Matchup to Watch

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist vs. Joe Johnson: With the injuries the Nets have experienced, they need Johnson to come forward as a first scoring option. He’s been strong in crunch time. Kidd-Gilchrist, by his own description, is the Bobcats’ “middle linebacker.”


Brook Lopez Kevin Garnett Paul Pierce

Mason Plumlee


Did you know?

You don’t want the ball in Johnson’s hands in the last minute of a tight game. He’s made 13 of 16 shots from the field as a Net in situations where Brooklyn is either tied or trails by three or fewer points..
