Carter triple-double, Nets beat Bucks 99-85Posted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports: This was not the homecoming Richard Jefferson envisioned. Vince Carter made sure of that. “R.J. was being R.J.,” Carter said. “So we had a good time with him.” Carter had 15 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds for his fifth career triple double, and the New Jersey Nets spoiled Jefferson’s return with a 99-85 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night… Although he started off the night by missing his first three shots, Jefferson finished by hitting 7-of-16 from the field to lead Milwaukee with 27 points… Brook Lopez had 22 points and 12 rebounds to complement Carter, who had his third triple-double with the Nets and first since April 4, 2002, against Washington.
