Nets' Road Woes Continue

Coming into Tuesday night's matchup at the Palace of Auburn Hills, the Nets had lost six straight games on the road, while the Pistons had won eight straight at home. Both streaks stayed active as Detroit used a 14-0 third-quarter run to send their four All-Stars off to Houston on a winning note. The Pistons shot just 39% from the field for the game, but the Nets committed 17 turnovers and could not get much offense out of Vince Carter, who shot just 5 of 13 from the field for 13 points. It was an ugly game throughout and the Nets were able to keep it close until that deciding third-quarter run in which they shot 0 for 6 with one turnover. Richard Jefferson led New Jersey with 18 points and 9 rebounds, but Jason Kidd tied a season low with just 3 assists. The Nets will get one more chance to end their road streak before the break in Charlotte Wednesday night.
