Porous Nets Defense Can't Stop Bucks

Poor team defense on the part of the Nets led a second straight blowout loss on the road. The Nets took 18 more shots than the Bucks Wednesday night, but shot 35% to Milwaukee's 54%, and lost by 23 at the Bradley Center. In a game that Jabari Smith outscored Michael Redd 19-13, the Nets gave up 17 fast break points and put the Bucks on the foul line 34 times. Smith led all scorers with a career-high 19 points, and also added 6 rebounds and a career-high 6 assists. With the loss, the Nets fell back into last place in the Atlantic Division, and now hold a 5-12 road record.
