Brook Lopez tip-dunked a Gerald Wallace miss with 3.2 seconds remaining in regulation, putting the Nets up two. But the Wizards, having advanced the balll to halfcourt via timeout, inbounded the ball directly to Nene in the post, where the Washington center converted a short hook at the buzzer to force overtime...With Reggie Evans starting at power forward, Keith Bogans shifted back to the bench, playing 36 1/2 minutes and providing several key plays on both ends during the extra periods...When Deron Williams picked up his third foul halfway through the second quarter, it forced coach P.J. Carlesimo to experiment with a MarShon Brooks-Joe Johnson backcourt to east the burden on rookie backup Tyshawn Taylor. Brooks finished with 6 points and 2 assists in 8 minutes.
