Just when things are going bad, the Charlotte Bobcats are there to remind you that the situation could be worse. On Saturday at the Prudential Center, the Nets completed a season-sweep and snapped their five-game losing streak with an easy, 102-89 victory over the 7-39 Bobcats.

The Nets controlled the game from start to finish, up six at the half and taking a 23-point lead with a 16-2 run to end the third quarter. They shot just 44 percent from the field, but grabbed 16 offensive rebounds.

All five Nets starters scored in double-figures, with Deron Williams (19 points and 14 assists), Kris Humphries (20 points and 16 rebounds) and Shelden Williams (10 points and 11 rebounds) all recording double-doubles.

It was the Nets' first four-game sweep of an opponent since the 2008-09 sweep of the 76ers.
