Nets Near the End After Bulls Loss

With Vince Carter nursing a sore Achilles, the Nets made a strong run in Chicago Saturday afternoon, coming back from 16 down to go up by one with 2:50 left. But the Bulls, aided by a flagrant foul called against Devin Harris, went 10-0 at game's end as the Nets missed their last eight shots. The loss eliminated any chance of the Nets catching the Bulls and brought their "tragic number" for playoff elimination down to two. Carter played only nine minutes in the second half and finished with four points on 2-10 shooting. The Nets' big run bridged the third and fourth quarters and was led by the team's three rookies, who finished the game with 46 points--20 by Brook Lopez, 17 by Ryan Anderson and 9 by Chris Douglas-Roberts. Lopez and Anderson had 10 boards each and Lopez added three blocks. Keyon Dooling had 16 while Harris and Jarvis Hayes had 14 each. Harris flagrant on John Salmons breakaway (off a Harris turnover) turned into a four-point play for Chicago and made it a two-possession game with one minute left. Salmons had 18 and Ben Gordon 17 for Chicago.
