WASHINGTON -- Joe 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 Brooklyn Nets survived for a wild 115-113 win over the Washington Wizards 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). Brooklyn trailed after each of the first three quarters, but held leads with less than four seconds in both regulation and overtime only to see the Wizards (4-27), owners of the NBA's worst record, twice comeup clutch. Nene's running hook with 0.8 left in regulation forced the first overtime and Beal's buzzer-beating 3-pointer sent the game into a second extra session. Beal's heroics came after the Nets pulled ahead 104-101 with 3.4...

Kris Humphries of the Brooklyn Nets has been the ire of a ridiculous number of jokes following his short lived “relationship” with Kim Kardashian. It seems that one female Thunder fan thought that maybe she would check out what Kim thought was so great about Kris Humphries, and reached out to touch him as he left the court. She immediately regretted the decision and was as...

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...
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...
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...
So most people hate Kris Humphries now right?? I know I do. The big question is why is this lady Thunder's fan touching him on his arm on his way to the locker room? And how does she not realize he's going to be sweating like a race horse after playing a full game of basketball? These fans should be flicking him off if anything. He's on the opposing team that...
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...
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...
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...
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.
