The Nets are resting, the Wizards are tanking, and this game doesn't matter. #PrayersForBoston.

PJ Carlesimo raved tonight about the growth of DeMar DeRozan and claimed the Toronto Raptors are looking poised for a big season in 2013-14.
Locked into the Eastern Conference's No. 4 seed, the Brooklyn Nets have little to play for down the stretch.
Making sure they're fresh for the playoffs is a much bigger priority.
Deron Williams is one of several players who could be rested as the Nets open a season-ending two-game homestand against the Washington Wizards on Monday night.
While Brooklyn (47-33) had a chance...

Toko (Nets rookie forward Tornike Shengalia from the Republic of Georgia) has quickly become a Brooklyn fan favorite, even though he hasn't played much. But tonight, he played a lot, and was a big role in the Nets winning this meaningless game
You know that sick point-guard matchup between Deron Williams and John Wall that I mentioned in the preview? Well...
Andre Blatche has been a very productive bench player for the Brooklyn Nets this season, which if you’re familiar with the 6-foot-11 forward’s past, is somewhat surprising.
Blatche has played in all 81 games for the Nets this season and is averaging 10.2 points, 5.1 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game and shooting 51 percent from the field.
But, according to a story courtesy Pro...
DeMar DeRozan scored 36 points, Rudy Gay had 26 points and 10 rebounds and the Toronto Raptors won their third straight game, never trailing in a 93-87 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday.
Amir Johnson had 10 points and nine rebounds for the Raptors, who hadn't won three straight since a five-game winning streak from Feb. 8 to 19.
DeRozan scored 14 in the fourth quarter...
P.J. Carlesimo talked with the media about how Rudy Gay's addition has changed the Raptors, the strong play of Deron Williams in the second half of the season and he supported Mike D'Antoni for playing Kobe Bryant big minutes this season.
The Brooklyn Nets still don't know who they'll play in the first round of the playoffs, but they hope to be fully rested and healthy once it starts.
With the Eastern Conference's fourth seed locked up, the Nets will go for their first season sweep of the Detroit Pistons in franchise history and sixth win in seven games overall Wednesday night in Brooklyn.
Does this guy ever not kill the Nets? Answer: No
No more regular season road games, no more chance of 50-win season, no more chance of #3 seed. A weird effort from the Nets commenced on Sunday afternoon, as the team that was coming off two major wins over playoff teams was thoroughly outclassed and outplayed by the team that has been out of the postseason...
The Brooklyn Nets' first playoff appearance since 2007 will be at home. That's still not good enough for them.
Brooklyn continues its push for the third seed in the Eastern Conference - and goes for its first season sweep of the Toronto Raptors in a decade - in Sunday's road finale.
After opening its three-game trip Wednesday with a 101-93 victory over Boston, the Nets...

The Wizards went into Brooklyn last night to play a game that would easily be mistaken for a Summer League matchup. With several key contributors from both teams sitting out the rest of the season, it was a battle between sloppy...
