The Nets finished the first half of the season with 10 wins and their last West Coast road trip of the season with none as the Warriors held off repeated comebacks to win, 109-100. The game was a sloppy affair with the Nets turning the ball over 16 times, which led to 24 Warrior points and their 11th loss in 12 games.
Monta Ellis had 26 points and nine assists while David Lee added 24 points and 10 rebounds, who've won two of their first three games in a key stretch to the season that features 13 of 14 games at home.
Brook Lopez scored 20 points and Devin Harris added 19 for New Jersey, which has have lost six straight. Sasha Vujacic had another good game, scoring 16. He's averaged 15.1 ppg over the last five. Upfront, Derrick Favors had another scoreless game, his second in the last three. Kris Humphries meanwhile had another double-double off the bench, finishing with 11 points and 10 rebounds.
The Nets promise that this will be the same roster that will open a homestand Wednesday vs. the Jazz in front of Mikhail Prokhorov...then again on Friday vs. the Pistons.
