BROOKLYN—Brook Lopez scored 18 points in 17 minutes to lead six players in double figures, and the Brooklyn Nets got a nice effort from their reserves in beating the Sacramento Kings 113-93 on Saturday night for their third straight victory.
One night after needing two overtimes to escape with a 115-113 victory in Washington, the Nets made sure the starters weren't too taxed. Deron Williams and Joe Johnson both scored 15 points, but neither had to play even 30 minutes.
Reserves MarShon Brooks and Andray Blatche each scored 15 points and Mirza Teletovic had a career-best 14 as the Nets scored a season-high 65 points in the first half and improved to 5-1 under interim coach P.J. Carlesimo.Read the full AP Game Recap on NBA.com.

|"I'm as encouraged about the blocked shot and the rebounds. It's good to see (Mirza) make shots, but there's never been any doubt that he could make shots. He might've been going through a little adjustment, but we were never worried about 'Can he make shots?'"|
