Okafor, Felton Combines for 43, Downs New Jersey Nets

The New Jersey Nets continue to struggle in their home turf as the visiting Charlotte Bobcats handed them another loss at IZOD Center. Bobcats defeated the Nets 95-87 behind Raymond Felton’s 22 points. Emeka Okafor added 21 points, 9 rebounds and two blocks.

New Jersey’s Vince Carter and Devin Harris both struggled in the game. Carter finished the game with only 19 points on 8-21 shooting while Harris only had 14 points on 4-15 shooting.

The addition of Boris Diaw and Raja Bell into their rotation is showing some glimpse of hope for the Bobcats as they won 4 of last five outings. Bell hit all three attempts from the long-distance and finished with 9 points. Diaw chipped in 16 points, 8 rebounds and seven assists.

The Nets are now 5-11 at IZOD Center this season and 14-15 overall while the Bobcats are 11-19.
