24-1 Fourth Quarter Run Not Enough for Nets

New, comments

It looked like the team with the worst record in the league was going to hand the Nets their worst loss of the season Monday night in Oklahoma City. The Nets trailed by 30 points early in the fourth quarter, but then their garbage-time squad went on a 24-1 run to cut the Thunder lead to seven with a minute to go in the game. The comeback fell short though, and the Nets finished their road trip 1-3. The game was close for most of the first half, but the Thunder finished the second quarter on a 9-2 run and then made their first nine shots of the third to take complete control. The score was 88-58 early in the fourth before the Nets made their run. Vince Carter had his fifth single-digit scoring game of the season as he and Devin Harris combined to shoot just 6-29 from the field. Brook Lopez led the Nets with 18 points and seven rebounds, Kevin Durant led the Thunder with 18 points, while Nenad Krstic added 11 points and six boards.
