Nets Come Back and Beat Kings Without Harris

New, comments

The Nets got their first win of the season without Devin Harris ... sort of. Harris logged 19 minutes, but with his hamstring still bothering him, he couldn't play in the second half against the Kings Monday night. And the Nets trailed by as many as 13 early in the third quarter. But behind a big period from Yi Jianlian, the Nets cut the lead to two heading into the fourth. A 10-0 run put the Nets up nine with three minutes to go and they held on for the win. Yi had his best game as a Net, finishing with 22 points on 8-14 shooting, 13 boards and two blocks. Vince Carter led the Nets with 29 points, adding nine rebounds and seven assists. Kevin Martin scored 25 points on 8-9 shooting in the first half for the Kings, but made just three of his 12 shots after halftime. The Nets now have their first home winning streak of the 2008-09 season. Harris hopes to play Wednesday, but says that Friday is more likely. The Nets play in Milwaukee Friday--Harris' hometown.
