Déjà Vu For Nets as Wizards Win at the Wire Again

New, comments

A month after Earl Boykins kept the Nets from getting their second straight win with a last-second jumper at the Izod Center, Randy Foye did the same with a pair of jumpers in the final minute on Sunday night. The Nets led by as many as 14 in both the first and second quarters, but they were up just six at halftime. The Wizards eventually took the lead late in the third and were up for most of the fourth before the Nets went ahead with a 9-0 run. Foye gave Washington back the lead with a jumper with 44 seconds left and, after Devin Harris missed a shot to tie it, Foye hit the dagger with 13.5 to go. After scoring 31 points on 13-19 shooting in the first quarter, the Nets shot just 19-72 the rest of the way. Yi Jianlian led them with 20 points and a career-high 19 rebounds, but missed two free throws in the final two minutes. Devin Harris finished with 18 points and 14 assists, but shot just 7-24 from the field. Brook Lopez also had a double-double, while Andray Blatche had 36 and 15 for the Wizards.
