Nets quote Jay-Z to defend lack of Tinder night at Barclays Center

Thursday January 8th, 2015

The Atlanta Hawks are staging their much-publicized "Swipe Right Night" during Wednesday's game, during which fans can use Tinder to try to "match." When one Brooklyn Nets fan wondered why his team wasn't doing the same, the Nets hit back by quoting Jay-Z, a fan of the team and former minority owner of the franchise. 

Somewhat ironically, the Nets are closer to having 99 problems than the Hawks at the moment: Entering Wednesday's game, Atlanta leads the Eastern Conference with a 26-8 record while the Nets are 16-18.
