Krstic Helps Turn Things Around for Nets

After two terrible losses with Nenad Krstic out with bronchitis, the rookie center returned to the lineup Friday night, and scored a career high 25 points on 9 of 12 shooting, and helping the Nets to a victory over the Charlotte Bobcats. The Nets got out to another hot start, leading by 13 at halftime, but they struggled throught the 3rd quarter again, and let the Bobcats to within 1 point early in the 4th. This time, however, they responded well, hitting 11 of their first 13 shots in the 4th quarter, and cruising to a 7 point victory. Vince Carter led all scorers with 28 points, and Jason Collins provided 12 rebounds and excellent defense on Emeka Okafor.
