Nets Keep Streak Alive
Things couldn't get much better for the New Jersey Nets these days.
Aside from sitting six games out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference, people are fairly happy in New Jersey.
Tonight, the Nets fought from behind once again, in a 93-88 win over the Memphis Grizzlies at the Prudential Center.
After falling down 30-16 early in the first quarter, Brook Lopez and Devin Harris lead a spirited Nets squad playing in front of a depleted homw crowd due to an upcoming winter storm.
Lopez finished with 17 points while Harris talliked 13.
Anthony Morrow lead the team off the bench with 19 points.
Kris Humphries also finished in double-figures off the bench, notching 14 points.
With the game hanging in the balance, Lopez knocked down two clutch free throws to essentially end the game with 1.3 seconds remaining on the clock.
Lopez played the hero role in the Nets last win against the Cavaliers earlier in the week when he knocked down the game-winning bucket with just seconds remaining.
With the win, New Jersey improved to 14-32 and sit 21.0 games out of 1st in the conference.
However, the more important number is the fact that they are 5.5 games behind the current eighth place team, Atlanta.
