Nets Lose 18-point Lead, Fall in Dallas

The Dallas Mavericks extended their winning streak to 13 games on Wednesday, but not before the Nets gave them a scare. Behind Devin Harris and Brook Lopez, the Nets jumped out to an 11-1 lead and led by as many as 18 in the second quarter. The Mavs closed to within eight by halftime, took the lead midway through the third, and were up eight heading into the fourth. But the Nets didn't fold. They closed to within a bucket in the final minutes, but couldn't convert on their two opportunities to tie it or take the lead, and Dallas came away with a nine-point win.

Both teams had six players in double-figures, but the difference in the game was at the foul line, were the Mavs outscored the Nets 24-13. Devin Harris led the Nets with 21 points and seven assists, but turned the ball over six times. Terrence Williams continued his strong play, finishing with 18 points, 13 rebounds and three assists. But Brook Lopez shot just 5-16 from the field and Courtney Lee also struggled after a hot start. The Nets held Dirk Nowitzki to just 12 points on 3-16 shooting, but Jason Kidd was the key against his old team, finishing with 20 points (hitting five threes), nine assists and four steals.
