Coach K courtside tonight. Coached Kyrie, Seth Curry and RJ Barrett at Duke. Remember when Mikhail Prokhorov wanted to pay him $12-15 million to coach here? Also he’s sitting right next to Wham-dog. Basketball royalty in their own rights. pic.twitter.com/daEjx7cnie5:23 PM

Well, the Nets shot 64.5% on Wednesday, so the Nuggets shooting 61.4% so far is progress, I suppose. – 4:46 PM

Sixers “got away with” many of these types of awful defensive sets vs the lakers and nets, cause the offense was lights out. But not today. pic.twitter.com/admy2UgOZY4:16 PM

Jacque Vaughn points out the Nets were a different team the last time they faced the Knicks in November. Was his first official game as head coach so he had yet to put his stamp on them yet. Nets held the Knicks to 85 points. Points out the Knicks have played better, too. – 3:52 PM

Woj again says Nets are actively seeking frontcourt help ahead of the deadline:
“You see when (Claxton) is off the floor how vulnerable they are on that front line. So they’ll be looking for some athleticism, some size in the frontcourt between now and the trade deadline.” – 3:43 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
After the Nets shot 64% against the Sixers Wednesday, the Nuggets have started 11-of-19 from the floor including 5-of-10 from deep. Balanced scoring, too. Every Nugget who has entered has scored except Green, who just came in two minutes ago. – 3:32 PM
