This may seem boring to everyone else, but it was the best part of the game for everyone sitting on press row.
Highlight of the preseason: the man who yelled, "What up, Blatche?" last year just yelled it at Jarrett Jack. Jack responds, "What's up?"
SOmething is off with Mason Plumlee's free throws. The one-hand line drive has resulted in five straight misses.
Mason Plumlee having a rough night at the FT line. Now officially 0-for-4, but actually is 0-for-5 (had one re-do because of lane violation)
KG won't travel to BOS for Wed game w/ stomach flu. How sick is he, Lionel Hollins? "I don’t want to get into his personal bathroom habits."
"You'll find, a lot of times, that I have no clue what I’m doing." — funnyman Lionel Hollins, today.
“I don’t want to get into his personal bathroom habits." — Lionel Hollins, declining to answer a question about how sick Kevin Garnett is.
Hollins says he just wants to see a different look with Kirilenko starting in place of Teletovic. Both will play.
Hollins doesn't have a plan in mind going into the game in terms of minutes.
Andrei Kirilenko will start in place of Mirza Teletovic tonight.
The Nets that aren't injured or ill are jet-lagged to the point that it's impairing their ability to play basketball well.
Love this little guy more than anything in the world.. Straight up!!!
Amazing that Ratner would go to such great lengths to build arena in Brooklyn and then consider selling it at a loss, as SBJ reports.
Regarding Lampard's injury, heard it's a thigh strain, not expected 2 b longterm. Didn't travel with City to Moscow, rehabbing in Manchester
Nets saying they've been jet lagged and tired for last three days. Who wants to go to China next year?
The Nets players said they are still very jet-lagged after their promotional tour of China.
Lionel Hollins on Jerome Jordan scoring 17 and going 7-for-7: "Jerome who? I thought that was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar."
Lionel on Jordan: Who? I thought that was Kareem Abdul Jabar
That being said, 44 minute games are never happening anyway. Players union would understandably never go for it.
Today's game clocked in at 1:58. Would think a regular season game would take at least a few minutes longer, though.
Time of game according to official boxscore: 1 hour, 58 minutes.
Feeling a little sad for the man formerly known as the BrooklynKnight, who has been unmasked and now just wears a t-shirt at Nets games.
Nets are being outrebounded 35-25 and outscored 30-18 in points in paint and 14-0 in second chance points. All ugly numbers for them.
FWIW, sloppy games for both Teletovic and Bogdanovic today
Evan Turner is begging the refs to get Mr. Whammy out of the way behind basket during a pair of Jeff Green free throws. Joe Johnson chuckles
Even Turner is asking the referee if Mr. Whammy is allowed.
Nets are getting killed on the glass today. Have given up 13 offensive rebounds in first half, being outrebounded 29-17.
Much like with Shaun Livingston last year appears if Nets have size mismatch at either wing spot they'll but Bogdanovic/Johnson on the block
If the preseason has been any indication, the Nets are going to try to post up Bojan Bogdanovic a lot this season.
What up, Bogdanovic? does not have the same ring to it.
Blatche would look at the guy and laugh every time. It was a simple and beautiful gesture.
The guy with the impossibly raspy voice who yelled "What up, Blatche?" every game last season has no one to yell what up to, and that's sad
Despite the fact the Celtics have been shooting horribly, they are outrebounding the Nets 22-14. Rebounding is going to be an issue.
Just because Sly Fox wasn't as bad as the BrooklyKnight doesn't make it a good mascot.
Greg Maddux once threw a CG in a game that lasted 1:46. He also threw a 76-pitch CG. Baseball wouldn't need a committee if he always started
On a separate note, I'm not sure why so many people advocate for the return of Sly Fox. That was a terrible mascot.
Nets lead 24-17 after one. I would've voted for an 11-minute game today, but that's just me.
I don't know about flowing, but this game is going fast.
The officials are seemingly aiding the flow of the 44-minute game by not calling anything at either end. Missed travels at both ends.
Nets playing experimental 44-minute game. 1st qtr running time was 20 min. At this rate we'll be home to watch second half of Giants loss
Honestly forgot that Marcus Thornton was coming back to Brooklyn today with the Celtics.
Up-and-down first quarter for Mason Plumlee, but he's doing a good job of running the floor and to the rim.
Mr. and Mrs. Whammy have apparently returned from China without stomach viruses.
It doesn't look like there are any barbers on duty today at the Barclays Center barber shop.
Gerald Wallace = Available tonight at the Barclays Center.
No Kevin Garnett against the Celtics today. Still out with a stomach virus.
No Kevin Garnett tonight. Stomach virus.
