New Jersey Nets Team Report – November 26

=== New Jersey Nets Team Report – November 26 ===

(Sports Network) – The New Jersey Nets try to avoid their eighth consecutive
loss this evening when they continue their four-game road trip against the
Seattle SuperSonics at KeyArena.

New Jersey’s latest loss came on Thursday, as it found itself on the losing
end of a 101-88 decision against the Los Angeles Clippers at the Staples
Center.

Richard Jefferson had 24 points and six rebounds for the Nets, who are in the
midst of their worst slide since losing seven in a row from January 23-
February 2, 2001.

Travis Best poured in 16 points off the bench in the loss for New Jersey,
which is a half-game back of Chicago and New Orleans for the worst record in
the league.

The Nets, which will close their trek against Portland, is a dismal 1-2 away
from home this season.

The Sonics defeated the Nets earlier in the season, but has dropped four of
the last seven meetings in the series. New Jersey, though, has dropped 13 of
its last 15 in the Emerald City.
