Nets Hit New Low With Loss to Raptors

The Raptors came in at 2-15, having played the night before in Atlanta. Their second leading scorer, Mike James, was a late scratch with a bad back. The Nets were at home with three days of rest and were feeling good about things despite a loss to the Pistons on Wednesday. They got off to a hot start, building an early seven-point lead. It all went downhill from there. The Raptors caught up by the end of the first quarter and outplayed the Nets the rest of the way. The Nets came back from ten down to tie the game at 80 with a little over four minutes to go, but Toronto then went on an 8-0 run to put the game away. Due to foul trouble in the first half and a minor ankle injury in the second, Vince Carter was limited to just 27 minutes for the Nets, and he shot just 4-11 from the field. Jason Kidd led the Nets with 17 points and Richard Jefferson added 15 points and 10 rebounds. Jeff McInnis and Marc Jackson were solid off the bench.
