Sixers Beat Nets at the Wire Again

New, comments

The Nets fell to 0-8 Wednesday night with another last-minute loss to the Sixers, this one at the IZOD Center. It was a low-scoring affair and close throughout. Marreese Speights gave the Sixers a one-point lead with 1:10 to go and after the teams traded empty trips, Brook Lopez missed on a spin move with 15 seconds left. The Nets got two more chances when Samuel Dalembert and Thaddeus Young each made just one of two at the line, but Terrence Williams missed a baseline jumper with the Nets down two and Rafer Alston threw the inbounds pass away on the final possession. The teams combined to shoot just 40 percent from the field and neither had more than 22 points in a period. Lopez recorded his third double-double of the season with 23 points and 14 rebounds and Williams picked up his second double-double in his first career start, finishing with 10 points and 12 boards.
