Nets Fall to Jazz at Rocky Mountain Revue

New, comments

The Nets led most of the way Tuesday night, but they fell to 0-2 at the Rocky Mountain Revue as the Jazz came back to win 87-79. Utah took the lead midway through the fourth quarter and the Nets failed to execute offensively or get stops down the stretch. Jaycee Carroll led the Nets with 22 points on 9-of-17 shooting for the Nets, and Ryan Anderson added 18 points and nine rebounds. Julius Hodge was solid again, scoring 14 points on 6-of-8 from the field while adding five boards and three steals. But Brook Lopez scored just four points on 2-of-11 shooting, and turned the ball over five times, while Sean Williams committed six fouls and three turnovers in just 16:25 of action. Brian Hill and Rod Thorn both praised Carroll's effort, noting how he came back from a dreadful performance Monday. Thorn, noting "we do want that third guard," said of Caroll, "He did a lot of things that we liked out here tonight."
