Lakers Put Nets Away Early

There was never any doubt that the Nets would tie the NBA record for the longest winless streak to start a season Sunday night in L.A. A 22-2 Lakers run in the first quarter made this one a blowout before Tom Barrise could even think about making his first in-game adjustment as an NBA head coach. The New Jersey offense continued its run of futility (34 points in the first half), while Kobe Bryant ended his string of poor shooting nights against the Nets, leading all scorers with 30 points on 11-17. Brook Lopez led the Nets with 26 points and 12 rebounds, while Devin Harris and Courtney Lee also finished in double-figures.
