Nets Gets Pounded Once Again

The Nets tour of ineptitude continued in Utah Saturday night with another putrid performance. The Jazz made 17 of their first 19 shots from the field on their way to a 60-point first half, led by as many as 37 points and won by 33. Utah shot 61 percent from the field with five players in double figures. Yi Jianlian and Brook Lopez led the Nets with 16 and 14 points respectively, but were outrebounded 20-8 by Carlos Boozer and Mehmet Okur. In a post-game interview, Boozer says friends on the Nets have told him there's been "bickering and talking back and forth to each other." Meanwhile, Keyon Dooling, Courtney Lee and Chris Douglas-Roberts combined for 10 points and three assists. Terrence Williams had 13 points, six rebounds and three assists off the bench. The Nets are now 0-11 in January with an average margin of defeat of 19.6 points. Devin Harris, who sat out the game with a sprained wrist, will have an MRI Sunday. The Nets play again Wednesday.
