Nets Finish Off Bobcats To Win Fifth Game, 103-94

New, comments

The drive for five is over. The Nets opened the second part of the season with their fifth win of the season--and second over the Bobcats. The Nets actually win the season series with Charlotte. The Nets never trailed and were tied only once, at the half. The Nets looked they were on the verge of another fourth quarter collapse. After being up by as many as 13 in the second half, they saw their lead slip to five in the last two minutes after two Gerald Wallace free throws. But a Courtney Lee miss was rebounded by Josh Boone and Jarvis Hayes made a deep three with 58 seconds left to put the Nets up by eight. From then on, it was a foul-shooting contest. Lee led the Nets with 21 points on 7-11 shooting while Devin Harris had 17 points and nine assists. Brook Lopez had 16 points but only three rebounds and fouled out in the fourth. Boone had his best game in weeks, finishing with seven points, eight rebounds and one of those last free throws. Overall, Boone and Kris Humphries finished with 20 and 16, making up for another ineffective outing by Yi Jianlian.
