Harris and Hayes Go Down as Nets Lose to Pistons

New, comments

The Nets' latest losing streak reached six games in Detroit Saturday night, and they may have lost a pair of starters as well. The Pistons hit their first seven three pointers, shot 61 percent in the first half, and led most of the night, but an 11-2 Nets run tied the game early in the fourth quarter. The Nets took a brief lead a few minutes later, but scored just four points over their next 11 possessions and Detroit came away with a seven-point win. To make matters worse, Jarvis Hayes and Devin Harris collided in the final minute while attempting to chase down a loose ball with the game still within reach. Harris suffered a mild sprain of his left shoulder, while Hayes bruised his left shin. Their status for Tuesday's game vs. the Cavs is uncertain. "I don't think it's as bad as it could be," said Harris. Detroit shot 52 percent for the game and was led by rookie Jonas Jerebko, who didn't miss a shot. Harris led the Nets with 21 points--including a trio of three pointers, and seven assists. Brook Lopez added 20 points, and Kris Humphries finished with 14 points and nine boards on his 25th birthday.
