Nets third-string PG Donald Sloan (illness) is inactive tonight. F/C Willie Reed (torn UCL right thumb) is active, though he just did some non-contact things in Friday's practice, and it would be a surprise if he plays. Reed has yet to play this season due to his injury.

With both playing in NYC, Brook Lopez had Thanksgiving dinner with twin brother Robin and Robin's girlfriend. "My mom came out, and she cooked for us. It was very relaxed," Brook said. "We hung out, we got Thanksgiving dinner, and two hours later, myself, Robin and his girlfriend went to 7-11 and got Slurpees, junk food, chips and queso. We just decided to all be fatties."

After Saturday night's game in Cleveland (11-4), the Nets will not have to travel outside of New York until Dec. 18. But as coach Lionel Hollins pointed out, their schedule remains tough.
