Nets Go Ice Cold in Fourth, Fall to Clippers

The Nets got off to a decent start and avoided falling into a deep hole early against the Clippers Tuesday night at the IZOD Center, but they found a new way to lose, this one their fourth straight. The game was close throughout and L.A. held a four-point lead at the end of three. Then, after Vince Carter hit a jumper with 10:16 to go in the fourth, the Nets missed 15 straight shots from the field. When they finally got a field goal with 1:02 to go, it was too late and the Clippers got their first win in New Jersey in nine years. For the game, the Nets shot 32 percent from the field, with Richard Jefferson shooting 6-for-21, Vince Carter 5-for-17, and the bench hitting just 5 of their 22 shots. For the second straight game, Jason Kidd recorded a triple-double and Sean Williams did not play.
