Nets assistant coach and scout Jim Sann is resting at a New Jersey hospital after he suffered a heart attack during practice Sunday. (Wojnarowski, Feb. 3).

Nets trainer Tim Walsh performed CPR and used a defibrillator to revive Sann, 46, a widower and parent of a boy, 9, and girl, 7.

It's the second time in three weeks Walsh has been credited with saving a life. Last month, Walsh insisted a CT scan be performed on Nets forward Mirza Teletovic. The test revealed blood clots in his lungs which could have been fatal had Teletovic taken a team flight from Los Angeles to Utah following the Nets' loss to the Clippers Jan. 22 (Nets, Jan. 24).

Friday night, the Nets?beat the Dallas Mavericks to extend their hot streak to start the new year to an NBA-best?9-1.

Brooklyn got a big boost off the bench from Mirza Teletovic, who scored 24 of his career-high 34 points in a wild second quarter, in which he scored 19 points on 7-of-7 shooting in his first six minutes of play.

Teletovic hadn't scored more than 19 points in a game in his NBA career before Friday night, but the Bosnia and Herzegovina?native was not going to be denied.

It looks like Mirza Teletovic may finally get the consistent opportunity to prove why the Nets signed him.

Rather than put their tails between their legs, the Nets have to figure out a way to make up Brook Lopez?s production, now that the team?s starting center will be out for the season. Sure, the Nets have gotten off to a slow start, but the Atlantic Division is very weak, and even without Lopez, Brooklyn still has arguably the best roster if everyone else is healthy and contributing.

Jason Kidd has a few options when it comes to his new starting lineup. Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Kevin Garnett are locks, but Kidd can then fill out the lineup in some creative ways, and one way he looks committed to is leaning on the Bosnian sensation.

Nets coach Jason Kidd is trying hard to find effective lineup combinations for his team lately, and that has opened the door for many on the Nets bench who are trying to carve out a role for themselves.

Over the last week and a half, nobody's taken advantage of the extra opportunities more than 28-year-old Mirza Teletovic.

Teletovic has excelled in extended minutes recently, and it's led to a firm place in the Nets rotation going forward for the?Bosnia and Herzegovina native.

NEW YORK ? There are many things that can be said about the Brooklyn Nets and their recent winning streak. Brook Lopez's emergence as one of the best centers in the conference, the developing chemistry of the Big 3 and the team's ability to win back-to-back games in decisive fashion, even without Gerald Wallace.

On Tuesday night, the Nets defeated the Toronto Raptors by a final score of 113-106, despite being outrebounded, 41-34. There are a bunch of stats that can explain why the Nets were able to overcome that and win, sure. None is bigger than the fact that the team committed just six total turnovers.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. ? This summer, Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King gave his bench a facelift. King added eight players that are expected to make the final roster and contribute off the bench. Two holdovers from last season, MarShon Brooks and Keith Bogans, will also see playing time as reserves.

After giving the Nets bench such a drastic makeover, is this a case of quantity or quality?

BROOKLYN, N.Y. ? Chris Brown and Pitbull brought you the original ?International Love,? but Mirza Teletovic is working on his own remix with the Brooklyn Nets. No, Teletovic isn?t recording a new sound track, but the Bosnian forward will give Brooklyn fans plenty of reasons to love the new foreign import.

Teletovic is a 6-foot-9 power forward with NBA three-point range that will stretch opposing defenses. Last season, Teletovic shot 43 percent from beyond the arc for Caja Laboral (Spain) and has continued to shoot efficiently through the start of Nets training camp.
