I just got a new Nexus 5. I booted into TWRP, and, while not thinking, I wiped all data. Android is gone. Booting obviously doesn't work. When I tried using adb sideload to flash CM11, and also stock 4.4.2, it fails. What can I do?

What fails when you adb? Flashing the factory image with fastboot is another option

You can also do adb push on twrp:

"adb push Romname.zip /sdcard"

then, flash the Rom.
if that doesn't work, you might need to re-install adb drivers on computer.
