Almost Playoff Time: Bid And Seeding Scenarios For The Regular Season’s Finale

The doldrums of March and early April have passed, and the playoffs are merely five days away. Despite over five months and 80 games of competition, though, the field is far from set – and championship implications loom as a result of the regular season's last three days.

AWFUL OFFICIATING

Referees Inexplicably Award Damian Lillard Three Points For A 20-Foot Jumper

The Brooklyn Nets jumped on the short-handed Portland Trail Blazers in the second quarter of Monday's lone NBA outing and never looked back, winning the Lopez Brothers battle by a comfortable 106-94 margin.

BROOK LOPEZ

Oh, Brother! Robin Lopez Swats Twin Brother Brook’s Layup Out Of Bounds

The only player who can stop two-time reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week Brook Lopez? Just a slightly different version of himself, naturally.

JAMES HARDEN

NBA Names Brook Lopez And James Harden Conference Players Of The Week

The NBA's Players of the Week honors go to the Brooklyn Nets' Brook Lopez and the Houston Rockets' James Harden.

Brook Lopez Tips In The Game-Winner Against The Knicks at MSG

With time winding down and the game tied at 98, Brook Lopez gets a game-winning put-back off a miss by Deron Williams to sink the Knicks.

A Nets Heckler Claims ‘Crybaby’ LeBron James Asked Security To Remove Him

| 10 Comments

Hecklers are something we will never understand. Why a fan would pay hard-earned money for a great seat just so he or she could berate opposing players and act as a wild malcontent is absolutely beyond us. Is it really that fun to act like an a**hole?

Brook Lopez Isn’t Just Going To Disney World, He’s Going To Live There

Brook Lopez is about to live every child's dream: living in Disney World

JARRETT JACK

Isaiah Canaan’s Simple Hesitation Move Nearly Puts Jarrett Jack On His Ass

Jarrett Jack isn't a good defender. We knew that even before Isaiah Canaan nearly put the Brooklyn Nets point guard on his ass with a simple hesitation move, but the video above just drives home that obvious point.

ANTHONY DAVIS

This Soaring Alley-Oop Jam By Anthony Davis Makes The Basket Seem Eight-Feet Tall

It's weird that no one at Barclays Center noticed the New Orleans Pelicans lowering their basket to eight feet at halftime. You'd at least think the Brooklyn Nets would realize it after Anthony Davis touched the sky on this alley-oop, right?

BROOK LOPEZ

Brook Lopez Barely Gets Off The Ground For Two-Handed Dunk Past Anthony Davis

Brook Lopez isn't the most explosive big man, but there's something to be said for coordination and fluidity making up for a lack of leaping ability and quick-twitch athleticism. How many seven-foot, 275-pound centers can make this play, for instance?

The best athletes see plays happening before they materialize and act accordingly.

Markel Brown

Nets’ Markel Brown Initiates Lift-Off For Hammer Dunk Past Alex Len

The Brooklyn Nets are in the thick of a race for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, but it's still not exactly exciting. Even if Lionel Hollins' team manages to snag the eight seed, it's foregone conclusion that they'll get steamrolled in the first round by the Atlanta Hawks. That's not exactly fun for anybody in Brooklyn.

Steph Curry’s Filthy Hesitation Crossover Fools Two Nets Defenders And Parts Lane For Layup

| 4 Comments

The comeback bid of Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors came up just short on Monday night following Jarrett Jack's game-winning pull-up, but was still hardly without its highlights. This one's our favorite.

ANDREW BOGUT

Andrew Bogut Cuts Down The Lane For Soaring Power Dunk Past Mason Plumlee

It wasn't long ago that Andrew Bogut was one of the best two-way big men in basketball. But a nasty elbow injury and nagging knee problems have sapped the former number one overall pick of the skill and athleticism that made him such a rare force for the Milwaukee Bucks. Now entrenched Golden State Warriors' defensive anchor, Bogut mostly makes hay on that side of the ball while sprinkling in a dash of playmaking dynamism.

DIRK NOWITZKI

Watch Spry Dirk Nowitzki Sprint Floor In Transition And Throw Down (Somewhat) Powerful Dunk

This is the fastest we've seen Dirk Nowitzki run since 2010-2011. It's only right that the not so fleet-footed 37 year-old's obvious effort paid off with one of his most powerful dunks in years.
