Mirza Teletovic scored 24 points in the second quarter for the Brooklyn Nets and they needed it as they were outscored in every other quarter, but still managed to win 107-106 at the Barclays Center on Friday night.

Teletovic barely even got a chance last season, didn’t play much early on this season, but has become one of their best weapons lately. He finished with a career-high 34 points and was especially hot in the second quarter when he dropped 24 on 6-for-7 from behind the arc and 9-for-11 overall.

“It think it’s very important to know that all of the guys, when they saw that I made the first two shots — Deron and everybody who was in the game, AK from Paul (Pierce) to Kevin (Garnett) — was just like, ‘give him the ball,’” Teletovic said. “When you have teammates like that and they just create space for you, it’s easy.”

Deron Williams, who finished with 18 points and 11 assists still coming off the bench, benefited the most as he had seven assists alone in the second quarter. Kevin Garnett also had a double-double with 10 points and 11 assists. Paul Pierce had 12 points with four assists, three rebounds and a block.

The Nets led by as much as 12 points thanks to Teletovic’s outburst and they would need every point of that lead to win the game. The Nets had trouble with Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis late as the Mavs kept biting into the lead. Fortunately for the Nets, Andrei Kirilenko hit a pair of free throws with 5.3 left and they had just enough for the win.

The Nets are now 19-22 overall on the season and are 9-1 in 2014. It hasn’t been an especially soft schedule with wins against the Thunder, Heat, and now the Mavs.

KG and Pierce head back to Boston on Sunday.

    If you have that much money, I suggest trnyig your hand at commercial real estate. Even though the economists keep talking about recession, I have seen only growth here in San Antonio. Find a broker you trust and learn a little bit about real estate cycles. I know many millionaires who do nothing but play golf and go to meetings to collect checks once a month. Hopefully, someday you will get there too.
