Rajon Rondo looks more like he’s bowling than playing basketball.
But when Darren Collison is open, you have to do whatever is necessary to get the ball out in a hurry.
NEW YORK (AP) — Bojan Bogdanovic scored a career-high 44 points and the Brooklyn Nets had a season-high scoring total in a 131-114 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.
Bogdanovic’s previous career high was 28 points against Orlando last April 15. His total was the most for a Nets player since Deron Williams scored 57 on March 4, 2012, and the most by any Nets player since the team moved to Brooklyn prior to the 2012-13 season.
Smith opened the scoring with a 3-pointer, but the Nets scored the next seven points and never gave up the lead.
Brooklyn was ahead 32-15 after the first quarter and Bogdanovic’s running layup with 2:45 left in the second quarter gave the Nets a 63-40 lead.
The 76ers managed to pull to 71-51 at halftime, but the Nets opened a game-high 24-point lead, 84-60, on Lopez’s jumper with 7:45 remaining in the third quarter.
Philadelphia got within 15 points on Hollis Thompson‘s free throw with 1:16 remaining in the quarter and trailed 100-83 heading into the fourth quarter.
The 76ers opened the final quarter on a 16-8 run and pulled to 108-99 on Thompson’s layup and foul shot with 8:04 remaining.
However, the Nets scored the next four points and never led by less than 11 the rest of the way.
Shane Larkin added 10 points for the Nets.
Thompson finished with 14 and Carl Landry had 10 points for the 76ers.

This who you want to run the country?
Comparing Donald Trump to Hitler is over the top. But that’s more a statement on Hitler’s evil than support of Trump. I’m not keen on the presidential candidate who sounds closest to Hitler.
Mostly here, I just appreciate a professional athlete with the courage to take a political stand. If nothing else, Barnes should be applauded for that.
The Grizzlies’ woes have hit absurd levels are somehow hitting even more absurd levels.
The latest player to go down is P.J. Hairston. At least Memphis will add its 18th (!) player.

Let’s breakdown the Grizzlies into three groups:
Signed after trade deadline:
Of course, that last group is smallest.
Yet, Memphis is still fifth in the Western Conference – closer to fourth than sixth (though at least four games from either). The Grizzlies need these players on 10-day contracts actually to contribute. The team’s playoff position depends on it.
