In his hometown, Marcus Thornton couldn't finish the game. "The Baton Rouge Bomber" left Monday's contest early with a bruised lower back. He was ruled out for the rest of the game at halftime.
Marchus Thornton has a bruised lower back and will not return to the game, per #Nets

Thornton had three points on just one-of-six shooting, so it seemed like tonight may have not be his nights. However, with the Nets and their back issues, hopefully this doesn't linger like it has with Andrei Kirilenko and Kevin Garnett.
