What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Mike Lynch @SportInfo247
Shake Milton in last 5 games: 23.6 ppg, 6.6 rpg, 7.0 apg, over 60% from the field
Sixers to do that in a 5-game span per @Stathead :
Wilt Chamberlain, Charles Barkley and Ben Simmons
Throw in the 3s and the near-perfect FT shooting & no Sixer has ever had a run quite like this – 8:32 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Mavs hoping history repeats itself re Hardaway. Go back to 19-20. Hardaway spent 1st 13 coming off bench and struggled. When Seth Curry got hurt, He was moved into the lineup vs GS & never looked back
Off Bench:10.2 pts/34.4%FG/29.5% 3pt.
Starter: 17.1 pts/45% FG/41.6 3pt. – 8:05 PM

UNC-Alabama was the THIRD four-OT game I’ve covered in my career. There was an awful Bulls-Pistons one in December 2015, and Game 3 of the Blazers-Nuggets playoff series in 2019 apnews.com/article/sports…7:54 PM

North Carolina and Alabama headed to overtime. Caleb Love missed a step back 3 on Tar Heels final possession and then Jahvon Quinerly misses pull-up in final seconds.

Really impressive fourth quarter from a defensive standpoint by Brooklyn.
Portland has 14 points. Nets have overwhelmed them and swarmed the glass to finish possessions. – 5:19 PM

Ben Simmons just played outstanding isolation defense then grabbed a rebound and fired a great get-ahead pass to Royce who got fouled.
That was a nice sequence. – 4:59 PM

They began the year ranked No. 16 in the AP Poll – 4:56 PM

Nets extend the lead back to four with 10 minutes remaining.
Everytime they’ve built some cushion lately they’ve given it right back. Need to come out of this timeout locked in. – 4:56 PM
Barbara Barker @meanbarb
So glad this is a 3 p.m. game. Nets lead Portland 87-83 early in fourth. No team has led by double digits and there have been 16 lead changes. – 4:55 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Seth Curry is up to 19 points on 7/10 from the field and 5/7 from three.
He’s been the difference for the Nets off the bench. – 4:55 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Ben Simmons turns it over sprinting up the floor.
But answers doing the same thing and finding Seth Curry with a sick pass for a three.
Nets lead 87-83 with 9:56 remaining. – 4:54 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Seth Curry hits another 3 on a hell of a feed from Simmons. He’s up to 19 points. Nets lead 87-83 with 9:56 left. – 4:54 PM

Not a good Ben Simmons game. – 4:52 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Seems to be a correction on Jerami Grant free throws attempts this afternoon – 4:51 PM

End of the third quarter: Nets lead the Blazers 84-80. KD leads four Nets in double-figures with 26 points. Nets getting a little more out of their bench than the Blazers. – 4:50 PM

Nets 84, Blazers 80: end of third quarter. 24 points, 5 assists, 3 rebounds for @Jerami Grant. 16 points, 6 rebounds/assists for @Justise Winslow. 11 points, 4 assists for @Anfernee Simons. 9 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists for @Jusuf Nurkic. – 4:49 PM

Probably not the best decision there. – 4:48 PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
The relief on Joe Harris’ face was palpable after he made that last 3. KD and several teammates came over to pump him up after that went down. Harris was 2 for his last 18 over the last three games prior to hitting that shot. He has really been struggling lately. – 4:40 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
The Nets are elite at giving up quick runs whenever it looks like they’re about to separate.
Every game. – 4:40 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Joe Harris hits his first 3 today and gets the foul. Durant and Claxton went right to him to bump him. He had missed his first three 3s. Completes the four-point play to extend the Nets’ lead to six. – 4:39 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
These misses from Joe Harris are just way off. No lift – front rim, side rim on every shot.
He looks nothing like himself. – 4:38 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Halftime: Nets lead the Blazers 58-57. Pretty even game so far. Nic Claxton hit a pair of free throws right before the break. He’s shot it a little better from the charity stripe lately. Jerami Grant has carried the Blaxers without Dame. KD has 15, Seth with 14 and Kyrie has 10. – 4:06 PM

He’s kept Brooklyn in this game. – 3:54 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Seth Curry is in the midst of a really nice first half. He’s already got 14 points and he’s 4-for-5 from beyond the arc. Nets already have 18 points off the bench today, thanks in large part for the rhythm Curry found early. – 3:53 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Seth Curry is up to 14 points on 5-for-7 shooting with four 3s. He’s cooking. – 3:52 PM
Brooklyn Nets @BrooklynNets

The Nets have so many players on this team that get destroyed at the point of attack.
Adding Cam Thomas to that mix is really tough. – 3:51 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
End of the first quarter: Nets lead the Blazers 31-24. Durant and Curry with nine apiece. Every Net who has played has scored, except Joe Harris, who checked in with a minute left in the quarter. Outscoring the Blazers in the paint by 10. – 3:37 PM

T.J. Warren is known for his shot creation, but he was very effective as a cutter and spot-up shooter with Indiana.
Shot 42.1 percent on catch and shoot threes over his last two seasons.
Really nice fit next to KD and Kyrie if that version shows up. – 11:25 AM
