Nets' Lost Season Continues with Loss of Game...and Courtney Lee

Brook Lopez's best game since the season opener--and Trenton Hassell's best game in years--weren't quite enough to help the Nets avoid the worst start in franchise history Friday. The 76ers rode Louis Williams and a hot-shooting fourth quarter to beat New Jersey in a Philly heart-breaker. Up eight early in the fourth, the Nets couldn't close the deal. After Hassell missed two free throws, Andre Iguodala put the Sixers up by three with 11.6 left by making one of his. The Nets couldn't get off a clean shot as Andre Iguodala stripped the ball from Terrence Williams just before the buzzer sounded. Lopez finished with 22 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks while Hassell also had a double-double, with 17 and 12. It was his first start of the season after playing only eight minutes in the previous five games combined. Courtney Lee left the game in the third with a left groin injury. The Nets are now 0-6, the only winless team in the NBA. For the Sixers, Lou Williams finished with 18 points, nine rebounds and six rebounds.
