Nets Beat Bulls at the Wire

The Nets got their first road win of the season, holding on to beat the Bulls in Chicago Tuesday night. The Nets took control with a 21-6 run that spanned the first and second quarters, but the Bulls came back to tie it at halftime. The Nets were up 10 at the end of the third quarter, but the Bulls came back again and the game was tight in the closing minutes. Derrick Rose put the Bulls up one with 19.5 seconds left, but Devin Harris answered with 14.9 to go. After John Salmons missed a jumper, Rafer Alston put the Nets up three at the line with 6.1 left. The Nets chose to foul Derrick Rose with 2.1 on the clock and were able to secure the rebound and the victory. Brook Lopez led the Nets with 25 points and 10 rebounds, his 10th double-double of the season. Chris Douglas-Roberts (20 points) was among four other Nets in double-figures. They shot just 3-20 from 3-point range, but were 24-28 from the line and forced 19 Chicago turnovers. Terrence Williams was benched for the entire game, the first time that's happened this season.
