Road Woes Continue as Nets Fall in Philly

The Nets fell to 2-18 in their last 20 road games with a loss in Philadelphia Saturday night. The Sixers led most of the first half and by as many as nine in the opening minute of the third quarter. The Nets outscored them 33-19 in the third and had their own nine point lead late in the period, but Philly took the lead back early in the fourth. They led by one when Josh Boone missed a contested layup that could have given the Nets the lead with 38 seconds to go. Vince Carter then missed a three to tie with 18 seconds on the clock and the Sixers put the game away at the line. The Nets shot just 38 percent from the floor for the game and had seven turnovers in the fourth quarter. Carter led them with 27 points, but Richard Jefferson scored just 11, missing 12 of his 15 shots. Nenad Krstic was a bright spot with 14 points, seven boards and two blocks. Atlanta beat Orlando, so the Nets are now 1 1/2 games out of the eighth spot in the East.
