Lionel Hollins played Earl Clark because he told media he wasn't scared to pregame. "It's like my grandmother said: a scared man can't win."
One of the best wins of the season. But impossible to know what it means because they've done this before.
Nets win 106-98 in what was one of the strangest games I've ever seen. Massive win for the Nets to keep pace with Boston.
The Nets are undefeated in the Earl Clark era
The Nets entered the night 12-20 at home on the season. So, they decided to beat the Cavs at home by 8 points. http://t.co/UUyD2n69QY
Whammy walked over to press row, touched my shoulder, and said, "You don't mess with the Whammy."
The Nets have turned the corner so many times they’re like one of those kids spinning in a circle with their head on a bat
Scratch that – Nets are up 10. Even beyond the result, this has been one of the strangest games of the entire season.
Cleveland's Big Three is 23-for-46. The rest? 13-for-33. Nets up 8.
Joe Johnson with a dagger. Nets about to beat LeBron James and the Cavs at Barclays Center.
Big three there by Jojan Joejohnsonvic.
That stack play the Celtics ran would make a lot of sense for the Cavaliers here. Good thing David Blatt doesn’t have Twitter.
The Nets are getting a loooot of calls here. Foul disparity not special though, 16 Cavs fouls vs. 15 for Nets.
Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson are iso-ing the Cavs to death, and the Nets are managing to maintain their lead because of it.
Cavaliers running a spread offense with Kevin Love at the 5. Nets keep Lopez in, looking at inside mismatch.
LeBron James just doesn't seem happy today. Has been frustrated by one thing after another throughout this game.
LeBron James was irate about that last basket for the Nets. Slammed the ball to the ground as David Blatt called timeout. Nets up 92-87.
The Cavaliers have missed an uncharacteristic number of layups.
The Nets could very possibly live to regret those two missed opportunities to extend the lead. Cavs to shoot FTs down 86-81 w/ 8:29 left.
Plumlee made a nice block in recovery there but LBJ-Thompson is getting roll after roll to the basket.
Jarrett Jack legit has his best games against teams he’s left.
Deron Williams through 3 quarters: 5 points, 5 assists, 5 rebounds, 5 turnovers.
79-79 as Nets-Cavaliers heads into the fourth quarter. Joe Johnson has tied his Nets career high with 9 assists.
Earl Clark providing a big boost.
Three MLS players were shown on the jumbotron and Barclays somehow got quieter than it was just before they were shown
Earl Clark drains a 3. Looking good so far. Even just took a heat check fast break three that bounced off the rim.
Earl Clark Heat Check time in Nets-Cavaliers, which is a sentence I never expected to say.
Earl Clark with a heat-check. This game has been all kinds of weird.
Five turnovers for Deron tonight. Brook has four himself.
In Blatt's defense, at least a couple of them were 50-50 calls that went against his team.
David Blatt just got T'd up for going to referee Pat Fraher and saying "four times!" - referring to the four charges Cavs have been hit with
David Blatt hit with a technical foul for arguing with referees. Cavs have been called for many an offensive foul tonight.
I don't know about that call. Blatt seemingly rightfully upset. Gets T'd up.
Lionel Hollins was going to take out Earl Clark, but after Clark made a jumper and saved a loose ball Hollins changed his mind.
Earl Clark buries his first shot.
LeBron measured that all the way. Had Joe set in his sights and got one of his trademark blocks on a fast break.
LeBron with the block of the night

March 27, 2015, the day Mr Whammy literally got incensed and kept ethering the whole Cavaliers team
Bear in mind Whammy's whole shtick is not knowing who opposing players are
Mr. Whammy claims LeBron is the only player who asks arena security to move him from his usual spot under the basket.
Mr. Whammy said the same thing would happen when LeBron played in Miami, and he's the only players who has made him move.
Mr. Whammy, who was not allowed to take his usual spot under the basket during free throws in 1st half, says it was because of LeBron James.
Nets lead 57-56 at half. Joe Johnson 12p 7a; Bojan Bogdanovic, Alan Anderson 11 p; Brook Lopez 10 p; LeBron James 16p; Kyrie Irving 10p.
Nets lead 57-56 at the half. Maybe Joe Johnson’s best all-around half since taking over vs. Detroit early in the season.
Whammy just called LeBron "a bum." Never heard him this angry before.
Mr. Whammy not happy with LeBron: "You're a crybaby," he says.
This is the angriest I've ever seen Mr. Whammy.
It feels like the Cavaliers are in complete cruise control, yet are only trailing 52-48. Nets have had a lot of careless turnovers.
Joe Johnson just successfully defended a Kevin Love post-up. Been that kind of game so far for the Nets, who lead 50-48.
Nets have played fantastic basketball. The Cavaliers are fantastic at basketball. This is an oddly good game.
Joe has 10 points and 5 assists. Been a minute since he's played this well.
Jarrett Jack has made 387 consecutive mid-range jumpers against the Cavaliers.
Two charges on LeBron James in the first half of this game. Don't see that very often.
Alan Anderson draws the charge on LeBron, the second one the Nets have collected against him tonight.
This is the best Joe Johnson has looked in weeks.
Nets open the second with Jarrett Jack, Joe Johnson, Bojan Bogdanovic, Alan Anderson and Mason Plumlee.
