NEW YORK, N.Y. - The big men were a big disappointment in Washington. Nene and Marcin Gortat quickly made up for that.Nene scored 20 points, three other Washington big men were in double figures, and the Wizards beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-90 on Saturday night to split their home-and-home series.Overpowered by Brook Lopez on Friday in their building, the Wizards bounced back behind 10 points and 16 rebounds from Gortat, and strong bench efforts from Kris Humphries (13 points) and Kevin Seraphin (12).We knew that its going to be a tough game for us but end of the day, me and Nene, we believe we are one of the most dominant big men in the league and unfortunately we didnt play that way yesterday, Gortat said. Today was a little bit different. We dominated the game and we helped our team to win this game.Bradley Beal finished with 17 points, nine rebounds and eight assists for the Wizards, who shot 52 per cent from the field to overcome their 14-of-27 effort from the free throw line.Jarrett Jack had 22 points and eight assists for the Nets. They had snapped a seven-game losing streak with their 102-80 victory Friday, when Nene and Gortat combined for just 15 points.Lopez scored 26 points off the bench in that game and had 13 by halftime of this one. But the Wizards held him to two points after the break and turned around the game with an 18-2 run in the third quarter.Tonight obviously they came in here a little bit more desperate knowing that we went into Washington last night and got a win. We knew we were going to get their best shot today but I thought we played great, Nets forward Joe Johnson said. I just think down the stretch we couldnt get stops and we couldnt make the shots to get us over the hump.The Nets led 51-50 after a close first half in which neither team led by more than five. A good start to the third quarter had them ahead 63-56 five minutes into the period. But Nene and Gortat began wearing them down, scoring 10 straight to go ahead 66-63 when Nene dunked forcefully between Kevin Garnett and Lopez.Jack stopped the run with a basket, but Washington answered with eight more in a row to build a 74-65 advantage on Rasual Butlers basket.Brooklyn tied it at 81 early in the fourth before Seraphin had two baskets and Humphries another in an 8-2 burst that made it 89-83 midway through the period, and Nene had a three-point play about 3 minutes later after the Nets had cut it to three.The backcourt of John Wall and Beal gets most of the attention, but Gortat said people shouldnt forget how good Washingtons forwards are.I dont really pay attention to what people think about our team and stuff like that, Humphries said. For me its just doing what weve got to do. We lost last game so this was a must-win for us.TIP-INSWizards: Paul Pierce received a mixed reception when he was announced with the Washington starters. The veteran forward played last season for the Nets before signing with Washington in July. ... Washington improved to 23-1 overall and 8-0 on the road when holding opponents to less than 100 points.Nets: Lopez got two points he didnt really deserve in the first quarter when Gortat tipped a missed free throw by Mason Plumlee into his own basket. Lopez got credit as the closest Nets player. ... Garnett, playing both ends of a back-to-back for one of the few times this season, had eight points and 10 rebounds. He fell to 10-9 against Pierce, his former teammate in Boston and Brooklyn.HALFWAY THEREBoth teams reached the midpoint of their seasons Saturday. While Washington is 28-13 and one of the top teams in the East, Brooklyn is a disappointing 17-24 but still in playoff position.Well, in the first 41 we didnt win enough games, coach Lionel Hollins said, and in the second 41 I hope we win a lot more.UP NEXTWizards: Host Philadelphia on Monday.Nets: Visit Sacramento on Wednesday.
