Reggie Evans led the Nets in the first half with eight points and 10 rebounds, a first half in which the team as a whole played poorly
I feel like I say this a lot about the games in which the Nets play bad teams, but tonight was ugly yet turned into a win for Brooklyn. The first half was pretty atrocious, especially the second quarter in which the reserves let the starters down yet again. However, rebounding from a double-digit second quarter deficit, the Nets came back with a fury after halftime to snatch the advantage back from the hapless Pistons, a team Brooklyn (going back to the New Jersey days of course) hadn't beaten on the road in 10 tries.
As they did unsuccessfully last night against the Lakers, the Nets focused their last game offensive efforts in Brook Lopez who was able to outplay Greg Monroe down the stretch to help hold the lead. Clearly, this team is more effective in comebacks when working inside-out (starting the ball in the post and k...

Brooklyn Nets rookie forward Mirza Teletovic, a 27-year-old rookie from Bosnia, shot three consecutive air balls during the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's NBA game against the Detroit Pistons. We can not confirm whether Teletovic set an NBA record in the process.
As of this writing, Teletovic only averages about 8 minutes a game (in 28 games played). It's going...
It's not often you see NBA players air ball jump shots unless the shot gets tipped. Mirza Teletovic of the Brooklyn Nets accomplished this feat last night.....three consecutive times.
Although Mirza only averages about eight minutes and 3.4 points a game, he still needs to shoot better than this. I would almost have to compare this to a hat trick in soccer or hockey...
Nets Deron Williams recently dropped $15.8 million on a 6,800 square foot penthouse just across the Brooklyn Bridge in Tribeca. Check out the deets on his new spot and of course check out a few photos:

Even after 14 All-Star seasons, Kobe Bryant has been called just about everything while visiting an NBA opponent's building. But one thing he is usually never called outside the comfy confines of Staple Center is, "M-V-P!."
Bryant didn't hear the chant only once during the Lakers game against the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center Tuesday night — but three...
Maybe sit this next one out, Champ.
Brooklyn rookie Mirza Teletovic had the dubious honor Wednesday night of shooting airballs on three consecutive possessions in the third quarter of the Nets game against the Detroit Pistons. With his team up 74-73, Teletovic attempted a wide open 3-pointer that wasn’t even close. On the following trip down the floor he tried a fallaway jumper...
While the Brooklyn Nets have cooled off a bit since their blistering run that followed the firing of its head coach in December, they remain in the hunt for a high-seed come playoff time thanks in large part the continued high production from its “core four.”
Nets rookie forward, Mirza Teletovic, airballed three consecutive shots in under a minute during the fourth quarter of Brooklyn’s 93-90 victory over the Pistons Wednesday:

Kobe put on a second-half show to led the Lakers to a win tonight
No Dwight Howard, no Metta World Peace, no problem. After a third-quarter surge by the home-team Nets to take back the lead, the Lakers--led by a heating-up Kobe Bryant--edged Brooklyn, their 10th-straight win over the Nets. Sweeping the season series, LA led by nine points at half before Brooklyn...
After opening 2013 with their best stretch of the season, the Brooklyn Nets have fallen way off that pace lately.
A visit to Detroit is probably not coming at the most opportune time.
Brooklyn will try to snap a string of 10 straight road losses to the Pistons on Wednesday night.
The Nets (28-20) were riding high after winning 10 of 11 last month, but things began to turn with...
