Bruce Brown said KD didn’t talk to him about his comments the other night regarding Horford/Theis. Was he surprised KD said something postgame?

“No,” Brown said with a smile. – 12:59 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Bruce Brown uses everything for motivation: slipping to the second round, defenses sagging off him, and yes even having to settle for the $4.7 million qualifying offer last summer when many thought he’d get double that. Fuel for the fire. #nets – 12:57 PM Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA

Ime Udoka on Bruce Brown’s comments last night on the #Celtics‘ defense being hamstrung w/out Robert Williams: “If he thinks it’s attack time because Rob’s out, obviously we played quite a few games without him now and have done good enough to beat some good teams.” #Nets #NBA – 12:55 PM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

Bruce Brown is wearing a shirt that says “Boston.” Kyrie Irving sees it as they cross paths on the ways in and out of the press conference room. Irving gives Brown an annoyed grin when he sees it.

Brown: “It’s for T. Clarke.”

FINAL: Nets 115, Cavs 108

Kyrie Irving (34 PTS, 12-15 FG), Kevin Durant (25 PTS, 11 ASTS), Bruce Brown (18 PTS, 9 REBS) & the Nets ARE PLAYOFFS BOUND. With the win tonight they are now set to face the Boston Celtics in what is going to be an absolute classic. – 9:29 PM Sopan Deb @SopanDeb

How did Bruce Brown have to settle for the qualifying offer and be out of the rotation at the start of the year? – 9:12 PM Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney

Whoever is supposed to be covering Bruce Brown tonight apparently was never told. He repeatedly has no defender anywhere around him. – 9:11 PM Yaron Weitzman @YaronWeitzman

Bruce Brown playing so well. Such a great example of how to be a weapon even as a non-shooter – 9:10 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Bruce Brown shot the floater instead of hitting KD wide-open in the corner. He missed the floater, and Andre Drummond got the rebound and got hacked. KD didn’t move from the corner and grilled Bruce, who told him my bad. Drummond went 1/2 from the foul line. – 8:25 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

End of 1st QTR: Nets 40, Cavs 20

Kyrie Irving (11 PTS), Kevin Durant (8 PTS), Bruce Brown (7 PTS) & the Nets are getting what they want in the paint. They’re outscoring Cleveland 18-10 in the interior. Brooklyn is also taking care of the ball, they only have one turnover. – 7:35 PM Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney

Irving is 5 for 5, Durant is 3 for 3 – and Bruce Brown has as many shots as the two of them combined. Cavs have to find somebody they can stop quickly. Nets threating to run away with this, up 15 late in the first quarter. – 7:34 PM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

Bruce Brown getting up to 50/40/76 is huge.

Next is upping the volume of threes and see how the percentage holds up. If he can get up to 4-5 3PAs per game and be 38% or so from three, that’s huge. Playmaking and defense are already terrific.

He’s going to get PAID this summer. – 7:27 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Another timeout here in the first quarter for Cavs coach JB Bickerstaff. The Nets hold a 23-14 lead in their Play-In Tournament game, and are playing a well-rounded opening quarter. Bruce Brown leads all scorers with 7 points. – 7:24 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Timeout Cavs. Nets lead 15-9 with 7:12 left. Bruce Brown with seven points already. Hit a corner 3 and took some contact, but got the layup. Andre Drummond has four rebounds in five minutes. – 7:15 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

More on this storyline

Gary Washburn: Durant on Brown’s comments: “We don’t need to say shit like that. Let’s just go out there and hoop.” #Celtics #Nets -via Twitter @GwashburnGlobe / April 13, 2022 Gary Washburn: Kevin Durant just heard Bruce Brown’s words and is trying to calm the narrative: “That’s caffeine pride talking. Those dudes (Horford and Theis) can do the same things (as Williams).” #Celtics #Nets -via Twitter @GwashburnGlobe / April 13, 2022 Sources say that much of the discontent between Harden and the Nets started in September when he arrived into training camp out of shape. Durant had been understanding of Harden’s predicament in Houston as a man in need of new scenery, but also tacitly expected his former teammate to commit himself to conditioning and self-care when he came seeking a title in Brooklyn, according to a source close to both stars. -via ESPN.com / April 12, 2022
