Mirza Teletovic Breaks Out For The Brooklyn #Nets

Updated: January 6, 2013

Last night in Brooklyn the Nets found something that everyone has been waiting for since the summer…….Mirza Teletovic can play and is much more than a shooter. 

Teletovic came in to start the second quarter and played a solid nine minutes to help the Nets put together an 18 point lead and break the game open.  Teletovic came in and hit a couple of 3-pointers to help create that lead and also showed everyone he is not one-dimensional with his all around play on the other end of the floor.

Teletovic ended the game with 14 points, six rebounds, two assists and two blocks on Demarcus Cousins in almost 21 minutes of playing time.  The game was his best of the year and hopefully now that PJ Carlesimo is giving him an opportunity to play he can continue to take advantage of it and find a spot in the rotation.

The Nets need a “stretch 4” more than anything and if Teletovic can come in and play solid defense to go with his impressive offensive abilities it can only help the Nets be the team we all hoped it would be.
