Wednesday at Barclays Center, the Brooklyn Nets were defeated by the Lakers, 97-94, in the second half of a road-home back-to-back. The Nets, who trailed by as many as 27 points in the first half, recovered to tie the game at 92 behind a strong bench effort from Mirza Teletovic, Mason Plumlee and Alan Anderson.

Teletovic, who scored 14 of his 17 career-high points (4-8 FGs) in the second half, tied the game with a split of free throws 4 minutes from the finish. Rookie backup Plumlee finished with 6 points, 4 rebounds and 4 blocks in a strong performance; Anderson tallied 14 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists, shooting 5-of-13.

Of the starters, Joe Johnson continued his stretch of aggressive play, racking up a team-high 18 points on 6-of-19 shooting.
