Joe Johnson returns to Atlanta yet again to face his former team in the Atlanta Hawks. His original debut as a road player at Atlanta's Philips Arena earlier this year didn't go very well for the Nets

Just 1.5 games separate these two teams--the Nets and Hawks-- in the Eastern Conference standings right now, with Brooklyn in 4th place and Atlanta down in 7th. That fact makes tonight's matchup down in Georgia very important for playoff seeding purposes, and with the Nets (mainly D-Will) coming off a record-breaking win at home last night vs the Wizards--and Atlanta stuck in a 1-4 slump--the initial advantage may lean towards Brooklyn. Furthermore, former Hawk Joe Johnson returns as an opponent to Atlanta for just the second time since his offseason trade up north to the Nets, something else which should make this game a little bit more int...

While I will probably never propose to a girl at a sporting event, some guys think it is the perfect place to the drop the question.
During a recent Brooklyn Nets game, one Nets fan got down on his knees to pop the question to his special someone and let's say that she was a little shocked:
Thankfully, she said yes and well, nothing says "Let's Get Married...
Look at that determination! And forehead!
If I told you that the Nets only scored 93 points last night and gave up 10 to Johan "Beaker" Petro alone, you might think that they lost last night's contest with the Atlanta Hawks. Au contraire, as Brooklyn actually held the Hawks as a team to 80 in Atlanta last night, leading to the Nets' 3rd-straight...
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a post regarding a Foot Locker commercial starring James Harden and Kris Humphries called "Entourage".Well, the fine folks over at Foot Locker decided to release an alternate ending to that commercial which can be seen below:Huh, I wonder what Kris wanted to use the time machine for?
It always amazes me when there is a team like the Hawks that is playing well and yet their fans aren't really behind them. Unlike the Raptors, who aren't playing so well, yet have over a hundred pages on 3 or 4 different boards, it's hard to find an active game thread for the Hawks. I mean, even the Bobcats have a more loyal following than the Hawks. I say...
Deron Williams sensed the disappointment from the crowd, strange as it seemed given how well he played.
He gave the ball to the open man - just what a point guard is supposed to do.
''I thought they were going to boo me one time because I didn't shoot it,'' he said.
In one of the best 3-point shooting nights in NBA history, who wanted to see him pass?
Deron Williams made an NBA-record nine 3-pointers in the first half, finished with 11 and scored a season-high 42 points to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 95-78 victory over the Washington Wizards on Friday night.
Williams made his first eight shots behind the arc, became the first player in a decade to match the opposing team's score in the first half, and was one shy of the NBA...
Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton (with help from Al Dukes) called the Brooklyn Nets game last night for WFAN. Here's the call of all eleven of Deron Williams' threes, including his record breaking 9...

Here are video highlights of Paul Pierce, Jason Terry, and Jordan Crawford from the game last night against the Atlanta Hawks. All of these videos are courtesy of OfficialCeltics. Paul Pierce had 27 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists. Jason Terry had 19 points and 5 assists, along with the biggest shot of the night: a 3-pointer to up the Celtics up 3 with 35 seconds left in overtime...
There is no love lost between the Atlanta Hawks and Boston Celtics. Ever since the teams clashed through seven hard-fought games in the first round of the 2008 Playoffs, it seems, both teams have had each others' number. There have been matchups, dustups and confrontations - with notable incidents involving Paul Pierce and Al Horford, Jeff Teague and Ray Allen (to which KG...
