Streaking Cavs head to Brooklyn, where Nets have floundered

If the Brooklyn Nets squeak into the playoffs, they'll likely have done it with solid play at home down the stretch, and they'll almost certainly be rewarded with a handful of road games in Atlanta or Cleveland.

Hornets falter at home, lose to Nets 91-88

The Charlotte Hornets played their first home game since a five-game road trip on Wednesday at Time Warner Cable Arena. It wasn’t pretty. Though the Hornets were very much in the game until the end, and held the lead for a large portion, they didn’t seem to be doing much of anything well.

Mr. and Mrs. Lopez are going to have to separate their sons before this gets ugly. Robin Lopez has been in the midst of an everlasting war against NBA mascots for a couple years now.
