Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov is in Brooklyn tonight as they take on the T'Wolves in the club's second home game of the season. Prokhorov is taking the opportunity to further familiarize himself with some members of the club, including longtime scorekeeper Herb Turetzky, tweets Roderick Boone of Newsday. Turetzky was a staple at the Meadowlands when the Nets were in New Jersey, but the move to the Barclays Center marks a homecoming for the Brooklyn, New York native.
