Scola and Rockets Send Nets Home With Another Loss

New, comments

The Nets still have time to avoid finishing with the worst record in NBA history, but they will end the season without a road win against the Western Conference. The 0-15 mark came to fruition amongst a barrage of short Luis Scola jumpers in Houston on Saturday night. The game was close through the first three quarters, but the Rockets pulled away with a 7-0 run in the fourth after Devin Harris missed an opportunity to tie it. Scola led all scorers with a career-high 44 points on 20-25 shooting. The Nets shot 54 percent from the field and 9-15 from 3-point range, but made just 17 of their 26 free throw attempts and were outrebounded by the Rockets 43-31. Courtney Lee led the Nets with 24 points on 10-14 shooting. Brook Lopez added 22 points and 10 rebounds, but turned the ball over seven times. Devin Harris (19 points and seven assists), Jarvis Hayes (16 points, 4-5 from 3-point range) and Terrence Williams (14 points and four assists) also had strong offensive games.
