In his pregame press conference, Lionel Hollins announced that Bojan Bogdanovic would start in place of rookie shooting guard Markel Brown in Game 2. Brown played less than six minutes in Game 1 and didn't see the floor after the first quarter, while Bogdanovic saw 32 minutes off the bench.
Bojan Bogdanovic will start for Markel Brown. Hollins says it's to get off to a better start, make Kyle Korver guard someone early.

It will be interesting to see if Bogdanovic can spark the Nets to a Game 2 victory, but the Nets may still need Brown out there in situations where they can use his speed and athleticism.
The other big nugget out of Hollins' presser is the status of Mirza Teletovic. The Bosnian forward was called "probable" by Hollins Tuesday, and he was activated for the game.
Mirza has been activated, per Nets. Earl Clark is inactive.— devin kharpertian (@uuords) April 22, 2015
Mirza Teletovic is active tonight. Teletovic said the first four or five mins he plays, whenever that happens, will be "a hell of a ride."— Andy Vasquez (@andy_vasquez) April 22, 2015
Teletovic would likely take the eight minutes that Earl Clark played in Game 1 if he were able to get out on the floor, if he is in game shape.
