Nets Can't Hang With Warriors

The Nets and Warriors played even for most of the first half and it was just a one-point game at the break, but the Warriors took control with a 33-18 third quarter. They led by as many as 19 in the fourth and were up 14 when the Nets went on an 10-1 run to cut the lead to five in the final minute, pushed hard by Devin Harris and Keyon Dooling. But that would be as close as they got and the Warriors iced the game at the foul line, winning by eight. Both teams shot 42 percent from the field, but the difference was at the line. Golden State shot just 65 percent from the stripe, but they got there 52 times. They Nets were 21-28. Vince Carter led the Nets with 20 points and Josh Boone added 17 points and 14 boards. Brook Lopez picked up 10 and grabbed eight rebounds, giving the Nets' center tandem 27 points and 22 rebounds. Lopez, however, fouled out early in the fourth. Among the Nets' other youngsters, Ryan Anderson scored 12, including two three-pointers, and Chris Douglas-Roberts helped a second quarter rally with three assists--one a spectacular alley-oop to Carter. Yi Jianlian was held scoreless and didn't play after the 7:38 mark in the third. Sean Williams didn't play at all, and neither did Marcus Williams for Golden State.
