Warriors Run Past Nets as Alston Rips Teammates

New, comments

As they did after their first win, the Nets carried the momentum from Tuesday's game into the first quarter against the Warriors on Wednesday at the Izod Center. But once again, they couldn't hang on to their early lead. The Nets led by 11 late in the first quarter, but the Warriors came back and were up 10 at halftime thanks to 13 New Jersey turnovers in the first half. Golden State led by as many as 20 midway through the third quarter and by 11 heading into the fourth. The Nets cut the lead down to five with 6:30 to go, but that was as close as they got. They turned the ball over 22 times in the game and gave up 28 fast break points. Brook Lopez recorded another double-double (21 and 10), but was responsible for six of the turnovers. Devin Harris finished with 19 points, but shot 4-11 from the field. Meanwhile, Rafer Alston ripped his teammates for failing to "pull for each other...That's more hurtful than anything, is to not cheer your teammates on who are out there trying to get the job done."
