The Nets who are in the middle of the pack in the Eastern conference went into Washington and got blown out, like the blizzard going up the coast to the Wizards 89-74. The Wizard used a 16 point second quarter advantage and made it stand up through the second half.
The Wizards rolled off a 22-2 run during the Nets' field goal drought, which finally ended on a Brook Lopez's inside basket with 3:36 remaining in the half. Brooklyn shot 4 for 22 for the period and scored 11 points.
The Wizards were led by Nene who had 20 points and 11 rebounds. Guard John Wall added 15 points and nine assists while Martell Webster scored 16 points for the Wizards. The Nets were led by Deron Williams who had 20 points 6 rebounds, and five assists. Reggie Evans had 13 rebounds to go along 9 points.
This was only the second lost to a sub.500 this season for Brooklyn, who fell to 29-21, 5.5 games behind Miami.
