Mirza Teletovic ACTIVE for Game 2; Bojan Bogdanovic to start in place of Markel Brown

Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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.

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.
