It Gets Uglier as Nets Drop Eighth Straight to Philly

Terrence Williams was packing his bags for his move to Houston, Anthony Morrow suffered a strained right hamstring before the game even started, and the Sixers came in playing strong defense, so this one had real potential to be ugly. And it was. The Nets shot just 34 percent from the field in dropping their eighth straight game, a 82-77 loss to the Sixers at the Prudential Center.

An 10-2 run early in the first quarter gave Philly a lead they naver gave up. The Nets were within two early in the fourth quarter and within three in the final minute, but they never got a chance to tie or take the lead.

Brook Lopez led the Nets with 16 points and Derrick Favors recorded his second career double-double. Kris Humphries grabbed 13 rebounds, but shot just 1-for-10 from the field.

After the game, Devin Harris called a team meeting. "We need to jump out on these teams and really put them back on their heels, but it’s like we walk into a fight and we catch the first three punches before we realize what’s going on," he said afterward.

Morrow will have an MRI on his hamstring on Wednesday.
