NBA scores: Nets win in double OT, Celtics win and Sixers lose

Here's your wrapup of all the action from around the NBA Friday night.

The Brooklyn Nets were lucky to get out of Washington, D.C -- the home of the worst basketball team in the NBA -- with a win Friday night. Thanks to a Joe Johnson game winner with 0.7 seconds left in double overtime, the Nets won 115-113 to move their record to 18-15. Led again by Brook Lopez, with 27 points, 13 rebounds and 3 blocks (though he had 7 turnovers), this game will go down in the "a win is a win" category.

Elsewhere in the Atlantic Division, the Boston Celtics took it to the Indiana Pacers, 94-75, despite Kevin Garnett getting ejected for essentially punching Tyler Hansbrough in the face in the fourth quarter. No player on the Celtics reached 20 points, but Garnett and Rajon Rondo each scored 18 and Paul Pierce and Courtney Lee scored 13 apiece.

The Philadelphia 76ers were blown out by the Oklahoma City Thunder in OKC Friday night, 109-85. The Thunder have the best record in the NBA and they showed why against the Sixers, shooting 52 percent from the field and 59 percent on threes in the win.
