Another Night, Another Blowout

There was never any doubt, but just to keep you guessing, the Nets switched back to the lousy-defense formula for losing games Wednesday night in Atlanta. It took more than six minutes for them to make a shot from the field, and by that time, they were already down 14. The Hawks led by as many as 35 in this one, shooting 57 percent from the field on their way to an easy 119-89 victory. They were led by Jamal Crawford and Joe Johnson, who combined for 49 points on 18-27 shooting. The Nets got 19 points and 11 rebounds from Yi Jianlian, 12 and eight from Brook Lopez, and 15 points and eight assists from Devin Harris. Chris Quinn hit a three in his Nets debut.
