Brook Lopez has a funny reason for wanting the season to continue, aside from the obvious reasons of wanting his team to win.
Nate Robinson has a very low center of gravity which allows him to do things like cross up defenders without losing control. Nate’s latest victim was Deron Williams of the Nets on Monday night during Game 5 of their Playoff series. He also finished the play with a very nice circus shot.

The Nets didn’t watch tape of the Game 4 collapse and ensuing triple OT Bulls victory to prepare for their Game 5 win. Head coach P.J. Carlesimo instead had his team watch footage of Bulls beat writer, Joe Cowley (Chicago Sun-Times), calling the Nets “heartless” and “gutless” in hopes of added motivation.
According to The Brooklyn Game:

Brook Lopez had 28 points and 10 rebounds, Deron Williams added 23 points and 10 assists, and the Brooklyn Nets beat Chicago 110-91 on Monday night, cutting the Bulls' lead to 3-2 in their first-round playoff series.

SHAKE HIM OFF
One of the great things that has come from the Brooklyn Nets/Chicago Bulls series is the re-emergence of Bulls guard Nate Robinson. In the third quarter of game four, Robinson showed Nets guard Deron Williams that his speed might be the most dangerous thing about him. Watch as Nate crosses Williams over and scores on a scooping lay-up:
No one is going to argue with the fact that this year’s first round of the NBA playoffs hasn’t exactly been the most exciting of all time. However, the halftime shows are really pulling out all the stops to keep the fans entertained. During halftime of Monday night’s Nets and Bulls playoff game a speed painting artist painted Deron Williams during the 20 minute break. The...
Typically this late into a NBA season, there has to be something motivating a player for the long haul of the playoffs. Whether that be the chase for that coveted championship ring, a new contract, or simply just the love of the game, there is something internally that motivates a player.
Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez has positioned himself as one of the best big men in...
The Nets took advantage of opportunities in Game 5.
The Brooklyn Nets won Game 5 by the same formula that worked for them in their series-opening win against the Chicago Bulls.
Let’s take a closer look at how the Nets staved off elimination.
Key Player: Deron Williams had it much easier vs Nate Robinson
With Kirk Hinrich out of the lineup in Game 5, Nate Robinson drew the start...
Though he feels as if he’s playing on one leg, Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Johnson will continue to play through pain and suit up for Game 6 against the Chicago Bulls, according to Mitch Abramson of The New York Daily News.“It’s kind of like I’m out there on one leg, honestly, man," Johnson said on Wednesday at the team's practice facility in East Rutherford.

The Brooklyn Nets signed Billy King to a contract extension last week to remain general manager, but sources expect Mikhail Prokhorov to again pursue Phil Jackson.
Prokhorov reached out to Jackson following the dismissal of Avery Johnson.
Jackson is interested in an advisory front office position and not in returning to coaching.
Prior to Game 6, a must win for the Nets to stay alive, Joe Johnson said he’s a decoy on the court for the Nets as he battles plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
According to Newsday:
“Late in games, I try to do what I can do to get us over the hump. I just have to play through it and gut it out . . . It’s kind of like I’m out there on one leg now. I’m a decoy, a spot-up...

I'll keep it short because it's late and I got back from the game pretty late too, but the Brooklyn Nets--facing elimination from the 2013 playoffs--stepped up in a massive way to hold on and beat the pesky...
Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson each scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets again avoided elimination, beating the short-handed Chicago Bulls 95-92 Thursday to tie their first-round series at 3.
The series goes back to Brooklyn for Game 7 on Saturday. The winner gets Miami in the second round.
The Bulls hung in until the end even though they were missing Luol Deng...
The Chicago Bulls looked like they were ready to eliminate Deron Williams and the Brooklyn Nets and move on to the second round of the playoffs.
They're still in position to do it. Things are just a little more interesting.
With a 3-2 lead, the Bulls will try again to wrap it up when the series shifts back to the United Center on Thursday.
The Nets seemed all but out of it...
