HIGHLIGHT: Fearza Unleashed

The Brooklyn Nets inserted Mirza Teletovic into the starting lineup following the news that Brook Lopez will miss the rest of the season with a broken foot, and it paid dividends as early as the first quarter. Teletovic snuck backdoor on a fast-break and threw down an alley-oop from Deron Williams, putting the Nets up 8-2 in the first two minutes of the game.

If Teletovic can hit shots, run the floor, and play passable defense, he’s got a role with the starting lineup.
