Hello Brooklyn: Nets Stay Alive, Hold Court At Barclays! [Video]

Brook Lopez Gerald Wallace

Brook Lopez gives teammate Gerald Wallace a pound during Monday night’s game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

“We have to stay aggressive,” said Gerald Wallace, who finished with 12 points — including five in a quick burst with about two minutes remaining that sealed the win. “Right now, it’s win or go home. Like the coaches say, we’re in an NCAA Tournament right now, so every game counts, every possession counts.

“We just have to come out and play hard. … I don’t think any of the guys are ready to go home yet.” – nypost

D-Will Jimmy Butler

Deron Williams drives past Jimmy Butler during Monday night’s game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

During the halftime telecast of Game 4, a reporter from the Chicago Sun-Times said the Bulls “feel privately and have said, ‘This team is gutless, this team is heartless,’ and they think they can expose the Nets when the game gets close in the fourth quarter.”

P.J. Carlesimo, surviving another day as interim coach, used the interview as motivation – although it wasn’t received that way.

“We didn’t need (to watch that video),” said an upbeat Deron Williams, who finished with 23 points and 10 assists. “P.J. wanted us to watch it, and we were sitting in there after it was over like, ‘That’s it?’ What are we supposed to do now, like,’ Ahhhh we’re mad!’

“That stuff doesn’t mean anything. We wanted to win the game for us and for our fans and for a chance to extend our season. We didn’t want to go fishing. We didn’t want to be on TNT with the hats on, and (Charles Barkley) talking about it.” – nydailynews

ello Brooklyn and the Hova crew took it to the Chicago Bulls, 110-91 last night to stay alive behind (3-2) in the series, and protect home court, the Brooklyn Barclays! The sold-out crowd of 17,732 was pleased to see that the Nets weren’t a wash, even if they get taken out in six or seven! Brook Lopez (28 points, 10 boards) and D-Will (23, 10 boards) teamed up with four other players in double-digits to send the series to Game 6 back at the United Center in Chicago, IL on Thursday, May 2! Former Knick ‘Lil’ Nate Robinson, who led the Bulls on the big rally in Game 4, was somewhat silenced this time around and finished with a team-high 20 points and eight assists! Check out the highlight reel below!
