NETS NOTES The Nets announced pregame that G Deron Williams had his wrist surgery postponed from today to Monday due to a scheduling conflict. GM Billy King said that a "fine cut" MRI revealed the bone particles, most of which had been there for some time. He added that Williams seemed relieved to finally know the source of the pain.

G Anthony Morrow, slated to start at shooting guard, felt his sore right knee lock up on him while warming up for the game; Sasha Vujacic replaced him. Morrow said he hopes he's day-to-day, and will see how he feels after undergoing treatment tomorrow.

In the last four games, C Brook Lopez is averaging 32.0 PPG and 7.0 rebounds while shooting .633 in 38 minutes...G Ben Uzoh set a career-best with four blocks...The Knicks swept the season series 4-0 for the first time since 1990-91 (they swept 3-0 in lockout-shortened '98-99).

Brook Lopez
27 PTS, 1 STL
11-17 FG, 5-6 FT
OFFCOURT

Anthony Morrow
On Brook's midcourt steal and the subsequent one-man fast-break:

"That was highlight, man. Brooks very athletic. Ive seen him make plays like that in pickup. I tell people hes fast to be a 7-footer, but thats the most Ive seen him dribble."
