Another Big Second Half Propels Nets to Fourth Straight Win

The Nets struggled in the first half once again, shooting just 33 percent from the field before the break against the Bobcats Friday night at the IZOD Center. They trailed by as many as 13 in the second quarter and it was a six-point deficit at the half. They turned it around in the third quarter though, and took their first lead with a Vince Carter layup with 19 seconds to go in the period. That was part of a 12-0 run that gave them a seven-point lead early in the fourth and Charlotte never got to within less than five after that. Jason Kidd recorded his eighth triple-double of the season, Vince Carter led the Nets with 30 points on 10-of-19 from the field, Richard Jefferson added 28 despite playing sick, and Darrell Armstrong had another strong game off the bench with six points, five assists and three steals. The Nets shot 56 percent in the second half and assisted on 31 of their 39 field goals for the game.
