Nets Vs. Wizards: New Jersey Loses Fourth Straight, 108-89

Make it four in a row for the New Jersey Nets. They lost to a rejuvenated Washington Wizards team by a final score of 108-89 on Wednesday night.

The frustration boiled over for Deron Williams and head coach Avery Johnson. Both players were ejected for arguing with the refs as the game unraveled in the third quarter. The pair wanted a call on Williams' drive to the net from referee Josh Tiven.

Nene made his debut in a Wizards uniform after coming over in a trade with the Nuggets last week. He had a double-double in his Wizards debut, scoring 22 points and pulling in 10 rebounds. Jordan Crawford led the team with 23 points.

Washington shot better than 48 percent from the field. The Nets struggled, hitting less than 37 percent of their shots.

Williams led the Nets with 17 points. Kris Humphries, Anthony Morrow and Gerald Wallace each had 13 points. Humphries also finished with 16 rebounds.

The Nets travel to Atlanta on Friday.
