Any doubts that the Nets' season was over were extinguished with a putrid effort Monday night at the IZOD Center. The Nets got severely outplayed by the Bucks on both ends of the floor, extending their losing streak to five games. It was a one-point game with 4 1/2 minutes to go in the first quarter when the Bucks went on a 18-0 run to end the period. They never looked back after that and led by as many as 35. The Nets shot 37 percent from the field and turned the ball over 16 times, while allowing the Bucks to shoot 48 percent, including 10-21 from downtown. Richard Jefferson led Milwaukee with 29 points and 10 rebounds, while Chris Douglas-Roberts led the Nets with 14.
