Nets Win With Miracle Finish

It helps to have the world's fastest man with a basketball on your team. The Nets ended their five-game slide in the most unlikely of ways Monday. After the ball had been knocked out of his hands, Devin Harris' desperation heave that barely beat the buzzer went through the basket, giving the Nets a two-point win at the IZOD Center Monday night. The Sixers led by 12 at the end of the first quarter, but the Nets got back into it with a 13-2 run to start the second and the game was close from then on out. Vince Carter tied the game with a drive with 13 seconds on the clock, but Harris then fouled Andre Iguodala with 1.8 left. Iguodala hit the second of two and the Nets had no timeouts left. Harris took the inbounds pass and Iguodala knocked it away, but Harris caught it and heaved it towards the basket. The referees originally waved off the basket, but changed their ruling after viewing replays for two and a half minutes. Harris led the Nets with 39 points and eight assists, while Keyon Dooling added 16 points off the bench.
