Nets Drop Fifth Straight

Defense was the issue once again as the Nets dropped their fifth straight game, a 108-92 loss to the Jazz at the Izod Center Wednesday night. The game was close for the first quarter and a half, but the Jazz gained some separation with a 10-2 run in the second. The Nets never really threatened after that. Utah shot 56 percent from the field and were led by Carlos Boozer (26 points and 10 rebounds) and Deron Williams (20 points and 14 assists). Brook Lopez led the Nets with 23 points and 10 boards and Terrence Williams added 17 points, but the point guard combination of Devin Harris (1-9) and Rafer Alston (3-10) shot struggled from the field.
