Ian Begley: Funny line from Jared Dudley when he was asked about advantages Nets might have in free agency over Knicks. He says NYK will always get more media attention in NYC. “(Knicks owner James) Dolan could burn down Manhattan and they’re going to talk about the Knicks, let’s be honest.”

Simmons, who has guarded Russell most of the series as the primary on-ball defender, has picked up his physicality with his former teammate by denying passes. “I just try to tell (Russell) you’ve got to dictate how you want the rest of the series to be called,” Nets forward Jared Dudley said. “Sometimes, it’s maybe D’Angelo getting an offensive foul pushing off because he feels he’s being held and that dictating for refs to look at it more. In playoffs and these games, there’s a lot of game within the game.”
He doubled down on Monday and gave the media more detail regarding his opinions on the second-year player. “My comments were basically directed as me being a coach or analyst, directing how we’re going to guard someone,” Dudley told reporters, via ESPN. “How we’re trying to guard [Simmons] is put him in the half court. The difference is I’m a player that just voices my opinion more directly. “I think he’s average in the half court, but you’re going to put him in because he’s elite, All-Star level in the full court.”
“I’m a 12-year guy. I’m not going to give you those points,” Dudley said. “I’ve guarded Kobe [Bryant] in the playoffs, Brandon Roy and Dirk Nowitzki. Those guys you have to play further out, so it’s not being disrespectful. Now he might have taken it [that way] because he heard the word average. So once he gets going, and he had such a good game [in game two]. In all those good games, I’m not on him.”
