On Saturday night, the Nets defeated the Charlotte Bobcats by a final score of 105-96.

The Skinny: The Nets dominated the interior to start, with 10 of the team?s first 12 points coming in the paint. But the Bobcats relied on offensive rebounds and second-chance points to stay in the game. Charlotte?s Gerald Henderson managed nine first-quarter points, but Brooklyn led by six after one.

Andray Blatche was unstoppable to start the second quarter, scoring the first eight Nets? points in the frame. Ben Gordon ? who the Nets had interest in at the NBA trade deadline ? and Jannero Pargo helped the Bobcats tie the game and take the lead after combining for 16 points on 5-of-6 shooting by the halfway mark of the quarter. Brook Lopez got the Nets get back close, and a fade-away jumper by Joe Johnson put Brooklyn back ahead. A Nets? bad turnover at the end of the first half led to an easy lay-up from Henderson, which gave the Bobcats a one-point lead heading into the break.
