Humphries Leads Nets to First Win of 2010

Playing without Devin Harris and Courtney Lee, the Nets snapped their 11-game losing streak with a win over the Clippers at the Izod Center Wednesday night. Kris Humphries was the star, scoring a career-high 25 points and grabbing eight rebounds in 30 minutes off the bench. The Nets grabbed the lead with a 9-0 run midway through the first quarter and never trailed after that. After they led by as many as 16 points late in the second quarter, the Clippers came back to tie the game early in the third, but Humphries and Keyon Dooling combined to outscore L.A. 14-4 over the next few minutes and build the lead back up. The Clippers never got to within less than five in the fourth. Dooling, starting for Harris, finished with 18 points and eight assists. Brook Lopez added 19 points and nine boards, while Terrence Williams filled the boxscore with seven points, nine rebounds, eight assists and a pair of thunderous dunks.
