James Harden said during his slow start that his body and conditioning weren’t ready to score 30 and 40 points. It took 13 games but Harden finally cracked 30 and nearly hit 40: ‘I’m getting there’ espn.com/nba/story/_/id…1:27 AM

Pels on a run and cut Nets’ lead to four. Without Kyrie, Steve Nash can’t stagger all three stars, making the minutes without KD and Harden crucial for opposing teams. – 8:44 PM

Jonas Valanciunas had his hands raised when Trey Murphy launched that 3. Regrettably, he missed, but love the fiery support that JV continues to play with for his teammates. – 8:38 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Nets close first quarter on a 15-4 run, lead Pelicans 33-25. New Orleans cooled while Brooklyn stayed hot, none more en fuego than Joe Harris (15 points, perfect 5-5 from 3-point range). – 8:34 PM
Will Guillory @WillGuillory
End of the 1st: Nets 33, Pelicans 25
Valanciunas 8 pts & 3 rebs
Temple 5 pts (2-6 FG)
Jones 5 pts
3-pointers
BKN: 7-10
NOP: 3-7 – 8:34 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
End of the first quarter: Nets lead the Pelicans 33-25. Game was tied at 21 before 12-4 run by the Nets to get some separation. Phish fan Joe Harris has 15 points on five 3s. Durant and Harden have combined for 16. Nets offense = fire emoji – 8:34 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
It’s a Generation Gap matchup between ex-Texas Longhorns with Jaxson Hayes facing LaMarcus Aldridge. Aldridge is shooting incredibly well this season (62 percent from field) and is trying to pull Hayes away from the basket on defense – 8:34 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
End of 1st QTR: Nets 33, Pelicans 25
Joe Harris (15 PTS, 5 3PM), Kevin Durant (9 PTS) and the Nets are just getting started. They’re sizzling from downtown (70%) and from the field overall, shooting it at 63%. The Pelicans won’t be able to keep up. – 8:33 PM
Scott Kushner @ScottDKushner
“When possible” so perfectly encapsulates New Orleans.
I mean, there are rules, but really it’s just a suggestion, right?

Kevin Durant stays on to run the second unit with Jevon Carter, LaMarcus Aldridge, DeAndre’ Bembry and Patty Mills. Aldridge promptly hits a mid-range shot because of course. – 8:32 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
This promised to be a big challenge vs. Nets tonight, but especially if Joe Harris is going to make every three (5 of 5 in 1Q) and Brooklyn is 7/9 from the arc – 8:30 PM
The Vertical @YahooSportsNBA
Joe Harris is locked in tonight.
He’s 5-5 from downtown in the first quarter 🎯

Adam Zagoria @AdamZagoria
Former @UVAMensHoops G Joe Harris is 5-of-5 from 3-point range in the first quarter for the Nets
That matches the most 3-pointers made in any quarter in Harris’ career.
He recently became the franchise’s all time 3-point leader – 8:29 PM

Based on forward injuries plus NAW, Graham, Valanciunas and Hart are subbed out in 1Q, this #Pelicans lineup has none of the team’s top six scorers – 8:27 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Joe Harris is 5-for-5 from behind the arc. The #Nets lead 26-21 with 3:04 left in the first. – 8:27 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
James Harden is getting better every single game. – 8:26 PM
Eliot Clough @EliotClough
I’d much rather have Didi Louzada, who was just sent to the G-League, in the game rather than freaking Tomas Satoransky – 8:26 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Joe Harris is 5-of-5 from 3-point range in the first quarter.
That matches the most 3-pointers made in any quarter in Harris’ career.
He made five threes in the first quarter on 2/11/19 at Toronto.

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
First off the bench, the new norm: LaMarcus Aldridge and DeAndre’ Bembry – 8:24 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Now a Temple-Jones double-team forces Kevin Durant into a travel.
Pelicans off to a very good start here in the first quarter. Up 21-18 with 4:23 to go. – 8:24 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
It ain’t a Nets game until James Harden complains to the ref for a call 🤣 – 8:23 PM

James Harden just picked up his second foul after reaching in on a Jonas Valanciunas drive… – 8:22 PM

Joe Harris with three early 3s. As my former @CoMissourian editor @Christian Clark said pregame, “Joe Harris looks like he’s going to a Phish concert.” So spot on. – 8:18 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Pelicans up 17-13 after Jonas Valanciunas drills a mid range baseline jumper. The Nets just aren’t interested in guarding him out there.
We’ve seen strong starts before. Let’s see how this holds up. – 8:18 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Joe Harris is on one this game, he’s made his first three shots from deep. – 8:18 PM
Eliot Clough @EliotClough
Nothing I love more than a Herb Jones three – 8:17 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
And now after a steal and then great ball movement, Herb Jones splashes home the wide open three.
Let the love fest commence. – 8:16 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Herb Jones didn’t give Blake Griffin an inch on the block. Impressive considering he’s giving up a lot of weight and strength. – 8:15 PM

Blake Griffin draws a charge 15 seconds into the game and puts on his steel-toed boots and hard hat. We need a GIF of that celebration. – 8:12 PM

I asked Paul Millsap about his limited playing time. He deadpanned “Limited? I’m just kidding. It’s tough, obviously. You go in the game, you got five minutes to contribute, right? Five minutes isn’t a long time on the basketball court. But you do the best that you can.” #Nets8:08 PM

Greetings from Smoothie King Center. Nets-Pelicans tip in less than 10. Pels are 1-11 and have no Zion or Brandon Ingram tonight. The Nets don’t have the same problem. I don’t expect this to be close. Updates to follow. – 7:56 PM

Willie Green talked in tonight’s pregame about a conversation that he had with Nickeil Alexander-Walker prior to Wednesday’s game against the Thunder.
Nickeil responded with a 33-point performance, but I like Green’s approach and choice of words to NAW more than that box score. pic.twitter.com/pQ9Jxagr1s7:22 PM

Keys to tonight’s game 🔑

▪️ NOP can’t afford to give up points via turnovers (only 10 vs. OKC), techs (5)

One thing that stands out to me watching Pelicans: All the early-clock semi-contested 3s from not-great shooters. OKC game was four minutes old before they got what you’d call a good shoot. You don’t need your 8th-best shooter slinging these with the clock at 15. pic.twitter.com/4M4jqHnkwi3:46 PM
