Green, Brooks help Nets top 76ers
They have to hope the wins start coming in bunches again.
Because if the losses keep piling up, not only will a 20-9 start be wasted, the Sixers will miss the playoffs.
Gerald Green scored 23 points, and Kris Humphries had 18 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Nets to a 95-89 win over Philadelphia on Friday night, three nights after the Sixers thumped the Nets by 19 points.

|On Philly's lineup change:
"Gutty effort for us. We werenâ€™t at our best the last time we played them. I think we were feeling sorry for ourselves because Gerald Wallace was injured again, and we had to make another adjustment. No feeling sorry for ourselves tonight. We played hard. We were locked into this game at shootaround this morning.
"We made a decision to give a lot of our high-minute guys two days off. We took a smaller group to the gym yesterday, and it was actually a lot of those guys from that group that helped us win this game tonight. MarShon Brooks, Jordan Williams, Armon Johnson, and a lot of those guys, whether it was offensively or defensively, those were the guys that helped us win the game."
