Nets Get Torched by Worst Offense in the League

While Billy King works hard to get a deal done for Carmelo Anthony, the present-day Nets are just getting worse. They followed up Friday's in Washington by laying another egg against the Bucks at the Prudential Center on Saturday.

The start to this game wasn't quite as ugly as Friday's, but the Bucks still built a double-digit lead in the first quarter. They led by as many as 15 early in the second, by 10 at the half, and by as many as 26 in the third.

Milwaukee has the worst offense in the league, but they scored a season-high 115 points on a season-high 58 percent shooting, even though they were missing Andrew Bogut. Playing without Devin Harris, the Nets' offense wasn't terrible, but they couldn't keep up with the Bucks, who were led by Chris Douglas-Roberts' 24 points off the bench.

Kris Humphries led New Jersey with 22 points and eight rebounds. Jordan Farmar added 20 points and 10 assists, and Derrick Favors finished with 12 points, six rebounds and three blocks in his third career start. Though he was being defended by forward Ersan Ilyasova, Brook Lopez had just five points and a rebound in 19 minutes.
