The Nets will look to become the second New York team in two days to knock off the Heat, when Brooklyn and Miami play at the Barclays Center tonight. While we look forward to that matchup, one of 12 games on the evening’s slate, here are a few notes from around the Eastern Conference:
- As expected, the Sixers have recalled Lorenzo Brown after a one-game stint with the Delaware 87ers, the team announced today in a press release. Philadelphia assigned Brown to the D-League yesterday, and he contributed 22 points and seven rebounds in a loss to the Texas Legends.
