Nets nets hornets

On Tuesday night, the Nets defeated the New Orleans Hornets by a final score of 108-98.

The Skinny: The pace of this game started off slow at both ends, but the Nets found their groove, as five early offensive rebounds from Reggie Evans helped Brooklyn go on a 12-2 run to open an eight-point lead. The Nets consistently got to the free-throw line (8-of-10) in the opening quarter. Brook Lopez scored four of his 12 first-quarter points from the charity stripe, and the Nets led by nine after one.

Against Brooklyn?s second unit, the Hornets got their act together offensively after a cold first quarter and went on a 12-0 run spanning the quarters to get back within one. But once Deron Williams reentered the game at the 9:47 mark, the Nets went on a 19-7 run to go up 13. Andray Blatche poured in 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting in the second quarter, which helped the Nets maintain their nine-point lead at the break.
