Drew Gooden blocked 9 shots in 51 games this year and just stuffed a seven-footer on a dunk. Not Toronto’s best day.
Paul Pierce will average 12 points per game years after his death
Hollins said it depends on "how bad they are staring in the headlights. If they are about to get hit, I'm going to have to take them out."
Lionel Hollins had a good line when asked whether he'll let rookies Markel Btown and Cory Jefferson ride out any struggles in the playoffs.
Paul Pierce. Always entertaining.
“May 4th, 2015, For Immediate Release: Raptors Hire Paul Pierce As General Manager"
"It might be worth something one day," is what Pierce said about the headband after that game.
It was funny, after Game 1 last year, Pierce threw his headband into the Toronto crowd 3 times before someone kept it. He visibly loved that
This is probably a hot take alert, but the Wizards can't win this series if Bradley Beal is playing this badly.
Big "PAUL PIERCE SUCKS!” chant. Good thing for Pierce that he's used to blocking things out there.
Darius Morris returned to practice today. Raise the banner.

Correction: what KG said, unprompted, about last year’s Toronto crowd: http://t.co/Z7NpZZ14OV
As usual, smart move by Paul Pierce -- has no one talking about his team or its struggles ... all the focus is on him, which he's fine with.
"This is awesome" - said no one about "This Is Awesome"
I see plenty of Raptors fans are still wound tight about the Nets. Too bad that isn't a series again this year. Would've been lots of fun.
"From Dinosaur to Wizards, the Truth is still talking out of his a$$." LOL http://t.co/RQH8l0oJGw
Just curious, but did any analyst pick the Nets to win vs Hawks? Was looking for a counter argument to, well, everything else.
Rony Seikaly crushing Marquee this morning. Crazy transition from NBA C to DJ http://t.co/zXMz8Y5Azi
Might as well just give A-Rod the MVP now.
Southwest Division also had more teams with 50+ wins (4) than the East (3).
For comparison, here’s how everyone with >50 tightly guarded 3’s shot this year. Aaaaand Stephen Curry. http://t.co/gx0YjqZIvU
Stephen Curry shot 54% (34-63) on 3’s with “tight” defense (2-4 feet of separation). FIFTY. FOUR. PERCENT.
For example: Deron Williams shot 34.9% on 269 shots (3-28 from 3) when he dribbled 7 or more times before shooting.
NBA’s stats site released a lot of new toys today. Can track NBA rankings in shots/FG% by shot clock, touch time, # of dribbles, etc.

Reason Nets pick 41st in 2nd round: tied for 11th-worst record. Jazz/Pacers pick higher (lottery) in the first, so Nets get priority in 2nd.

"Ludacris will perform at Game 2 of the Hawks-Nets opening playoff series on Wednesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has learned."
Mirza Teletovic participated in full 5-on-5 drills. Aside from fitness and chemistry concerns, there's no reason he can't play Sunday.
Takes a while for first question in media session, Lionel Hollins goes: "Should I just walk away like Joerger?"
That being said, after seeing everything play out today, it would be a surprise to me if Mirza doesn't play at some point this series.
Mirza said he isn't going to lobby to play. Says he trusts doctors, coaches to decide when – or if – he'll return to game action.
Mirza Teletovic on how his shot feels after time away: "I feel good. If you have a shot, you have it."
Joe still gets booed in Atlanta: "I honestly don’t care. I’m part of the Brooklyn Nets and we have a job to do."
Joe Johnson: "I think we have a good chance."
Nets being coy about it but definitely left practice with the impression that Mirza will be playing.
Mirza is still on the court shooting 30 minutes after practice is over. Going through a rigorous workout with assistant coach John Welch.
