Reggie Bullock scored 17 of his 19 points in the first half for his first back-to-back double-figure scoring games since early February but they weren’t enough to win at Brooklyn against the torrid Nets.

The Knicks gave the Nets a good game before falling 117–112 Monday night.

Bullock, who turns 30 on Tuesday, has scored in double figures in three of the past four games and 12 times in 35 games this season after doing it only 10 times in the same number of games last season.

The five 3-pointers from Bullock, who scored 14 on Saturday at Oklahoma City, were tied for the second-most this season. He hit five at Cleveland on Dec. 29 and got a season-high seven Feb. 9 against Miami. Bullock pulled down five of his six rebounds in the first half.

Bullock had the defensive assignment of guarding James Harden for much of the game and outscored him 17–11 in the first half but Harden finished with 21.

Bullock’s 14.7 game score was his second-best of the season, topped only by a 15.0 in his 21-point game against Miami on Feb. 7.

Theo Pinson didn’t play for New York.


Harrison Barnes collected 13 points and five rebounds in Sacramento’s 122–116 loss at Charlotte.

With the March 25 trade deadline getting closer, Barnes continues to be the subject of trade rumors, with a good bit of buzz about a possible deal that would send him to the Boston Celtics.


Wayne Ellington missed Detroit’s 109–99 home loss to San Antonio with a strained right groin. Cameron Johnson missed his fourth consecutive Phoenix game under health and safety protocols.
