Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Keith Van Horn scored six of his 21 points in a decisive first-half surge as the New Jersey Nets rolled to a 101-91 victory over the Washington Wizards, who have lost four in a row.

Van Horn made 7-of-13 shots as he led the Nets in scoring for just the fifth time this season and first time in eight games. He had three baskets in a 21-6 burst that turned a three-point deficit into a 50-38 advantage with 1:28 left in the second quarter.

"I think Keith played extremely well tonight," said Nets guard Stephon Marbury, who has been carrying the team's scoring load for most of the season.

The 6-10 forward took some of the burden off Marbury, who added 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting. In Saturday's 75-70 loss to Miami, Marbury struggled to 10 points and Van Horn managed just nine.

"We responded. Last night was a tough night for us," Marbury said. "We knew that in order for us to get this win we had to establish ourselves early."

Johnny Newman scored 13 points and rookie Kenyon Martin added 12 for the Nets, who led by as many as 23 points and won for the third time in four games. New Jersey has won six of its last seven at home.

"I thought for the last seven or eight games that we played well at home," Nets coach Byron Scott said. "We have done a good job of establishing ourselves at home. We have beaten some pretty good teams at home."

Mitch Richmond scored 21 points and Christian Laettner added 19 and 10 rebounds for the woeful Wizards, who fell to 0-3 against the Nets this season and have lost 10 of 11 overall.

"We are not sound enough defensively to defend a team of this caliber," Wizards coach Leonard Hamilton said. "We dug a hole for ourselves and we just couldn't get out of it."

The Nets shot 49 percent (40-of-81) and held the Wizards to just 34 percent (31-of-90), a season low for an opponent. New Jersey had a season-high 13 blocked shots, including a career-best five by former Wizard Aaron Williams.

Richmond scored 10 points in the first quarter to offset nine by Van Horn as Washington took a 28-25 lead. The Wizards still led, 32-29, when the Nets began their run.

Lucious Harris made a layup and Van Horn added a jumper and a dunk off an alley-oop pass from Sherman Douglas. Richmond had a layup, but baskets by Newman, Douglas and Van Horn gave New Jersey a 41-36 lead with 4:45 left in the second quarter.

Washington's Richard Hamilton sank a jumper before the Nets rattled off nine straight points. Two free throws by rookie Stephen Jackson gave New Jersey a 50-38 lead with 1:28 to go.

The Nets led 52-41 at halftime and used an 11-0 burst to turn it into a rout. Marbury and Van Horn had 3-pointers before another by Harris made it 69-47 with 7:19 remaining in the third period.

A driving layup by Douglas gave New Jersey its largest lead at 95-72 with 5:28 to play. Washington got no closer than the final margin.

Douglas collected eight points and six assists off the bench. Hamilton scored 15 points and Loy Vaught added 10 for the Wizards.
