Nets get the victory in Jason Collins return.
The Nets manhandled the Lakers through the first two quarters as they closed out the half with a 63 to 47 lead. The Lakers outscored the Nets 55 to 45, but their attempt to come from behind fell a few points short as Brooklyn won on the road 108-102. Collins played 10 scoreless minutes and was mostly a non-factor other than taking some minutes away from Andray Blatche, which could be an issue for Blatche's fantasy value going forward. As for Collins fantasy value, he summed it up best when he said, "It felt good to go out there and foul people."ANALYST: Michael Pichan
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
