Goran Dragic will start in place of Seth Curry (ankle) alongside Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, Bruce Brown and Andre Drummond tonight against the Orlando Magic. Interesting decision by Steve Nash to start Dragic over Patty Mills. – 6:31 PM

The NYC mandate is inconsistent and makes no sense. But if there’s one person consistent with inconsistency, it’s Kyrie Irving. sports.yahoo.com/kyrie-irving-s…4:43 PM

18 years ago, the Detroit Pistons held five straight opponents to less than 70 points…
Still mad that the New Jersey Nets intentionally fouled and then broke the streak on a last-second tip-in on Mar. 18, 2004. pic.twitter.com/1g8ho2VG5P4:08 PM

Maddie Lee @maddie_m_lee
Ross said right now they’re planning for Alec Mills to be in the starting rotation.
So the guys penciled in (for now) are Kyle Hendricks, Marcus Stroman, Wade Miley and Mills, not necessarily in that order. – 3:42 PM

The Nets still have no idea when Ben Simmons will be able to make his season debut as he continues to deal with a back issue — but Steve Nash is hopeful that it will happen at some point before the regular season ends.

The one thing about Kyrie Irving which continues to vex me. and I haven’t been able to get an answer from NYC City Hall on this. Why is he allowed to practice at the Nets facility? Why wouldn’t the private sector mandate apply there? – 3:05 PM

Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
Spoke to a City Hall spokesperson and the Yankees and Mets fall under the same private sector mandate as Kyrie Irving and the Nets. No difference because it’s an outdoor sport. Spokesperson cautioned that things could change by Opening Day.
Story posted shortly – 2:45 PM

Twitter didn’t even exist.
Both Zalgiris & Olympiacos should retire their jersey. – 2:41 PM

Since the James Harden trade, @Bruce Brown is averaging 14 points on 53.5% FG and 44.4% 3PT.
Kevin Durant said Brown isn’t done developing his game, either: “This year, he’s playing like an all-around player… He is playing with ultimate confidence.”
