Nets' Comeback Falls Short Against Clippers

The Nets rebounded from another ugly start on Monday, but a big comeback fell short, as they finished their road trip at 1-3 with a 101-91 loss to the Clippers.

The Clippers took control with a 16-0 run midway through the first quarter, led by 13 at the half and by 11 at the end of the third. A 15-2 Nets run tied the game with 6:46 left to go in the game, but they came up short on their only chance to take the lead. The Clippers answered with a 6-1 run and Chauncey Billups hit the dagger with just over a minute to go.

The Nets shot 42 percent from the field and 8-for-24 from 3-point range. The difference in the game was rebounding, where the Clippers had a 46-35 advantage.

MarShon Brooks led the Nets with 19 points and eight rebounds. Four other Nets scored in double-figures, including Deron Williams, who made just five of his 14 shots. Shelden Williams fueled the fourth-quarter comeback and finished with eight points and eight boards. Blake Griffin led L.A. with 23 and 14.
