Augustin's Jumper Beats Nets in Closing Seconds

The Nets first season at the Prudential Center ended in disappointing fashion, as D.J. Augustin hit a jumper with 1.1 seconds left to give the Bobcats a two-point victory on Monday night.

The Nets led for most of the first half, but the Bobcats took control with a 13-2 run midway through the third quarter. The Nets came back and took a brief lead on a long three by Sasha Vujacic with just over two minutes to go in the fourth, but Charlotte answered with a 3-point play by Boris Diaw and then a Diaw three on the next possession. Vujacic tied the game with another three with 10.7 seconds left, but Augustin hit a step-back jumper over Brook Lopez with 1.1 seconds on the clock to win the game. The Nets were out of timeouts and couldn't get a shot off after the Augustin shot.

Both teams shot better than 54 percent from the field. Lopez led the Nets with 31 points on 12-for-23 shooting, while Jordan Farmar scored 20 points and dished out nine assists. Vujacic finished with 19 points and Brandan Wright added 10 points off the bench.
