Nets Start Strong, Fall Apart in Second Half Against Grizzlies

The Nets dropped to 2-22 in 2010 by blowing an 18-point lead to the Grizzlies at the Izod Center Sunday night. The Nets scored 36 points in the first quarter and led by as many as 18 early in the second. But the Grizzlies slowly climbed back into the game and took control with a 17-0 run that spanned the third and fourth quarters. The Nets threatened a couple of times after that, but never got a chance to tie or get the lead back. Their 36 points in the second half matched their first-quarter total. For the game they had 21 offensive rebounds, but shot 4-21 from 3-point range and turned the ball over 20 times. Brook Lopez had 17 points in the first quarter and finished with 26 points and nine rebounds. Devin Harris added 17 points and 13 assists, but had eight of the 20 turnovers. Rudy Gay led all scorers with 29 points.
