Crobasket/B. Petrinovic

The once Nets and future Nets met in Istanbul Monday night and in the end, the once's won, 94-76. Efes Anadolu, with Jordan Farmar and Sasha Vujacic, defeated Fenerbahce, with Bojan Bogdanovic and Ilkan Karaman. The loss knocked Fener out of first place in the Turkish League but once again Bogdanovic played well.

The Nets' 2011 second round pick finished with 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting, but only 1-of-4 from deep. He was the only double-figure scorer for Fener and is now averaging 24 points over the last two games, easily his best stretch this season.

Vujacic finished with 18 and Farmar 12 for Efes, but the difference maker was former Celtic and Cavalier, Semih Erden, who scored 27 points for Efes. Erden played for Besiktas with Deron Williams last season. Ilkan Karaman, who tried to guard Erden, played only 16 minutes and came away with five points, six rebounds and two blocks.

Efes is the third team where Farmar and Vujacic have paired as teammates. They won two rings with the Lakers and played together for a year in New Jersey. Vujacic joined Efes during the lockout while Farmar joined this season, after being bought about by the Hawks after the Joe Johnson.
