Nets Can't Get the One They Were Supposed To

This was supposed to be the one they won. But the Nets may be looking at a winless trip through the Southwest Division, because they couldn't beat the Grizzlies in Memphis Wednesday night. It was a game of runs and the Nets, after trailing by double-digits early on, led by as many as 10 midway through the third quarter. But it was tied after three and the Grizzlies took the lead for good with a 9-3 run to start the fourth. The Nets were within two with just over a minute to go, but a Hakim Warrick three-point play made it a two-possession game and the Nets never got a chance to tie. Warrick led all scorers with 25 points and Mike Miller added 22 for Memphis. Richard Jefferson led the Nets with 22, but did not score in the final 18 minutes. Devin Harris added 20 points and eight assists, but was 0-for-6 from downtown. The silver lining was Nenad Krstic, who had his best game since his return, scoring 16 points on 8-of-13 from the field, and grabbing nine boards.
