New Jersey Nets Team Report – April 5
=== New Jersey Nets Team Report – April 5 ===
(Sports Network) – Richard Jefferson scored 20 points and handed out 12
assists as the New Jersey Nets rolled to a 106-89 victory over the Atlanta
Hawks on Sunday at the Meadowlands.
New Jersey, owners of a three-game win streak, received double-digit outputs
from seven players including all five starters. Kerry Kittles netted 16 points
while Lucious Harris added 14.
Already with their best two players sidelined in Jason Kidd and Kenyon Martin,
the Nets’ injury bug apparently bit Harris. Starting in Kidd’s place, Harris
suffered bruised ribs and did not play in the fourth quarter.
However, X-rays taken after the game were negative and Harris is not expected
to miss any time.
New Jersey, which will be play the third leg of a four-game homestand on
Tuesday against Milwaukee, has won 14 of its last 18 at home and is 26-12 in
its building this season.
The Nets have dropped two of three to the Bucks this season, but have won five
of the last nine meetings. New Jersey has also won four of its last five in
the Garden State against Milwaukee.
New Jersey is 10-3 in Tuesday games this season.
