Nets Lose Harris and Big Lead in Philly

The Nets lost a preseason "thriller" in Philadelphia on Friday, and also lost Devin Harris to a sprained ankle in the process. Harris sprained his left ankle, the same one he turned on Tuesday, early in the third and did not return, but said after the game that he expected to play Sunday vs. Boston. The game was close throughout the first half, but the Nets took control with a 19-3 run early in the third quarter and led by as many as 17. The Sixers came back in the fourth and cut the lead to one with four minutes to go and tied it with less than a minute left. After Brook Lopez put the Nets back up two with a tip-in, Andre Iguoldala gave the Sixers the lead with a three point play with 17.9 seconds to go. Chris Douglas-Roberts and Elton Brand then traded buckets and Rafer Alston missed a jumper with three seconds left, giving the Sixers the comeback win. Douglas-Roberts led the Nets with 20 points on 9-15 shooting and Lopez finished with 18 points and six rebounds. Terrence Williams got the start and played some point guard, finishing with 12 points, five rebounds and four assists.
