WASHINGTON - The Washington Wizards hit late shots to force two overtime periods, but the final big shot belonged to Joe Johnson of the Brooklyn Nets. Johnson sank the game-winning jumper with 0.7 seconds remaining in double-overtime, and Brook Lopez had 27 points and 13 rebounds as the Nets survived for a wild 115-113 win over Washington on Friday. After the Wizards drained final-second shots to force both overtime sessions, Johnson returned the favor with a deep bomb from the right wing after Bradley Beal's free throws tied the game with 9.1 seconds remaining. Deron Williams finished with 24 points and 10 assists for the Nets (18-15) and Johnson added 18 points. Amnestied by the Wizards this summer, Andray Blatche had 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Nets, winners of two straight road games. Brooklyn trailed after each of the first three quarters, but held leads with less than four seconds remaining in both the fourth quarter and the first overtime, overtime only to s...

Wednesday night the Brooklyn Nets were in Oklahoma City, facing a Thunder team that was more than ready to annihilate the soul-searching Nets. Instead, Brooklyn came out firing and shocked the world by defeated the Thunder 110-93.
So Friday night’s game against the worst team in the league, the Washington Wizards, should have been an easy victory...
As Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries left the court in Oklahoma City to deal with an injury late in the 4th quarter, he shook hands with some of the fans in the stands and one lady completely freaked out. I’m assuming the Thunder fan JUST realized that a basketball player at the end of the game is pretty gross and sweaty or maybe she is a Kayne West fan.
One thing is for sure...
The Wizards will have another sort of reunion [Friday] when Andray Blatche returns to the place that he called home for the first seven seasons of his career before he was waived using the amnesty provision last July.
Since joining Brooklyn, Blatche certainly hasn’t endeared himself to fans in Washington as he has poked fun at his former team for its lousy start on Twitter and...
The Brooklyn Nets organization has displayed many times through its actions in the past year that they are in “win-now-or-bust” mode.
From their move to Brooklyn that enhanced a new, modern-age image rivaling any team around the league to their lucrative off-season spending in an effort to appease their star point guard Deron Williams, it is easy to see the goal is to win...
Tweet As a rookie last season MarShon Brooks showed why he was among the better scorers in college basketball as a senior and gave the Nets a glimpse of what they could expect for years to come. With the Nets revamping the roster during the offseason (including the addition of six-time All-Star Joe Johnson) [...]
Brook Lopez scored 18 points in 17 minutes to lead six players in double figures, and the Brooklyn Nets got a nice effort from their reserves in beating the Sacramento Kings 113-93 on Saturday night for their third straight victory.
One night after needing two overtimes to escape with a 115-113 victory in Washington, the Nets made sure the starters weren't too taxed. Deron Williams...
NEW YORK -- The Brooklyn Nets weren't too worn out from their double-overtime game the previous night to again extend a warm welcome to interim coach P.J. Carlesimo. The Nets dominated the surging Sacramento Kings for most of the game along the way to a 113-93 win Saturday night at the Barclays Center, helped largely by their bench, which contributed 50 points. The starters...
John Wall is coming closer to his return for the Washington Wizards since being out with an injury to his left knee. The star point guard practiced on Thursday in limited contact drills, according to USA TODAY. Wall did not speak to any reporters but participated in some running and non-contact drills throughout the day.
Wall was impressive in his first practice, as many players...
Now we know why Phil Jackson didn't get hired by the Lakers and doesn't want to come back and coach the Brooklyn Nets. He needed some time to himself to get engaged to long time girlfriend Jeanie Buss. I'm guessing the honeymoon isn't going to be very cheap either, so maybe Phil will make his return to the NBA next season.

Brook Lopez is the highest scoring center in the NBA, but DeMarcus Cousins isn't far behind.
Although Cousins got the better of the most recent matchup, it was Lopez and the Brooklyn Nets that emerged with the win.
The centers will be matched up for the final time this season as the Nets and Sacramento Kings attempt to continue their respective surges Saturday night at Barclays...
The Washington Wizards’ abysmal season last year was overshadowed by an even worse one from the Charlotte Bobcats.
This year, they are taking center stage with only four wins so far. They have been playing without point guard John Wall, but you have to wonder how big of a difference he could possibly make.
The good news for the Wizards is that with all the bad seasons they...
