Good morning: Steve Nash, Seth Curry and Nic Claxton are set to talk at shootaround shortly.
From yesterday: The Nets don’t plan on going big to match Boston’s size, so plan on getting Curry more involved. #NetsLevel #Netsworld nydailynews.com/sports/basketb…10:31 AM

Ben Simmons did 4 on 4 yesterday and scripting—“5 on 0, running thru the plays”—today. Yesterday was Simmons’ first day of contact when he played with some teammates. Asked how Simmons’ back reacted to the contact, Nash said: “So far so good. He managed yesterdays activity well.” – 1:46 PM

Jordan Schultz @Schultz_Report
Three key plays here for the #Nets:
1. Excellent transition defense from Kevin Durant staying vertical while back-peddling (very difficult)
2. Goran Dragic misses the push shot, but knows Nic Claxton is right there
3. Claxton again makes a winning play with the and-1 follow pic.twitter.com/ujGpL7kXtQ5:54 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nic Claxton with 11 points, six rebounds and three blocks in 20 minutes. Since March he’s played great. – 5:35 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Nic Claxton just bodied up Al Horford and rejected him at the rim. – 5:26 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Drummond just picked up his fourth foul with 4:48 left in the 2nd. A lot of Nic Claxton the rest of the way here. – 4:33 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nic Claxton is like Tonks from Harry Potter. Always switching up the hairstyle. Got to respect it. – 4:21 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Nic Claxton and Patty Mills are the first Nets off the bench in Game 1. – 3:59 PM
