New, comments

The Nets won their third straight home game Wednesday night, taking care of business against the Grizzlies at the IZOD Center. The Nets led from start to finish and were up 16 late in the second quarter and midway through the third. They never really put the Grizzlies away, but Memphis could only close to within seven in the final minutes. Vince Carter led the Nets with 25 points and a season-high 12 assists. Yi Jianlian played well for the second straight game, scoring 20 points on 7-13 shooting. It was the first time this year that he's had back-to-back 20-point games. Brook Lopez added 17 points and eight boards while blocking five shots, tieing a season high. Both seven-footers are now averaging better than 10 points a game. Keyon Dooling dished out a season-high eight assists, and Eduardo Najera contributed quality minutes off the bench. As a team, the Nets tied a season high with 28 assists. It was their first win in which Devin Harris did not play.
