I apologize for the thumbnail and assure you I am not selling you carpet cleaner

Mike Mazzeo

Congratulations to @JonScher, @GregNewmanESPN and the rest of the ESPN.com re-design crew on the new launch. Looks great!

Devin Kharpertian

I’ve seen every vine of this game but there was nothing more unlikely than that Big Baby spin move

Stefan Bondy

Sign me up for a Warriors-Cavs final. Please.

Remember when everyone wasn't sure about Steph Curry's handle and if he could play point guard in the NBA? #lightyearsago

Jack on #NYK wanting to "mess up" #Nets playoff hopes: 'It's cool. ... We don't need any added motivation' espn.go.com/blog/brooklyn-…

Someone set that Chris Paul vine to a James Brown drum break

Devin Kharpertian

The weirdest part about tonight: why is Roy Hibbert shooting crunch-time three-pointers? bkga.me/1HifvYh

Tim Bontemps

Sixth place is extremely unlikely, too. Bucks are almost certain to hold tiebreak for better conf. record, have games left vs ORL, PHI, NYK.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets have bested three tankers during this 8-2 stretch. Can complete tanking sweep with #NYK victory.

Tim Bontemps

Exactly the kind of game that has tripped this team up all season. Can't afford to have it happen this time. twitter.com/jaymancap71/st…

Tim Bontemps

It's not like the Nets have their choice of opponent -- they are a game out of 10th. I'm pretty sure they'll be happy to play anyone.

Tim Bontemps

People worrying about who the Nets might play in the playoffs: probably smarter to worry about actually getting in the playoffs instead.

Tim Bontemps

Incredibly, the Nets can move into a tie for seventh with a win tomorrow -- and into seventh with a win and a Miami loss to Cleveland Thurs.

Devin Kharpertian

The Nets are a half-game behind the Heat for the seventh seed. Nets would tie if they beat Knicks tomorrow.

Andrew Keh

"We have a tough one tomorrow on the road against the Knicks," Alan Anderson said about a game in Manhattan against the league's worst team.

Joe Johnson: "Hopefully we can go to Manhattan and get ourselves a win."

Mike Mazzeo

Brook wants a win and Alan to stop yelling Sparta for his birthday tomorrow #Nets

Tim Bontemps

The Nets have picked a good time to have their best stretch of the season: nyp.st/1Dq24WU

Tim Bontemps

Hollins credits Deron Williams play in first quarter as a big reason for the impressive start for the Nets.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets only had seven turnovers on the night, shot 50% from the field and from 3.

Mike Mazzeo

Next up for the #Nets are the 60-loss Knicks that hope to mess up their playoff hopes. Get excited.

Brett Yormack

Great win tonight . Tomorrow at msg. http://t.co/WMj9WEEYg1

Tim Bontemps

Nets have their first four-game winning streak. Win 111-106 over the Pacers, pick up the tie-break & move back into sole possession of 8th.

Rod Boone

Final: #Nets 111, #Pacers 106: #Nets have their first 4-game win streak of the season and are in 8th place in the East all by themselves.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets 111 Paul George-less Pacers 106. They've done it. A four-game winning streak. Finally. 34-40. Back in eighth. Brook 24/11. Joe 21.

Lenn Robbins

The #Nets forced Roy Hibbert to attempt just his 2nd 3 of the season. He's 0-for-2 and 6-for-22 for his career. #Defense.

Devin Kharpertian

Today I learned Joe Johnson is a better three-point shooter than Roy Hibbert.

Mike Mazzeo

Joe closes. Those Pacers sets were ... well ... yeah.

Tim Bontemps

Unconventional, but Nets will take it. An airball 3 by Roy Hibbert is followed by a drained one by Joe Johnson. 108-100 Nets. 15.4 left.

Rod Boone

Joe Johnson Time: Has scored last 5 points to put #Nets ahead 108-100. #Pacers call timeout with 15.4 left

Devin Kharpertian

ROY HIBBERT CRUNCH TIME MISSED THREE? ROY HIBBERT CRUNCH TIME MISSED THREE.

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams replaces Alan Anderson, who has 20 points.

Stefan Bondy

Really bad decision from Jarrett Jack. Fourteen seconds left on the shot clock when he pulled up for jumper, committed foul. Lead down to 3.

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams coming back in for Jarrett Jack.

Mike Mazzeo

Here we go ... and here comes Deron.

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams should be coming back in for Jarrett Jack here. Needs to be on the floor.

Tim Bontemps

Thanks to @Chris Herring – Frank Vogel now has 11 technicals, tops among NBA coaches. Derek Fisher is second with 10.

Tim Bontemps

That is the 10th technical foul on Vogel this season, I believe. Tops among NBA head coaches. Bad time to get one.

Devin Kharpertian

Jarrett Jack has six shot attempts in the fourth quarter. Brook Lopez has zero.

Mike Mazzeo

Vogel I think leads the NBA in techs.

Tim Bontemps

Frank Vogel picks up a bad technical with 3:24 to go. Hasn't been happy with a lot of calls tonight. Technical FT makes it 101-95 Nets.

Rod Boone

Wow. Tech on Frank Vogel. #Pacers are down 100-95 with 3:24 left.

Devin Kharpertian

Alan Anderson has been sneakily good for the last 6-7 games.

Devin Kharpertian

Fixed RT @Tim Bontemps: The Brook Lopez face is hilarious every single time I see it.

Tim Bontemps

The Brook Lopez "I didn't foul him" face is hilarious every single time I see it.

Mike Mazzeo

Pacers 3-for-11 from the field in the fourth. #Nets up 10. Lopez 24/10.

Devin Kharpertian

Another double-double for Brook Lopez. 24 points, 10 boards.

Lenn Robbins

I visited with @rileywilliamsMD today & he said how humbled he was that @Paul George was going to present him w a #USABasketball jersey #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

How long can Vogel afford to go without Hill? Halfcourt O needs some help.

Devin Kharpertian

That’s why Jarrett Jack is so frustrating. Because he’ll make a perfect pass in the paint like that. And it’ll follow 3 bad shots

Devin Kharpertian

Can an NBA team pay the luxury tax by blowing leads against non-taxpaying teams? Asking for a friend.

Rod Boone

This cat who looks like a fake Ghostface Killah just got booed off the floor after all he could hit in shooting contest was a layup.

Mike Mazzeo

The Nets asked a fan to hit four shots for a two-year car lease. That’s weak.

Tim Bontemps

Markel Brown was limping coming up the court after that last miss.

Devin Kharpertian

Someone turned the volume on the rim mic up to 100. You can hear David West scream “ANDONE” like he’s in your ear.

Devin Kharpertian

So… http://t.co/kOW5famn6c

Mike Mazzeo

Last 10:40 of the second quarter, #Nets outscored 36-20. Gave up 73.7 percent shooting. Brook has 20 points at half.

Devin Kharpertian

Totally normal http://t.co/nc7YFfghm5

Tim Bontemps

Nets lead 57-54 at half. Brook Lopez has 20 points. Nets once led by 19, gave it all back in second quarter.

Rod Boone

Halftime: #Nets 57, #Pacers 54: About as crazy a half as you are going to see.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets shooting themselves in the foot. Post-heavy, iso-heavy, passive PNR’s. Totally different from the first quarter.

Rod Boone

#Pacers lead 52-50. #Nets let them get back in it and take control. Unbelievable.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets led 33-15 after one quarter. Now trail 52-50.

Mike Mazzeo

Give Brook the ball

Stefan Bondy

It's time to do away with the sleeved jerseys. Nobody is buying them.

Rod Boone

#Nets 19-point lead is down to a measly point.

Devin Kharpertian

Bojan Bogdanovic goaltends C.J. Watson. Even he won’t let him lay it in.

Rod Boone

Frank Vogel is happy, Lionel Hollins is ticked. #Pacers are on a 20-6 run and trail now 45-40.

Devin Kharpertian

C.J. Watson just crossed over Deron Williams and buried a 3.

Mike Mazzeo

Well it was a 19-point #Nets lead. But then the second unit did their thing.

Stefan Bondy

Deron Williams has been very good lately.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets spent the whole first quarter PNR’ing with Brook to get him layups and dunks. Jack does it and pulls a contested baseline 17-footer.

Mike Mazzeo

I dunno how Vogel has coached this Pacers team to this many wins. There's just no scoring.

Devin Kharpertian

GIF: Frank Vogel stares into the eyes of the devil bkga.me/1BNb4Rr

Rod Boone

#Nets are shooting 62.5 percent, lead #Pacers 39-20.

Tim Bontemps

Nets open the second with Jack, Bogdanovic, Anderson, Young and Plumlee.

Stefan Bondy

Nets landed haymaker in that first quarter. Lead the Pacers, 33-15.

Devin Kharpertian

Strong first quarter by the Nets: not hitting tough shots, but creating easy ones, and limiting Pacers easy shots on the other side.

Rod Boone

End of 1st Q: #Nets 33, #Pacers 15: Brook has 14 points (6 for 10 from field) and Deron has 8 points, 5 assists.

Tim Bontemps

Nets end the quarter with a 33-8 run, go into the break leading 33-15. One of their best quarters of the entire season.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets lead 33-15 after one quarter. Lopez with 14 points, Williams with 8, 5 assists, 2 steals.

Mike Mazzeo

A 25-point first quarter swing has the #Nets up 33-18. Lopez 14 points. Williams 8 points, 5 assists.

Rod Boone

#Nets are on a 33-8 run. This is incredible. They were down 7-0.

Devin Kharpertian

The Nets look so good right now. Also, the Pacers look like there having difficulty running a set.

Tim Bontemps

The Pacers might want to try to guard Brook Lopez at the rim. Might be a good idea. Nets feasting at the rim, now lead 26-15.

Devin Kharpertian

Helps, not confirms. RT @nick6489: @Devin Kharpertian But Hibbert is bigger?

Rod Boone

Brook doing an excellent job of moving without the ball and teammates are finding him. Has 12 of #Nets 26 points. They lead by 11.

Devin Kharpertian

This is gonna sound crazy, but: Brook Lopez is huge and that helps with basketballing.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron and Brook running that two-man game with ease.

Tim Bontemps

Nets have responded to giving up the first seven points of the game with a 22-6 run, lead 22-13 late in the first.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets largely keeping it simple: getting the ball inside, drawing attention, kicking out for threes. After trailing 7-0, lead 13-10.

Rod Boone

C.J. Miles is questionable to return due to a sprained right ankle.
