Nets Come Up Empty in Washington

The Nets forgot to pack their momentum from Wednesday's win over the Bulls. They the came out completely flat in Washington on Friday, scoring just three points over the first eight minutes of the game and never recovering from the ugly start.

While the Nets couldn't buy a bucket, the Wizards started out red hot. They scored 30 points in the first quarter and were still shooting 59 percent at halftime. The Nets cut the lead down to 12 midway through the third quarter, but Washington didn't let them get any closer than that, and actually had their biggest lead, 25 points, early in the fourth.

Adding injury to insult, Devin Harris left the game in the third quarter with a right quad contusion. Harris shot just 1-for-7 from the field in his 20 minutes, but he was outdone by Travis Outlaw (1-for-8) and Sasha Vujacic (1-for-14). The Nets shot just 35 percent as a team and were led by Brook Lopez and Jordan Farmar with 14 points apiece.
