49-33: Nets 103, Pistons 99 (Game Grades)


Deron Williams POINT GUARD

He barely played and did nothing of consequence after the first quarter. Would be silly to grade him fairly. Give him an A+ for not wearing that suit again.

Kris Humphries POWER FORWARD

Shot 5-6 and had a nice block.

Brook Lopez CENTER

Nearly put up a double-double (20 points, 9 rebounds) in about 20 minutes.

Andray Blatche POWER FORWARD

Classically frustratingly brilliant and hit a three-pointer, so there’s that. On the plus side, we now have the greatest Blatcheism ever: “Blatche don’t kill my vibe.”


Had yet another double-digit rebounding game, even in limited time. Crazy fact: In his last 20 games, he had more rebounds than Gerald Wallace all season.

Jerry Stackhouse SHOOTING GUARD

In perhaps Jerry Stackhouse’s final regular season game, Stackhouse struggled from the field until hitting two three-pointers in the fourth quarter, the second a gorgeous shot over the outstretched arms of Jonas Jerebko. I’m not sure what the future holds for Stack, but regardless, it was a pleasure watching the Immortal Jerry Stackhouse AKA Inventor of Palindromes AKA IDGAS AKA The Ophiotaurus Slayer AKA Trey Stacks AKA The iPhone 6 AKA The Only Man David Stern Fears in this act of his career. Keep on, Jerry Stackhouse.

Mirza Teletovic POWER FORWARD

Hit two threes in the second half, so that was fun.
