EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- They delivered the first blow Friday night, pounding the Bulls in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series, but the Nets weren't about to pat themselves on the back Sunday.

In their minds, not only did they simply do what they were supposed to do, given they have homecourt advantage. But they're awaiting Chicago's expected bounce back in Monday's Game...

It’s been quite a ride for Kris Humphries these last few months.

After inking that two-year, $24-million pact in the offseason, he began the season as a starter. Then, Avery Johnson benched him in one of his final rotational decisions before Mikhail Prokhorov fired him two days after Christmas.

P.J. Carlesimo gave him another look, only to elect in early March to drop him from the rotation...

INDIANAPOLIS -- When the Nets square off against the Pacers Friday night, P.J. Carlesimo is expecting a tense atmosphere that should rival what they’ll see in a little over a week.

“They still have a chance to catch New York,” the interim coach said prior to the Nets shootaround at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. “So yeah, I think it will be very much like a playoff game.”

With the Nets’ crosstown...

Deron Williams makes it rather easy to get a good read on his emotions.

Whether it's by body language, facial expressions, hand gestures or the old fashioned way -- verbally -- the Nets point guard is going to offer some pretty good insight on how he's feeling at that particular moment.

"It's funny," interim coach P.J Carlesimo said Friday on ESPNNY 98.7FM's "Stephen A....

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- When Reggie Evans was first introduced to the media following his sign-and-trade with the Clippers, he left no bones about his intentions on the offensive end.

“I ain’t trying to score,” he said in July.

But now, Evans is understanding that line of thought may have to change, particularly with him in the starting lineup. Although he viewed things in a different...

NEW ORLEANS -- Joe Johnson sat in front of his locker inside New Orleans Arena before the Nets were about to take the court for Tuesday’s shootaround, his left foot propped up on a pile of towels.

Johnson’s sore heel is feeling better, but he’s still unsure if he’ll be able to go Tuesday night. After missing the Nets’ last two games, he’s officially listed as a game-time decision, which is...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Keith Bogans didn't forget.

The Spurs really put it on the Nets when these teams met New Year's Eve in San Antonio, clobbering them 104-73 thanks to a second-half dismantling. So when the Nets meet the Spurs in Brooklyn Sunday night, tipping off the first of their last three games prior to next weekend's All-Star festivities, Bogans wants some revenge.

"These...

SAN ANTONIO -- The Nets are laying off that snooze button.

Since Avery Johnson's dismissal, albeit coming in games against the Bobcats and Cavaliers, there appears to be a new sense of purpose. They're 2-0 under interim coach P.J. Carlesimo, a mark they'll look to improve on Monday night when they meet the Spurs here deep in the heart of Texas.

"The Avery thing was a big wake up...
