What seemed a harmless game vs. Nets seems more daunting, w/Brooklyn playing for playoff spot and Brook Lopez showing All-Star form.

Brian Mahoney

The Nets hold on to beat Knicks and stay in playoff position thanks to Lopez's effort - his second one, actually. bigstory.ap.org/article/36725b…

Nets edge Knicks for fifth straight win nwsdy.li/1EI3RrV #Nets

Gary Washburn

For those wondering, the Brooklyn #nets have a very difficult final 8 games: TOR, @ATL, POR, ATL, WSH, @MIL, CHI, ORL.

Alex Raskin

The #Nets are competing for a playoff spot against a mishmash of fading contenders. Here’s a look. on.wsj.com/1CyRLha via @WSJ

Devin Kharpertian

With the win, the Nets move into a tie with the Miami for seventh seed in the Eastern Conference. Half-game ahead of Boston.

Lenn Robbins

"Always good to beat the #Knicks. It's a good birthday present," Brook Lopez #Nets who celebrated his 26th birthday w winning basket

Eric Smith

TOR wins 113-99 over MIN. Double double for Hansbrough. 7 Raps in double figures. #raptors now 45-30. #nets up next on FRI. #RTZ

Rod Boone

Lionel Hollins: "We got the win and whether it was one point or two points, that's all that matters and we move on." #Nets

Devin Kharpertian

I don't know what the Nets are. But they won. Grades: bkga.me/1Cz6h8P

Nets, Celtics, Hornets all gain on idle Heat, who have Cavaliers next, on Thursday night. http://t.co/S0FbZuZRgR

Chris Herring

Anyway, Knicks fall, 100-98, to BKN. Fall to 14-61 on the year and still in last. Nets remain in 8th and final playoff spot for time being.

Jay King

Nets hold off the Knicks. Celtics now half-game back of both Heat and Nets for seventh and eighth place.

Steve Popper

If the Nets play the Knicks in each of their final 8 games I like their playoff chances.

Charles F. Gardner

End of three: Bulls 74, Bucks 70. Meanwhile Nets win 100-98 over Knicks and will be breathing downs Bucks backs if they lose tonight.

Lenn Robbins

On his birthday, Brook Lopez scores the winning bucket w 2 secs left in a 100-98 triumph over the #Knicks. #Nets hold 8th playoff spot.

Rod Boone

Cleanthony Early's three is an air ball and #Nets hold on to win 100-98. Win streak is at a season-best five games.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets 100 Tanking Knicks 98. Avoided what may have been worst loss in franchise history. 34-40. Five wins in a row.

Tim Bontemps

Cleanthony Early misses at the buzzer and the Nets escape with a 100-98 win that never should've been anywhere near this close.

Zach Lowe

Nets eke one out in MSG, move the Pelicans to the East, no one will notice.

Sean Highkin

#TheRivalry RT @steven_lebron: there's something hilarious about the nets bench flexing at earning a two point lead over the knicks.

Tim Bontemps

Knicks have no reason not to go for a game-winning 3-pointer here. Nets needed to hold for the final shot. We'll see if it works out.

Tim Bontemps

The Nets managed to score, but Deron Williams went far too fast. 100-98 with two seconds remaining after Lopez makes a putback.

Rod Boone

Brook Lopez tip in hands #Nets a 100-98 lead with 2 seconds left.

Alex Raskin

Tie game. #Nets call time with 14.2 left. The #Knicks are bad and the Nets should be embarrassed to be tied here.

Tom Lorenzo

Nets with a classic April Fools prank, letting the Knicks tie this game up.

Marc Berman

Cleanthony Early 3-pointer ties it at 98. Having a big fourth quarter after talking about "messing'' up #Nets playoff bid.

Mike Mazzeo

Phil Jackson may as well come on the floor and be an extra defender for the #Nets

Steve Popper

Feel like if the Nets took everyone off the court except Lopez and Deron they'd win this game by 20.

Alex Raskin

If I'm the #Knicks, I dump the ball into Jason Smith and just let him do work right now. #Nets up 98-95 w/1:18 remaining

Tim Bontemps

This, to put it mildly, would be an impossibly bad loss. Nets up 96-95 with the ball with 1:34 remaining.

Al Iannazzone

The Knicks' shot selection since cutting the Nets' lead from 16 to 1 has been awful.

Devin Kharpertian

This is the only time all game that the Nets haven’t built or rebuilt a big lead with Deron Williams in the game.

Jay King

The Nets are only up one now on the Knicks late in the fourth.

Lenn Robbins

#Pacers have won. #Celtics about to win. #Nets clinging to a 96-93 lead over #Knicks #playoffpush ..The Fasten Seat Belt Sign is ON

Mike Mazzeo

Lopez playing the role of savior for the #Nets

Brian Mahoney

Nets are on a back-to-back, and their bench seems low on fuel tonight. Knicks have cut it to 92-88 midway through 4th. Starters coming back.

Alex Raskin

Deron Williams is checking in for Jarrett Jack. #Nets up 92-88.

Tim Bontemps

Jarrett Jack is now a -18 in this game. Nets lead down to four as Lionel Hollins continues to ride a bench unit that's having no success.

Alex Raskin

Deron Williams is +22. Jarrett Jack is -18. #Nets 92 #Knicks 88

Alex Raskin

#Nets lead down to 92-88. Bench is not as good as the starters.

Lenn Robbins

After a hard @TheJoeJohnson7 foul on @Quincy Acy play gets chippy. Johnson gets last word w a 3 from op of the key for a 90-81 #Nets lead
