Youth Served in Nets' Victory...and for the Season

Not many teams have two 20-year-olds score 40 points in a game, but the Nets did Friday night...and won. Brook Lopez, who put his teenage years behind him in April, had 25 while Ryan Anderson, a month younger, had 15. Elias Sports Bureau says only two other Net rookie centers ever scored 25 in a game before, Mike Gminski and Nenad Krstic. It just emphasizes how young--and hopefully talented--this Nets team is.
