New Jersey Nets Team Report – December 1

=== New Jersey Nets Team Report – December 1 ===

(Sports Network) – The New Jersey Nets target their first winning streak of
the season this evening when they face the Washington Wizards at the MCI
Center.

Last night, New Jersey snapped its nine-game losing streak, as Richard
Jefferson posted 23 points to lead the Nets to a 99-86 victory over the
Charlotte Bobcats at the Meadowlands.

Eric Williams delivered 22 points for the Nets, who used the NBA’s most recent
expansion franchise to win just their third game in 14 chances this season.
Alonzo Mourning netted 18 points and 11 rebounds in the victory.

The win was the first for New Jersey since topping the Portland Trail Blazers
back on November 9.

New Jersey, which will begin a two-game homestand on Saturday against the
Atlanta Hawks, is just 1-5 away from home this season.

The Wizards topped the Nets earlier in the season, but has lost 10 of the last
12 meetings. New Jersey has also won two straight and four of its last five in
Washington.
