Streak Hits Six

The Nets dropped their sixth straight game Tuesday night at the Meadowlands as the Bobcats were able to hold off a comeback to win just their fourth game of the season. The Nets have found just about every way to lose a game by now, and this time it was giving up 59 first-half points to the second worst scoring team in the league. Trailing by 10 at the break, the Nets cut the Charlotte lead to five at the end of the third quarter and down to one with three minutes to go. They could never draw even and a Vince Carter three that could have take the lead with 16 seconds on the clock missed the mark. Charlotte then closed the game out at the free throw line. Richard Jefferson led all scorers with 27 points and Carter added 25, but hit just 5 of his 17 shots. The Nets got to the line 46 times, but shot less than 41% from the field, including 3-15 from downtown. Rookie Adam Morrison led Charlotte with 22.
