Nets Go Cold in Boston

The Nets could have used Vince Carter Wednesday night at the TD Banknorth Garden. They shot just 33 percent from the floor and 53 percent from the line as the Celtics pulled away in the second half to remain undefeated. The Nets started strong and held a nine-point lead early in the second quarter, but they scored just eight points in the last 11:22 of the half and Boston was up two at the break. They were up eight after three and then blew it open by the middle of the fourth quarter. Richard Jefferson led the Nets with 21 points, but shot just 7-of-19 from the field. Jason Kidd finished with 19 points, nine boards and seven assists, but he was just 7-of-18. The lone bright spot for the Nets was rookie Sean Williams, who had a career-high 14 points, seven boards and four blocks in 29 minutes.
