Morrow's 42 Aren't Enough For Nets Against Timberwolves

New, comments

Anthony Morrow played the game of his life on Friday, but he didn't have enough help, as the Nets fell to the Timberwolves, 108-105 at the Prudential Center.

The Nets led by one at the half, and that was the margin midway through the third quarter before the Wolves took control with a 12-0 run. They led by five heading into the fourth, but the Nets came back to take the lead and the game went back and forth in the final period.

A 7-0 run put the Wolves up five in the final minute. Morrow then hit a four-point play to put the Nets within one, but the Wolves made all their free throws and Deron Williams turned the ball over twice in the last 25 seconds, including on the final possession.

Morrow led the Nets with 42 points, shooting 13-for-20 from the field and 8-for-11 from 3-point range. It was the Nets' first 40-point game in three years, since Vince Carter scored 41 in March 2009. Morrow's teamates shot 38 percent. Williams added 12 points and 14 assists, but was only 5-for-18. Jordan Farmar finished with 14 points and seven assists, and Kris Humphries added 15 points and nine rebounds. The Nets dressed only 10 players.
