Three MLS players were shown on the jumbotron and Barclays somehow got quieter than it was just before they were shown

Rod Boone

Earl Clark drains a 3. Looking good so far. Even just took a heat check fast break three that bounced off the rim.

Lenn Robbins

After the #Nets draw at least their third offensive foul = @Markel Brown on @JR Smith , #Cavs coach David Blatt gets called for a T

Devin Kharpertian

Earl Clark Heat Check time in Nets-Cavaliers, which is a sentence I never expected to say.

Tim Bontemps

Earl Clark with a heat-check. This game has been all kinds of weird.

Tom Lorenzo

Earl Clark last played for the Shandong Flaming Bulls vs. the Jiangsu Tong Xi. Now he's in the NBA guarding Kevin Love. #LifeComesAtYouFast

Rod Boone

Five turnovers for Deron tonight. Brook has four himself.

Tim Bontemps

In Blatt's defense, at least a couple of them were 50-50 calls that went against his team.

Tim Bontemps

David Blatt just got T'd up for going to referee Pat Fraher and saying "four times!" - referring to the four charges Cavs have been hit with

Devin Kharpertian

David Blatt hit with a technical foul for arguing with referees. Cavs have been called for many an offensive foul tonight.

Mike Mazzeo

I don't know about that call. Blatt seemingly rightfully upset. Gets T'd up.

Lenn Robbins

If Earl Clark wants to stay on the court he needs to keep Kevin Love off the offensive glass..It's that simple #Nets #Cavs

Tim Bontemps

Lionel Hollins was going to take out Earl Clark, but after Clark made a jumper and saved a loose ball Hollins changed his mind.

Lenn Robbins

Earl Clark buries a corner jumper 1-for-1 as a #Nets player..Hollins said he won't hesitate to play him

Rod Boone

Earl Clark buries his first shot.

Rod Boone

LeBron measured that all the way. Had Joe set in his sights and got one of his trademark blocks on a fast break.

Mike Mazzeo

LeBron with the block of the night

Mike Mazzeo

Earl Clark checks in

Lenn Robbins

Earl Clark makes his #Nets debut..surprising time..

Tom Lorenzo

Earl Clark enters, making his Brooklyn Nets debut.

Tim Bontemps

Earl Clark checks into the game for the first time with 7:43 to go in the third quarter.

Devin Kharpertian

Earl Clark makes his Nets debut.

Lenn Robbins

#Nets w their first letdown spell of the game. #Cavs go ahead 63-61..Timeout w 8:22..Kevin Love's 3 puts Cleve ahead..Key stretch

Andrew Keh

March 27, 2015, the day Mr Whammy literally got incensed and kept ethering the whole Cavaliers team

Lenn Robbins

#Nets w 4 in double figures led by @TheJoeJohnson7 w 12 and 7 assists. #Nets got 30 off the bench.. #Cavs got 14. @LeBron James

Bear in mind Whammy's whole shtick is not knowing who opposing players are

Andrew Keh

Mr. Whammy claims LeBron is the only player who asks arena security to move him from his usual spot under the basket.

Rod Boone

Mr. Whammy said the #Cavs complained about him being underneath the basket and they made him move from his usual spot. Says it's all LeBron.

Tim Bontemps

Mr. Whammy said the same thing would happen when LeBron played in Miami, and he's the only players who has made him move.

Tim Bontemps

Mr. Whammy, who was not allowed to take his usual spot under the basket during free throws in 1st half, says it was because of LeBron James.

Tim Bontemps

Nets lead 57-56 at half. Joe Johnson 12p 7a; Bojan Bogdanovic, Alan Anderson 11 p; Brook Lopez 10 p; LeBron James 16p; Kyrie Irving 10p.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets lead 57-56 at the half. Maybe Joe Johnson’s best all-around half since taking over vs. Detroit early in the season.

Lenn Robbins

Can the #Nets continue to match the #Cavs firepower? Lad 57-56 at the half..Brooklyn hasn't had one of those lapses..

Rod Boone

Whammy just called LeBron "a bum." Never heard him this angry before.

Rod Boone

Mr. Whammy not happy with LeBron: "You're a crybaby," he says.

Andrew Keh

This is the angriest I've ever seen Mr. Whammy.

Lenn Robbins

#Hawks have the best record but it's hard to see the #Cavs not being the best team in the East..so many options #Nets tied 52-52

Mike Mazzeo

Four first-half turnovers for Deron Williams. Three for Brook Lopez. #Nets playing very well, though. Up 52-48 late in second Q.

Tim Bontemps

It feels like the Cavaliers are in complete cruise control, yet are only trailing 52-48. Nets have had a lot of careless turnovers.

Tim Bontemps

Joe Johnson just successfully defended a Kevin Love post-up. Been that kind of game so far for the Nets, who lead 50-48.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets have played fantastic basketball. The Cavaliers are fantastic at basketball. This is an oddly good game.

Tim Bontemps

Terrific column from @MikeVacc on why Danny Hurley is the right man for the job of turning around St. John's: nypost.com/2015/03/27/st-…

Mike Mazzeo

The #Nets bench has been really, really good tonight. So has LeBron.

Rod Boone

Joe has 10 points and 5 assists. Been a minute since he's played this well.

Devin Kharpertian

Jarrett Jack has made 387 consecutive mid-range jumpers against the Cavaliers.

Tim Bontemps

Two charges on LeBron James in the first half of this game. Don't see that very often.

Rod Boone

Alan Anderson draws the charge on LeBron, the second one the Nets have collected against him tonight.

Rod Boone

#Giants Victor Cruz is among the celebs in the house watching #Nets v. #Cavs tonight.

Devin Kharpertian

This is the best Joe Johnson has looked in weeks.

Tim Bontemps

Nets open the second with Jarrett Jack, Joe Johnson, Bojan Bogdanovic, Alan Anderson and Mason Plumlee.

Rod Boone

End of 1st Q: #Nets 29, #Cavs 27: Brook has 10 points and 4 rebounds, Joe has 10 points. Kyrie leads #Cavs with 8 points and 2 assists.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets lead 29-27 after 1. Nine days ago, they led the Cavs 26-23 after 1, and lost 117-92.

Lenn Robbins

Wow! New routine by the @Brooklynettes Music has a Middle-Eastern flair..This doesn't happen without a lot of hard work..#Nets up 29-27

Mirza Teletovic

hanging now with my man Sergey,watching the game against Cavs in the loackeroom http://t.co/cb3JaFPzJ8

Mike Mazzeo

Joe Johnson has 10 points and three assists. #Nets trail #Cavs 23-21.

Rod Boone

I think Kyrie was just talking trash to Mr. Whammy after hitting a free throw.

Devin Kharpertian

Joe Johnson has scored or assisted on 17 of the first 19 Nets points.

Devin Kharpertian

LeBron James is playing great defense for both teams right now.

Lenn Robbins

I was on 2nd and 6th yesterday when that building blew..The randomness of life never ceases to amaze me..Amazed at #NYFD braveness

Andrew Keh

Multiple Cavaliers players have stared/jawed at Barclays fans -- this, in perhaps the league's most hospitable arena for visiting teams.

Rod Boone

Kyrie Irving bakes Markel Brown, hits a rainbow jumper and turns around and says something to a fan who kept shouting, "Good defense!"

Devin Kharpertian

Joe Johnson has jumped higher on his two three-pointers than I’ve seen in weeks.

Devin Kharpertian

Markel Brown played some beautiful defense on Kyrie Irving and Kyrie just steps back and hits a 17-footer. Just ridiculous.

Lenn Robbins

After @Markel Brown slows @LeBron James on a fast break, he gestures to teammates to get back on defense. James found Love for a dunk. #Nets

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams has already made the crowd ooh twice with dribble moves. (Neither ended in a basket.)

Rod Boone

Mr. Whammy doesn't know LeBron's name. He said, "Hey, No. 23. Look at me!"

Tim Bontemps

LeBron James misses a finger roll and then makes a circus and-one. Sounds about right.

Rod Boone

JR Smith bangs in a 3 over Markel Brown and looks back at a few fans to talk a little trash. ... And we're off.

Devin Kharpertian

We’re 30 seconds into the game and J.R. Smith has both called a time-out because he couldn’t find a teammate and hit a wild 20-footer.

Andrew Keh

The Cavaliers took a timeout 11 seconds into this game.

Tom Lorenzo

11 seconds into the game we have a 20-second timeout

Lenn Robbins

Don't want to hear any more Brook Lopez criticism. He's playing like one of the to best players in the #NBA #Nets

Lenn Robbins

1 of those nights u really want to be @barclayscenter #Nets about to tip off against the #Cavs & @LeBron James Bklyn 1-half game out o playoffs

Devin Kharpertian

Sorry, correction — 11 Nets players, now that they’ve signed Earl Clark.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets scorekeeper Herb Turetzky’s streak of games dates back to May 1984. It’s longer than the lives of 10 Nets players.

Jack’s tendinitis is in his left (non-shooting) elbow.

Devin Kharpertian

Something to watch: Jarrett Jack has tendinitis in his elbow. Warmed up with kinesthetic tape. Says he's fine, just wear & tear.

Devin Kharpertian

Always a different feeling at Barclays Center when LeBron comes to town. More fans, more courtside pregame buzz.

Tim Bontemps

Blatt also said, however, that teams being worse at home "is a mystery to him." It is to everyone else, too.

Tim Bontemps

David Blatt has a theory on why Nets may be better on the road: "Sometimes teams perform better away from the pressure of being at home."

Lenn Robbins

#Nets Hollins: Defending @LeBron James We've got to be ready to help when he attacks & b disciplined & stay home when he's just trying to bait.

Mike Mazzeo

David Blatt does not use Twitter or Instagram, in case you were curious.

Tim Bontemps

Lionel Hollins: "The players earn coach of the year award for the coach, just like they do for the executive of the year for the executive."

Devin Kharpertian

It took some digging, but Lionel Hollins said Mason Plumlee will start for Thaddeus Young. Rest of the starters remain the same.

Lenn Robbins

"I'm not afraid to put guys in the game and see what they can do." - Hollins on giving Earl Clark minutes.. Clark will wear No.55

Tim Bontemps

Starters will be the same except for Mason Plumlee for Thaddeus Young

Rod Boone

Mason will start for Thaddeus.

Other thing to remember about Durant: team says he'll be back in "4-6 months." A bone graft isn't a minor procedure.
