Nets Fall Apart in Second Half

The Nets were done in by one of their cold spells Monday night at the Izod Center, falling to the Thunder 105-89. It was a high-scoring affair most of the way and the Nets took the lead with a 9-0 run midway through the third quarter. They trailed by just one after a Yi Jianlian bucket with 3:40 left in the period, but then scored just two points in a 9:50 span that lasted until there were less than six minutes to go in the game. By that time, they were down 16 and the game was out of reach. Yi tied a career high with 29 points and Devin Harris finished with a double-double, but Kevin Durant led all scorers with 40 points and the Thunder outrebounded the Nets 43-33 and outscored them 33-20 at the free throw line.
