Wizards Blow By Nets

The Nets led Tuesday night's game in Washington by 11 (64-53) with 7 minutes left to go in the 3rd quarter. The Wizards then outscored New Jersey 59-24 the rest of the way, hitting a franchise record 14 3 pointers on 27 attempts. The Nets shot 51% from the field, but committed 22 turnovers and got just 12 points off the bench. Vince Carter scored 31 points on 15 of 23 shooting, and Jason Kidd had his best game of the season with 19 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assists, but the Nets' perimeter defense was a step too slow all night. Washington has now defeated the Nets 3 times this season by an average of 21 points.
