Nets Fall to 0-14 as Offense Continues to Struggle

New, comments

Ugly offense continues to be the story for the Nets as they approach the record for the worst start in NBA history. The Nets shot just 39 percent from the field and 5-20 from 3-point range, while turning the ball over 24 times Tuesday night in Denver, falling to the Nuggets 101-87. The Nets jumped out to a 9-2 lead, but the Nuggets outscored them 27-10 over the final 10 minutes of the first quarter and did not look back. It was a six-point game late in the second quarter, but a 15-1 Denver run spanning the second and third kept the lead at double-digits for good. Rafer Alston and Devin Harris led the Nets with 19 points apiece, but Chris Douglas-Roberts and Brook Lopez combined for just 10 points on 2-10 shooting. The only bright spot was the return of Courtney Lee. Although he scored only seven points on 2-7 shooting, he had a career-high six steals in 22 minutes.
