Nets Get Spanked By Spurs

In case the Nets needed another reminder where they stand in the NBA hierarchy, the Spurs provided it at the Prudential Center on Monday, holding New Jersey to 35 percent shooting in an easy 102-85 victory.

The Nets shot 32 percent in the first quarter, but still managed to build a five-point lead early in the second. The lead didn't last long though, as San Antonio went on a 21-5 run and took an 11-point lead into halftime. The Nets were still within six late in the third quarter, but the Spurs put them away with a quick and deadly 13-0 run over four minutes spanning the third and fourth.

San Antonio had six players in double figures, led by Manu Ginobili's 22. Tim Duncan and DeJuan Blair had double-doubles.

The only Nets to make at least half their shots from the field were Stephen Graham (3-for-5), Quinton Ross (2-for-3) and Ben Uzoh (2-for-3). Brook Lopez and Travis Outlaw led them with 11 points apiece, Lopez recording his second double-double in the last three games.
