Let's make this clear: Reggie Evans got hit in the mouth, lost a tooth, kept going for the rebound, played until a dead ball, then walked off the court to get the blood cleaned off so he could keep playing. Reggie Evans is tougher than you.
My favorite part of the video: the reactions from YES announcers Ian Eagle and Jim Spanarkel when Evans takes the tooth out and puts it right in front of them.
Evans finished the 105-96 Brooklyn Nets victory with 14 points and 20 rebounds. It was his 9th 20-rebound game, which leads the league. After the game, he put a gold-plated grill into his mouth and walked out without speaking to reporters.
Going to go "The Difference" style for tonight's recap -- one bullet point for each point in the margin of victory -- because if you think this game deserves a real recap, you may not have been watching:... MORE →

Nets host Bobcats tonight. Not exactly an exciting matchup compared to #FinalFour action.

Reggie Evans isn't known for his dunks, but this is his third one in about a week, and it came with Josh McRoberts trying to contest him. Who is this rebounding maniac?
The 43-32 Brooklyn Nets play the 18-58 Charlotte Bobcats in what will be another important game for Brooklyn in terms of playoff seeding. Therefore, you know what that means: another chance to play The BK Game Streak and win a $200 Amazon Gift Card!
The game is as simple as it sounds:
1. The contest relies on a standard betting line for each game. (Note: you must be logged into Facebook to play.) To make your prediction, select YES or NO to agree or disagree. For example: today's line is "Deron Williams & Brook Lopez will combine to score 65 or more points." If you think that Deron Williams and Brook Lopez will combine to score 65 or more points, select "YES." If you think that Deron Williams and Brook Lopez will combine to score less than 65 points, select "NO."
For the record: Deron Williams and Brook Lopez's combined points per game averages this season is 37.7 PPG. This season, Deron Williams has scored 30 or more points six times with his season high being a 42 point effort against the Washington Wizards in which he hit 11 of 16 threes. Brook Lopez has scored 30 or more points in three games this season with his season high being a 38 point effort against Dallas just a few weeks ago. In that contest against Dallas, Williams and Lopez combined to score 69 points: the only time this season they have combined for 65 or more points.
2. String together wins and try to get the longest streak of correct predictions before the end of the NBA regular season. Follow game results on the leaderboard on the right sidebar.
At the end of the season, we'll award three prizes to the players with the best three streaks: The Gold Net Trophy (longest streak) and a $200 Amazon Gift Card will be awarded to first place, the Silver Net Trophy (second-longest streak) and a $50 Amazon Gift Card to second place, and the Bronze Net Trophy (third-longest streak) $25 Amazon Gift Card and a Bronze Net Trophy to third place.

Brooklyn Nets forward Gerald Wallace seems to have a knack for games like this: after blocking three dunks in one game against the Chicago Bulls in December, Wallace bested that mark Wednesday night, blocking a season-high five shots against the Charlotte Bobcats -- three layups, a dunk, and what appeared to be a post-up attempt by Bobcats forward Josh McRoberts. Watch:
lmao the first 35 seconds of the yes network intro felt really trippy

The 34-26, somewhat sliding Brooklyn Nets travel to Charlotte tonight to take on the 13-47 Charlotte Bobcats, proprietors of the worst record in the NBA. These teams were connected near the trade deadline, after a report that the Bobcats were interested in Nets forward Kris Humphries in exchange for guard Ben Gordon, but a deal never went down, and both players remained with their respective teams. Here's three things to watch in tonight's game.... MORE →
