With just six games left to play in New Jersey, the Nets have their first home winning streak of the season, thanks to an easy 110-98 win over the Wizards on Friday.

The Nets led from start to finish, scoring 33 points in the first quarter and leading by as many as 22 early in the fourth. They shot a season-high 56 percent from the field and had a season-high 32 assists on their 45 field goals.

Deron Williams was asked after the game if he’d like to see more of the team, because of the recent good play.

"You would," Williams responded, with a laugh. Then after a long pause added with a smile: "19 days," the time left between now and the season's end.

Five Nets scored in double-figures, led by Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams with 19 points apiece, and with Williams adding 13 assists. MarShon Brooks finished with 18 points, six rebounds and six assists, Anthony Morrow added 17 points on 8-for-11 shooting, and Kris Humphries grabbed 12 rebounds. Jordan Williams, who's played well lately, finished with a season high 14 points on 7-for-7 shooting.
