INDIANAPOLIS -- Call it a weird phenomenon.

Seems like as soon as the Nets get one of their key injured players going again, someone else gets hurt. That was the case again Wednesday night in Boston, when Gerald Wallace went down in the second quarter.

The veteran small forward, who has been struggling mightily offensively since the All-Star break, suffered a left heel contusion and...

For one night at least, the Nets could’ve said they owned the big bad city. They took down the Knicks, keeping their Manhattan neighbors from turning the Barclays Center into Madison Square Garden East.

Avery: Win over Celtics shows Nets' new spirit

BOSTON – So what if Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo didn't exactly appear to be giving it their all, knowing the Nets were going to be playing this one without their starting five.

Tuesday night's 97-96 preseason victory over the Celtics at TD Garden in come-from-behind fashion still left an impression on Avery Johnson. The Nets outscored the Celtics' reserves 23-13 in the final...

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Players are rarely thrilled to get their scrimmage on. Simulating game action is never as fun as the real thing.

But for the Nets, it's time to gauge their progress after three days of the training camp grind. Joe Johnson, for one, seems excited to hit the court here at the PNY Center Friday evening in the Nets' Black & White scrimmage.
