Nets Hold Off Grizzlies to Pick Up Second Straight Win

New, comments

The Nets have their first winning streak since Oct. 29 thanks to their first road win since Nov. 15, a 101-94 victory in Memphis on Tuesday.  They've won three of their last four as well.

A 17-2 run that spanned the first and second quarters gave the Nets a 14 point lead. The Grizzlies came back and went ahead early in the third, but the Nets responded and took control late in the period. Memphis was within four midway through the fourth, but the Nets got big buckets and free throws from Brook Lopez and Devin Harris, along with a dagger from Stephen Graham to hold them off.

The Nets shot 53 percent from the field and held Memphis to just 40 percent. Lopez led the way with 26 points on 8-for-14 from the field and 10-for-11 from the line. Kris Humphries recorded his ninth double-double and held Zach Randolph to one point and two boards in the second half.  Sasha Vujacic added 16 points off the bench, and Harris finished with 12 points and five assists.
