Halfway through the New Jersey Nets contest with the Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey finds themselves down 52-43.
Deron Williams and Kris Humphries, the two most consistent Nets throughout this difficult season, have led the scoring effort with 24 combined points on just 8-19 shooting.
Gerald Green, who has settled in with New Jersey and appears to have re-cemented his status as a legitimate NBA shooting guard, came of the bench to chip in six points.
The stakes are high for Philadelphia, as they now stand just a game and a half up on Milwaukee in the Eastern Conference standings, and could fall behind the New York Knicks with a loss and a Knicks win later Tuesday night.
Center Spencer Hawes is doing his part to keep Philly afloat, shooting 5-6 and contributing 11 points in a reserve role.
