Nuggets Blow Nets Away in Second Half

The Nets hung around with the undefeated Nuggets for a half Wednesday night at the IZOD Center, but the rules say you've got to play a full 48 minutes, and as a result, the Nets are now 0-5 on the season. Playing with early energy, the Nets led by as many as six in the second quarter and were up one at the half. Denver then opened the third with a 9-0 run to take the lead for good, exploded 44 points in the period and outscored the Nets 72-43 in the second half. The Nets had six players in double-figures, led by Chris Douglas-Roberts with 19 points, but shot just 38 percent from the field and 2-15 from 3-point range.
