NEW YORK -- Jason Collins started walking from the bench to the scorers table, fans rising out of their seats all around Barclays Center. Ersan Ilyasova Jersey . He committed a foul five seconds after entering. His only shot barely hit the rim. Collins performance may not have been pretty, but everything else was great. Collins played the final minutes of a winning home debut with the Brooklyn Nets, who cooled off the Chicago Bulls with a 96-80 victory Monday night. "It was cool. It was a lot of fun to go into the game," Collins said. "The most important thing was that we got the win. Chicagos been playing really well as of late and for us to come out and really be -- I think we played more physical than they did tonight." Finally playing at home more than a week after returning to the NBA as the leagues first openly gay player, Collins checked in to a standing ovation from a sellout crowd of 17,732 that included former NBA Commissioner David Stern with 2:41 remaining. He grabbed a rebound and had one of the Nets NBA season high-tying 19 steals in their third straight victory. Deron Williams scored 20 points and Joe Johnson had 19 for the Nets (29-29), who got back to .500 for the first time since they were 2-2 after beating Utah on Nov. 5. D.J. Augustin scored 16 points off the bench for the sloppy Bulls, who turned it over 28 times, leading to 30 Nets points, and had their four-game winning streak snapped. The Bulls had a franchise-low three turnovers in their 109-90 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday and had won nine of 10. But the Nets were too good in this one, building a series of comfortable leads and making the only intrigue down the stretch whether Collins would get in during his first home appearance for the Nets since Jan. 29, 2008, against Milwaukee in East Rutherford, N.J. A chant of "Jason Collins! Jason Collins!" broke out while Williams was shooting a free throw with the Nets leading 90-73 with 3:27 remaining. Fans finally got their wish less than a minute later -- though not because coach Jason Kidd was listening to them. "No, the game was out of hand, so I wanted to get those guys some rest," he said. "D-Will was shooting free throws. Couldnt put Twin in at that time, so I told him after the free throws that he would come in." Collins original 10-day contract will expire Tuesday and the Nets plan to sign him to a second deal on Wednesday. A Nets player from 2001-08, he has appeared in all five games since he signed on Feb. 23. Paul Pierce and Shaun Livingston each scored 14 points for the Nets, who were without starting centre Kevin Garnett for a second straight game because of back spasms. "Mentally, the Bulls have really had our numbers," Pierce said. "To be honest, if I was them Id feel like when they come play the Nets, they feel like they could beat us every time. I think the guys really had pride tonight to say, You know were tired of getting pushed around by the Bulls." Joakim Noah managed just 10 points, six rebounds and one assist for the Bulls, a day after finishing with 13 points, 14 assists and 12 rebounds in his fifth career triple-double. The All-Star centre rolled his right ankle early in the second half of that game and said it hurt after the game, but he was determined to play Monday in his hometown. The Bulls had dominated the first two meetings and beaten the Nets four straight times, but Brooklyn controlled this one most of the way in improving to 12-2 at home since Chicagos rout here on Christmas Day. "We smashed them in the mouth twice, its never going to be easy to come in to tough-minded team and do it again," Bulls forward Taj Gibson said. The Nets scored the first eight points, the last one on Williams free throw after Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau screamed his way to a technical foul after calling time. Their lead grew to 15, but the Bulls trimmed it to 27-18 by the end of the first quarter. Brooklyn led 50-42 at halftime, and Chicago started the second half just as bad as the first. The Nets scored the first seven to take a 57-42 lead when Williams set up Mason Plumlee for a dunk. "I think we had all intentions to play hard, but like I say, it didnt show," Augustin said. "Being down early, you cant come start the game down, you cant start the second half down, so that was our big mistakes, and then the turnovers killed us." NOTES: The Nets 19 steals were their most since finishing with 20 against Indiana on March 21, 1989. ... Brooklyn hadnt scored more than 23 points in a period against Chicago this season and surpassed that in both the first (27) and third (26). Atlanta Hawks Jerseys . McCutchen hit his first home run in over a month, doubled twice and scored two runs to help the Pirates beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 on Sunday and take three of four from the defending NL West champions. Miles Plumlee Jersey .Brady threw a 69-yard touchdown pass to Julian Edelman midway through the fourth quarter, and New England beat the San Diego Chargers 23-14 for its eighth win in nine games. http://www.hawksteamproshop.com/Cheap-Taurean-Prince-Hawks-Jersey/ . The NFL announced Friday that the Texans sixth-year veteran offensive lineman will replace Philadelphia Eagles tackle Jason Peters in the Jan.HARRISON, N.J. -- Thierry Henrys retirement, should it come at the end of the 2014 Major League Soccer season season, will likely not cause the Montreal Impact to shed many tears. The French legend scored twice in less than 15 minutes against Montreal on Saturday night, leading New York Red Bulls to a 4-2 victory. Henrys two goals were his eighth and ninth in five games against the Impact. He has never played a game against Montreal in which he did not score. "Hes a legend, hes a great player," defender Wandrille Lefevre lamented. "Those great players, when the games are tough, they find a way to find goals for their team." "Great players make a difference, I dont know," manager Frank Klopas said, trying to find a reason for Henrys dominance against his club. "Wherever hes played, hes done that to almost everyone." The Impact - now 4-15-5 and at the bottom of the Eastern Conference table by eight points - are somewhat victims of their own success in the Canadian Championship, as CONCACAF Champions League competition made this the third game in seven days across three countries. Montreal defeated CD FAS Tuesday night in Santa Ana, El Salvador, as well as a win at home over Chicago a week ago. Klopas refused to use that as an excuse. "I thought we were sharp. Second half, I think Henry made a big difference, and sometimes theres nothing you can do. We had a couple of chances down 2-1, then gave up the third goal. A lot of hard work in the first half, it was the best half that we played. But its two different halves, and Henry made a big difference for them in the second half." Midfielder Dilly Duka, on the other hand, said he felt fatigue early. "To be honest, after the first five minutes. Music can only pump you up so much in the locker room, then you go out there and feel your joints." Despite the offensive outburst from New York in the second half and the clubs general faatigue, Montreal headed into halftime with a 1-0 lead. John Collins Jersey. Recently acquired Duka, who grew up just over 20 miles from Red Bull Arena in Montville, New Jersey and attended local Rutgers University, struck a ball just inside the left post, beating Red Bull goalkeeper Luis Robles in the 37th minute to give Montreal a lead. The homecoming for the veteran midfielder, who had about a dozen family members and friends in the crowd, was hardly noticeable given the Impacts schedule. "Its been a long week for us. We had a home game, we flew to Miami for a couple days, then to El Salvador, then came here. Its a long trip, Im just glad to get back home to Montreal." New York - now 7-7-10 and holding the last Eastern Conference playoff spot - got two goals from Henry in the 53rd and 67th minutes, then it became the Bradley Wright-Phillips show. Henry sent the MLS leading goal scorer loose on a run, and he chipped the ball past goalkeeper Evan Bush. Then he added a similar strike in the first minute of stoppage time to finish off Montreal. The goals were the English strikers 19th and 20th of the season, breaking a New York franchise record held by Juan Pablo Angel, who scored 19 in 2007. "Another guy that showed that he can finish," said Duka. "I dont think he had that many chances, but pretty much every chance he had, he finished. Hes having a great year, and he punished us." A character moment for Montreal came when down 3-1, in the 79th minute, as Andres Romero bent a beautiful shot past Robles to make it 3-2. Despite eventually giving up Wright-Phillips goal in injury time, the Impact found it encouraging. "Obviously, this is something we have to be proud of," said Lefevre."It would have been easy at 3-1 to just give up, because of three games in one week, itd be easy to think the game is over. We had a chance to tie the game until, finally, they scored that fourth goal."
