New, comments

The Nets' 12-game road losing streak came to an end in Charlotte with a wire-to-wire, 94-89 victory over the Bobcats on Friday.

The Nets held the Bobcats to just 33 percent shooting in the first half and led by 15 at halftime. They went up by as many as 19 in the third quarter, but the Bobcats climbed back to within four with three minutes to go in the fourth. Devin Harris then answered with a jumper, an alley-oop assist to Kris Humphries and a three that put the Nets back up 11. They held on for a five-point win.

The Nets shot just 14-for-42 in the second half, but they turned the ball over just five times all game and the bench again came through, scoring 35. Brook Lopez recorded his second double-double of the season, leading all scorers with 31 points and adding 11 rebounds. Harris finished with 16 points and eight assists and Humphries added 15 points and 14 rebounds.
