When you have Joe Jesus, expect miracles

It's not just you, it's reality: NO player has hit more buzzer beaters than Joe Johnson has in the last decade. Mikhail Prokhorov wasn't kidding when he said "Joe Cool ... as usual" as he left Barclays Center. As ESPN's Stats and Info reported Monday night, Johnson has hit SEVEN buzzer-beaters -- game-winning shots with no time left -- over the past 10 seasons, easily the most in the NBA. Monta Ellis and Andre Iguodala each have four. That's five with the Nets, two with the Hawks. In fact, Johnson has hit the Nets last five buzzer-beaters.  The last Net not named Johnson to hit a game...

JOE JESUS HAS RESURRECTED AND IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING. During a season filled with bad news and losses, Monday served as a nice getaway from the negative energy. The Nets redeemed themselves after a disappointing loss to the last-placed Sixers on Saturday and defeated the Denver Nuggets, 105-104, following a game-winning three-pointer as time expired. It's Joe Johnson's FIFTH game-winning shot as a Brooklyn Net. And to make matters even better, the Nets' first-round pick from this years draft, Chris McCullough, suited up and made his NBA debut after sitting out for over a year due to an ACL...

Nets go wild from deep and snap five-game losing streak, 128-119

BROOKLYN, N.Y. --  The Nets played real basketball and it was awesome. They usually average 5.6 three-pointers made per game, but nailed a season-high 18 on 28 attempts and 29 assists. The ball was moving and the guys in black and white finally made the opposing team pay from beyond the arc. What we're essentially saying is... #HireDavidNurse With the win, the Nets snapped their five-game losing streak and defeated the Sacramento Kings, 128-119, Friday night at Barclays Center. It was behind the lead of Joe Johnson who finished with a double double of 27 points and 11 assists. Bojan...

Report: Heat would be interested in a bought-out Joe Johnson

Joe Johnson may be getting a buyout with the Brooklyn Nets, and the Heat may interested. Good idea? The Miami Heat may be looking for some help in the back court with the injury to Tyler Johnson, who is expected to miss 2 months. They might want to add another Johnson, that is Joe Johnson. Joe is on a large contract with the Brooklyn Nets who are struggling really really bad. Johnson won't ask for a trade, and there likely won't be too many suitors for a guy with his contract. But, there's always the possibility of a buyout. If the Nets and Johnson can agree on a number that would allow...

Joe Johnson unsure of his future as Chris McCullough's approaches

Some news Tuesday after the futures of the oldest and youngest Nets -- Joe Johnson, who's 34, and Chris McCullough, who turns 21 Friday.

NEW YORK — Joe Johnson isn’t the type to wear his competitiveness on his sleeve for all to see. But the losing is bothering him — understandably so. The Nets aren’t mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but they might as …

Signs of Joe Johnson life only bright side to Nets

ATLANTA — As the Nets’ season reached its official halfway point Saturday, Joe Johnson continued to show some encouraging signs of finally breaking out of his long malaise.

Struggling Hawks return home to face Nets

The Atlanta Hawks look to snap a two-game losing streak when they finish off a back-to-back against the Brooklyn Nets. The Atlanta Hawks hope that a little home cooking will be the fix for what is ailing them. Things appeared to be headed in the right direction a week ago when the Hawks snapped Chicago's six-game winning streak with a solid performance at Philips Arena. Things fell apart quickly as they were blown out in Charlotte on Wednesday and then suffered a hard-fought overtime loss in Milwaukee on Friday. Atlanta was barely competitive against the Hornets but led for most of the...

Is Joe Johnson a trade asset again ... and does it matter?

Stein: Joe Johnson doesn't want a buyout

For Joe Johnson, at least, it still ain't that bad here. Marc Stein reports in a series of tweets Monday that Joe Johnson has no desire to leave the Nets in a friendly buyout and the Nets' lack of general manager makes such a move unlikely. All indications are the Nets' Joe Johnson, contrary to recent suggestions, presently has no interest in seeking a buyout in Brooklyn. So ... — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) January 11, 2016 So if JJ holds firm to that stance chances greatly increase he finishes season w/Nets, since $25M is hard to trade even as expiring contract — Marc Stein...
