The Nets led by as many as 33 points before settling on a 127-110 victory over the Hawks in London on Thursday, and in a game that lopsided, there were more than enough highlights to choose from.
We’re going with this high-IQ play from Andrei Kirilenko, who backs down his initial defender in the post, draws the double-team, and then finds Kevin Garnett for the slam dunk finish.
Kirilenko has been stellar off the bench for the Nets since returning to the lineup from injury — not necessarily from a numbers standpoint, but his overall energy and disruptive presence on defense has helped Brooklyn to a 6-2 record over the team’s last eight games.

Against the Pacers last night, James Ennis missed all three of his 3-point attempts… that counted. And he makes this one after fouling out?
Mike Conley more than picked up the slack to lead the Grizzlies to victory.
The Pelicans are effectively out of the playoff race, but Dante Cunningham and Anthony Davis are still competing — even if it looks a little silly.
That tone and a big game from DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 16 rebounds, six assists) led to a 121-118 win over the Mavericks.
Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.
With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.
Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.
After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
