If we play our style of basketball… if we play hard how we know how to play with a very tough defense, you have to start there, with defense, play for each other, share the ball with each other… I believe there isn’t a team in the NBA that can stop us.
So, Mason Plumlee sealed a win for the Nets tonight by blocking a dunk attempt by LeBron James. (Yeah, you read that right.)
Final: Brooklyn 88, Miami 87
THE NETS HAVE SWEPT THE MIAMI HEAT 4-0 THIS SEASON (6-0 WITH PRESEASON) WITH A STUNNING BLOCK BY MASON PLUMLEE ON LEBRON JAMES TO END A GREAT GAME!
Next up, the Orlando Magic tomorrow night.
Final: Brooklyn 116, Detroit 104
The Nets extend their home winning streak to 15 wins, a franchise best record, and the best home win streak in the NBA this season! The Nets pulled out an incredible team effort, with Livingston leading the team with 23 points, Mirza with 20, and Pierce with 17. Next up, the Nets travel tomorrow night to Philadelphia to end the season series with the Sixers.

Hours after coach Jason Kidd was awarded Eastern Conference Coach of the Month honors for the second time this year, the Nets added onto their impressive 30-12 turnaround this season and clinched a playoff berth. Brooklyn won their 14th straight game at home, shutting down the Rockets on Joe Johnson’s 32 points and walking off the court to “Brooklyn” chants from the sellout crowd.
This win puts Nets 1.5 games behind the third seed and the top of the Atlantic Division ahead of tomorrow nights clash in Manhattan.
