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 to be tough for Teletovic to fight for more playing time until he proves he can at least hit the rim with his shots.

A league source has confirmed a report that the Nets and Bobcats have had preliminary talks about sending power forward Kris Humphries to Charlotte for guard Ben Gordon.
While the deal isn't etched in stone, a change would provide big ups for each team.
The Feb. 21 trade deadline is less than two weeks away but Humphries claims he's not distracted by all the talk.
Kris Humphries and Ben Gordon could be switching places. The Brooklyn Nets and Charlotte Bobcats are discussing a swap, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard.

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...
