Nets drop Hornets, begin to tie up forgettable season


By Bob Considine, for NBA.com
Posted Saturday April 3, 2010 11:13PM

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (NBA.com exclusive) -- When the Nets' 2009-10 season is reflected upon some time in the future, their dance with the worst record in NBA history will obviously be recalled.

But the Nets also have a chance to save a little face as they try to finish their season strong. And if they can continue to produce like they did in their 115-87 rout over the Hornets on Saturday night at the IZOD Center, maybe some will remember how strong this team finished as much as how poorly it started.

Behind a stellar 14-point, 14-assist effort from ever-improving rookie Terrence Williams, New Jersey also continued its pursuit of fewer ping pong balls in the NBA Draft on May 18. The Nets (11-65) moved to within four games of the Wolves (15-61) for the league's bottom rung. Both teams have six games remaining, although it's clear the Nets, with the growth of Williams, are playing the much better basketball.

"I've had several coaches come up to me and comment on how hard our players were playing," Nets interim coach Kiki Vandeweghe said. "And I think that's important.

"What I told our guys is you always want to be known for how hard you play. And you want to gain the reputation that every night you come out and you play as hard as you possibly can and if there's one thing to hang your hat on, it's that. If you can do that consistently, eventually that translates to wins."

This was the Nets' most dominant performance of the season, not to mention their greatest margin of victory. Eight players scored in double-figures, led by Chris Douglas-Roberts (17 points). Kris Humphries added 10 points and a season-high 12 rebounds, to make up for Brook Lopez's 12 points. New Jersey's 58.2 percent shooting and 34 assists also marked season-highs.

The Nets were solid from the start, shooting 61 percent in the first quarter, opening a 17-point lead in the second quarter and withstanding a pretty good punch from New Orleans in the third quarter. When the Hornets cut their deficit to 78-71 late in the period, Keyon Dooling, Josh Boone and Humphries scored three straight baskets in the final 1:21 to give the Nets a safer 13-point lead going into the fourth.

New Jersey outscored the Hornets, 31-16, showing a finishing kick it hadn't evidenced all season. And it was the Nets' bench doing all the damage.

David West led the Hornets with 25 points. New Orleans (35-43) is reeling a bit, having lost three straight. The Hornets' 107-96 loss to the Grizzlies on Friday night clinched their first losing season in three years.

"Coming off the back-to-back, we wanted to give a better effort that we gave," West said. "They were just better than us. They ran and were too athletic on the wing. We wouldn't guard them out front at all. Terrence Williams was just too much in terms of when he was on the court, he changed the game."

"It wasn't only me," Williams insisted. "I did some things, but you've got to credit my teammates -- they hit the shots. I would say that I had a little energy tonight. That's my job. When you come off the bench and you're the energy guy, you've got to come in with energy."

This is turning out to be a very strong finish for Williams, the Nets' rookie. In the month of March, he averaged 14.1 points and 6.7 rebounds in 15 games. In his first 11 minutes against the Hornets, he was 6 of 10 with five assists and 12 points and riled up the crowd with an impossibly high, alley-oop finish off a Harris feed, giving the Nets a 53-38 lead.

It had been a bumpy road for Williams this season, as Vandeweghe had taken his maturity to task. But on Saturday night, he lauded Williams for his growth "as a person, as player" in his first NBA season. And he said his future is bright.

"I think he understands what it takes for his game, because it's different for everybody," Vandeweghe said. But he fills up the stat sheet, he's very good with the ball in his hand. Lots of time he comes in when Devin is out of the game, so we can put the ball in his hands. We feel good about him there.

"I think each game he's learning more and more. I think these are invaluable minutes for him, to try and expand his game, to try to learn and grow and figure out how to run a team."

"It was time to grow up," Williams added. "I'm in the NBA now. I'm not in high school, not in college. It was time to take responsibility for myself and my actions of why I was playing the way I was playing.

"I thank Kiki for that, and especially giving me the opportunity to play and really sitting me down and giving me the discipline to want to learn."
