Brook Lopez shines, Nets beat Bucks 99-95Posted by Inside Hoops
The AP reports: Vince Carter kept shooting. When it came down to the end, he deferred. Jarvis Hayes hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer off a pass from Carter with 18 seconds left and rookie Brook Lopez scored 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds to lift the New Jersey Nets to a 99-95 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night. With the Nets needing wins, the bench provided a bigger-than-expected boost after Carter and Devin Harris struggled, going a combined 8-of-34 from the field. But both provided offense down the stretch… “They caught fire. That’s what great teams do,” said Ramon Sessions, who had 19 points for the Bucks.
