With 4 min to go, 4th qtr scoring: Dallas 25, Miami 2.
Charlie 3 GOAT
Great effort by the Nets, in particular Jarrett Jack, who had 35/8/13. But given stretch of games they are in, desperately needed this one.

Eric Gordon revenge game.
I beg your pardon, 60-59 was the final. Either way, Vegas knows
Nets lose 127-122 to the Raptors. Most painful loss of the year for them. They had this one in their hands late, and couldn't pull it out.
That play was beautiful.
This is the best I've seen Eric Gordon look in a long time...
Clippers down 6 after Jamal Crawford gets beat backdoor -- seemed like some confusion about if/when help would come. 104-98 w/ 1:30 left
Stevens on Smart-Turner-Crowder defensive combo against Harden: "I thought those guys guarded him as well as anybody I've seen guard him."
"Let's Go Raptors!" chant here in Brooklyn, and players for the Raptors are amped. They don't care about beating the Nets, though.
"Let's go Raptors" chant breaks out as Lowry ices it from the FT line
Nets come back down 4. Miss. Raps rebound. Lowry 1-2 ft. TOR up 5 with 6.6 to go.
Dante Cunningham dunk gives Pelicans 104-98 lead over Clippers with 1:30 left and that might be all she wrote.

Robinson did not have a good shooting night, but those final 4:00 were all that mattered. Monmouth in a rock fight
GET LOUD, SMOOTHIE KING CENTER
If the Nets lose this game it's because they couldn't secure a defensive rebound in either the last three minutes of regulation or overtime.
Mavs are so dangerous offensively. Spread a 7-point lead to 15 so fast.
Nets deny DeRozan at the rim, Amir cleans up and puts the Raps back up by 2. Nets players/coaches wanted a travel on Amir, no dice.
Final: Monmouth 61, Fairfield 59. Justin Robinson 8-for-8 at the line over the final 4:00 to move MU to 8-3, remaining in a tie for second
Charlie V came to play. Another 3.
Bosh, Cole, Chalmers tonight: 9-of-38.

More Cardiac Clippers?
Can Clippers close for 4th game in a row? Clippers have comeback in each of last three wins

Unbelievable. That is the fourth and-one flip that has somehow gone in for the Raptors in this game.
