Greetings. Nets-Thunder tip shortly. I’m not at Barclays. Didn’t make it back from Chicago in time to flirt with rush hour traffic. Back on Saturday but will tweet a few updates. – 8:30 PM

Chauncey Billups says Cody Zeller (right patellar fracture) banged knees in the #Blazers last game against the Nets. Says Zeller has been in quite a bit of pain the last couple of days. Zeller is out for tonight’s game in Denver. – 8:29 PM

Pelicans have been a completely different team in the clutch since Dec. 15 (the OKC 60-foot winner).
Prior to that, the Pels were 1-9 in clutch games. Since then, they are 6-3.
*The NBA defines clutch as the score within five in the final five minutes.

📅 On this day in 2007, the @Minnesota Timberwolves Kevin Garnett collected his 10,000th career rebound in a win over the Nets.
He went on to become one of three players in NBA history to reach career totals of 20,000 PTS, 10,000 REB, and 5,000 AST (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Karl Malone). pic.twitter.com/cL9psVVInf – 5:01 PM

Nets setting up an “All-Star Alley” on main concourse near section 24 at Barclays Center tonight with official voting booths from the NYC Board of Elections. It’s a 2-for-1 voting day for NBA All-Star. Fans who vote will receive a Nets “I Voted” sticker. – 3:53 PM
Howard Chen @TheHoChen
I feel so rotten for David Culley. He was given a bad roster expected to do HORRIBLY. His team showed fight even in the losses, something that can’t be said for so many teams. Davis Mills developed even when there were so many detractors and a banged-up offensive line. – 3:27 PM
Oklahoma City Thunder @okcthunder
The Thunder will look to include more bench play against a high-intensity Brooklyn team.
