Jared Dudley with a funny line on Lakers' defensive lineup at times late in the fourth quarter of the Nets' win on Tuesday. "No bigs in there. LeBron's probably their 5 and you know he's not really trying to play no defense out there right so for us it's just, you're trying to get downhill and trying to get to the basket."

Jared Dudley on Joe Harris, who had 19 points on 7-13 shooting in the Nets' win over the Lakers : "I think that Joe Harris has shown that he's a starter in this league. You look at him -- a white guy 6'4", 6'5 out there -- doesn't look like a ballplayer and the next thing you know he has 16 or 18 points and suddenly he's going at you... I think that people don't really take him seriously enough. After he has about 16, hit three or four threes they do."

Kenny Atkinson on Jared Dudley, who had several big plays late in the Nets' win over the Lakers: "He's that guy you play with in the park. You come to the park and he's got tattered sneakers, he's like 42 years old, but the darn guy always stays on the floor and his teams are always winning. And want that guy when you go to the park. You want Jared Dudley on your team because the IQ is off the charts."

When he was 13, Jarrett Allen said his coaches would always asked him if he was going to try to block LeBron James' shot when he made it to the NBA. He proved that he had no problem doing that on Tuesday. Allen was the ninth player to block a LeBron dunk in 1850 career dunk attempts when he swatted James in the first quarter of the Nets' win.

Kenny Atkinson said Jarrett Allen, like all great shot-blockers, isn't afraid to get dunked on and he credits Allen for getting the crowd energized with his strong clock on a LeBron James dunk in the first quarter.

D'Angelo Rusell has 22 points and 13 assists against his former team to lift the Nets to an upset win over the Lakers. Brooklyn has won six in a row, something they haven't done since 2015. Joe Harris added 19 points and Jared Dudley had 13, including several big shots late in the game. LeBron James had 36 and 13 rebounds.

My favorite NBA headline this week is that the Lakers would be open to trading Ingram for a star.
