Straight From The Bleachers:

Bruce Ratner was definitely hoping for a better homecoming than this. The Cleveland native and Downtown Brooklyn real estate magnate watched his New Jersey Nets drop back-to-back games in his hometown, including Tuesday night’s 102-92 setback.

The soon-to-be-Brooklyn Nets trail the best-of-7 series, 2-0, entering Game 3 on Saturday evening at the Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford, N.J. The Nets, who are expected to be in Downtown Brooklyn by 2009, have never won an NBA title and haven’t reached the Finals since making back-to-back appearances in 2001-02.

NoLandGrab: Or in 2010, as predicted by Forest City Ratner, or never, if the eminent domain case is won by the residents. Note to Daily Eagle: Prospect Heights is still not in Downtown Brooklyn.
