Long Island Nets to Raise 2018-19 Eastern Conference Championship Banner this Friday, November 15, at NYCB Live
LONG ISLAND (Nov. 13, 2019) - The Long Island Nets will raise their 2018-19 Eastern Conference Championship banner to the rafters of NYCB LIVE, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, in a pregame ceremony this Friday, Nov. 15, at 7 p.m. prior to the team's matchup against the Delaware Blue Coats. The banner raising ceremony will feature special video tributes.
The Nets ended the 2018-19 regular season with a 34-16 record, which tied for the best record in the NBA G League, and Long Island made its first appearance in the NBA G League playoffs in franchise history. In the Eastern Conference Championship game, current Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Theo Pinson scored a buzzer-beating three-point shot in overtime to send Long Island to the NBA G League Finals.
"It is an honor to lift the Eastern Conference Championship banner at Nassau Coliseum," said Alton Byrd, Vice President, Long Island Nets Business Operations. "We are humbled by the support of our fans and hope that this banner represents our commitment to excellence both on and off the floor."
The first 1,000 fans in attendance will receive a Kyrie Irving Brooklyn Nets jersey, courtesy of TGI Office Automation. The night will also include other special giveaways for fans and a performance by the Long Island Nets Kids Dance Team.
Arena doors open for the game at 6 p.m., and fans are encouraged to take their seats by 6:45 p.m. for the opening ceremony and banner raising.
