Red-Hot Second Half Not Enough for Nets

The Nets showed some resolve Tuesday night at the Izod Center, rebounding from a 20-point deficit against the Blazers, but they just couldn't get enough stops to finish the comeback. The Blazers shot 59 percent in the first half, led 54-34 late in the second quarter, and were up 19 in the break. The Nets caught fire in the third quarter and cut the lead down to five midway through the fourth, but that would be as close as they would get. The Nets shot 21-33 in the second half, but the Blazers shot 55 percent for the game and turned the ball over just three times. Devin Harris and Courtney Lee led the Nets with 28 points apiece and Brook Lopez finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds.
