Bucks 91, Nets 81: Twelve-Point Second Quarter Dooms Nets On The Road

It wasn't nearly as disheartening as their blowout loss to the Indiana Pacers the night before, but the New Jersey Nets still couldn't find a way to win on the road Saturday when they fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 91-81.  The Nets have now lost 11 straight games away from the Prudential Center.

New Jersey led by three after one quarter, but only managed to put 12 points on the board in the second quarter and the Bucks never looked back.  The home team led by as many as 14 and were never really challenged by the Nets in the second half.

Brook Lopez continued his hot streak on offense, leading the way for New Jersey with 26 points.  Anthony Morrow added 16 while Devin Harris had 10 poins along with 16 assists as he dealt with a lower leg injury.

Every starter for the Bucks scored in double figures including 21 from Carlos Delfino and 17 for Andrew Bogut.

The Nets haven't won on the road since December 21 and have only been victorious as a visitor three times all season.

Milwaukee has now won seven straight over the Nets and will have a chance at the season sweep on March 18.

Next up for the Nets is Carmelo Anthony and the Denver Nuggets Monday night in Newark.
