The Nets season is half over and with Wednesday night's loss in Phoenix, they're on pace for exactly six wins. The Nets led by one with less than three minutes to go in the second quarter, but the Suns used an 8-0 run to take a seven-point lead into halftime. They then pushed the lead to double-figures early in the third. The Nets hung around after that, but never threatened. Phoenix shot 54 percent and turned the ball over just 10 times. Amar'e Stoudemire and Jason Richardson combined for 53 points with the help of Steve Nash's 15 assists. Robin Lopez set a career high with 20 points, but Brook finished with 26 points and 13 rebounds, one of five Nets in double-figures.
