Blatche's career night leads Wizards past Nets


By Bob Considine, for NBA.com

EAST RUTHERFORD (NBA.com exclusive) -- The six victories the Nets have this season all have one thing in common.

They have been amazingly fleeting.

As poised as they seemed to win consecutive games for the first time this season, the Nets still couldn't manage a successful formula to get successive victories on Sunday night at the IZOD Center.

In their 89-85 win, the Wizards were led by Andray Blatche's career-high 36 points and 15 rebounds and two key baseline buckets from Randy Foye in the final minute.

But the Nets still felt they surrendered a big chance to follow up its impressive win over the Celtics on Saturday night. They blew a 14-point lead when Washington converted to a zone defense in the second half.

Devin Harris and Brook Lopez served as a tandem disappearing act for New Jersey (6-53). Lopez scored just two points in the second half, while Harris missed 16 of his last 19 shots, including an 0-of-7 stretch in the fourth quarter.

Nets center Yi Jianlian recorded a career-high 19 rebounds to go with 20 points, but also missed two big free throws down the stretch.

Harris acknowledged the Nets had given one way.

"We've given a lot away," said Harris, who did have a season-high 14 assists. "But we're learning from it."

"It's definitely a step back," Lopez said. "This could have been something."

Blatche, who has been taking advantage of his increased playing time with the trade of Antawn Jamison and subsequent loss of Josh Howard, gave Washington an 83-81 lead on an 18-foot floater with 1:33 left.

After a Blatche turnover, Yi Jianlian got to the free throw line to cut it to 83-82. Blatche then fouled Yi with 58.8 seconds left. Again, Yi made one of two to knot it at 83-83.

That's when Foye took over. He hit one 15-footer from the right baseline, an arcing shot with 44.6 seconds left, to give Washington the lead back. After a Harris miss was rebounded by Wizards swingman Mike Miller, Foye hit another 15-foot fader to make it 87-83 with 13.5 seconds left.

Yi was covering both shots and Nets coach Kiki Vandeweghe was pleased with the defense, saying Foye "hit really tough shots."

"I just said to myself to take what the defense would give me," said Foye, a New Jersey resident. "We got the switch and matchup we wanted. They put Yi on me and I just gave him a little jab step and drove at him and pulled up for the shot."

The Nets led by 14 in the first half, but struggled against Blatche, who connected on nine of his first 13 shots.

The Wizards (21-36) went with a zone defense late in the first half and by the 7:04 mark of the third period had rallied all the way back to a 57-57 tie and took a 69-68 lead into the fourth quarter, where the Nets second-half swoon continued. They missed eight of their first nine shots of the fourth frame, with three turnovers, and trailed 79-72 with 5:22 left - emphasized by a Blatche putback over Yi after an Al Thornton miss.

Blatche is now averaging 26.6 points and 11.7 rebounds over his last seven games.

"I'm excited about the way things are going for me," he said. "Good things are starting to pan out and my goals are coming true. I just want to continue to work hard and improve."

"He was a man tonight," Harris added.

New Jersey had one last gasp to keep it close, mostly thanks to Terrence Williams. The rookie swingman drained a 3-pointer and added a couple from the line to cut it to 79-77. Yi then grabbed a big rebound off a Foye miss and tossed a long outlet pass to Williams, who dunked it home hard, giving the Nets an 81-79 lead with 3:42 left.

Wizards center JaVale McGee tied it at 81-81 on a putback dunk with 2:58 left.

"To get 20-20 or 20-something (and lose), it doesn't really feel good," Yi said.

"At the end of the day, they hit a couple of tough shots and we missed a couple of tough ones," Vandeweghe added. "We missed a couple of free throws. But all in all, I thought we played 40 minutes of pretty good basketball and maybe didn't have the legs to finish it."
