Nets 94, Bobcats 89: Rare Brook Lopez Double-Double Leads To Rare Road Victory

The New Jersey Nets won just their fourth road game of the season -- and first in 13 attempts -- Friday night with a 94-89 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats.

Brook Lopez recorded just his second double-double of the year with a game-high 31 points and 11 rebounds.  Devin Harris added 16 points while Kris Humphries had the game's other double-double thanks to 15 points and 14 rebounds off the bench.

The Bobcats were led by Stephen Jackson's 21 points and Gerald Wallace scored 20 as Charlotte dropped four of five overall and six of eight games.

The Nets were up by 15 at half and 19 in the third quarter but the Bobcats were within four in the final three minutes of the game.  A 7-0 run by New Jersey, including five from Harris put Charlotte's comeback attempt to bed.

Next up for the Nets, the New York Knicks will visit the Prudential Center on Saturday.
