Nets Drop Chance for First Winning Streak

The Nets' best chance of the season at a winning streak fell short when they lost a late lead to the Wizards at the Izod Center Friday night. Led by a fast start from Courtney Lee, the Nets led by as many as 12 early in the second quarter, but it was a one-point game at halftime. They had a three-point lead with five minutes to go in the game, but lost it when they went seven straight possessions without a point. Brook Lopez ended the drought with a layup to tie the game with 13 seconds left, but Earl Boykins hit a jumper with 0.4 left and Jarvis Hayes' desperation try at the buzzer didn't come close. Washington shot just 42 percent from the field, but grabbed 15 offensive boards. Lee led the Nets with 19 points--only two in the second half, while Lopez added 17 points and eight rebounds.
