Nets rock Sixers in front of a few fans.

Seven Nets - including Chris Johnson - score in double figures in a preseason tilt against possibly the NBA's worst team.

In a game that closely resembled the proverbial tree falling in a forest, the Nets defeated the 76ers 127-97 in front of a handful of fans at the Wells Fargo Center tonight.

Since the game was not televised or broadcast on the radio in the New York market, there isn't much proof there was a game at all - so it's a good thing our own NetsKiNG sacrificed himself and ventured to Philadelphia to witness this game for all of us.

For those interested in the gory details, Chris Johnson and Mirza Teletovic led the Nets with 21 each, with Johnson hitting 5-of-7 from three and Teletovic, playing small forward for the first time, 5-of-9. The big Bosnian also had 7 rebounds and 5 assists. Shaun Livingston, one of only two point guards active, came within two assists and one rebound of a triple-double, finishing with 17 points in 23 minutes. He didn't miss from the field, going 7-of-7.

Among the starters (you remember them), Joe Johnson had 18 including four three-pointers, and Brook Lopez had 17 on 7-of-14 shooting in the first half, looking unstoppable.

As for the 76ers, best not to say too much.
