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 that produced the same result as his ill-fated trey.
Whether it be stubbornness, stupidity, or both, Teletovic attempted yet another 3-pointer on the very next possession that hit nothing but air. Coach P.J. Carlesimo finally had enough of his Bosnian sharpshooter, and sat Teletovic for the remainder of the game. The Nets would go on to beat the Pistons 93-90. Teletovic, meanwhile, was seen after the game falling out of a boat and remaining surprisingly dry.

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...

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...
Praise whatever (if any) deity you follow - Bradley Beal is ready to play again!
As reported by Gene Wang of the Washington Post, main man is set to return to the lineup tonight against the Brooklyn Nets after missing the last five games with a wrist injury that occurred back on January 18 in Denver. Although Beal initially played through the discomfort for a few games, he noticeably...
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.
Broussard wrote that a deal isn't imminent.
But this deal makes sense for the Bobcats, who desperately need frontcourt help, and Humphries is capable of averaging a double-double if given the minutes (and there...

Looking for the dunk of the Tuesday night in the NBA? We here at Outside the Boxscore have it for you to view.
Check out Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant rising high in the fourth quarter against the Brooklyn Nets and throwing down a massive dunk over Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallace:
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...
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...
