EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ:

    The Pistons let a 14-P/1st-H lead
slip away and lost for the first time
this season Friday night at New Jersey,
103-96.
    The Nets out-scored Detroit 64-52
after intermission.
    Obtained in a big deal with Denver
on Monday, Allen Iverson made his
Detroit debut in this contest, leading
all scorers with 13-P in the opening half
and going on to score a team-high of 24-P.
    However, A-I's performance was bested
by far by Devin Harris, who scored a career-high 38-P for the Nets. Harris hit
a driving layup with 2-sec left before the half to get New Jersey within 44-39
at the break. Harris then scored NJ's first 5-P after halftime to get the
comeback started. Harris scored 32 of his 38-P after intermission with 19-P
in the 3rd-Qtr and 13-P in the 4th-Qtr.
    Harris went to work on Iverson in the turnaround 3rd-Qtr, forcing A-I into four
fouls and getting 13 of his 19-P at the free throw line (13-for-15).
    Vince Carter and Josh Boone both scored 18-P and Yi Jianlian 12-P for the Nets.    
    Rip Hamilton added 22-P, Tayshaun Prince 19-P and Rasheed Wallace 11-P for
Detroit.
    Detroit fell to 4-&-1 while New Jersey evened its record at 2-&-2 by posting its
first home win.

QUOTEBOOK...

PISTONS GD ALLEN IVERSON:   "It was a good feeling for me. I haven't been able
to play for a while so it was good to get back on the basketball court. I'll try to
get a little bit of my rust off...We had the game and we let it get away in the
second half...Overall, it was a great experience for me. I felt fine out there,
and we only can get better."

NETS PG DEVIN HARRIS:   "We have been really struggling in the third quarter
but tonight we came out with more aggressiveness. Points for me didn't matter.
It was all about the win."

OVERTIME:

    Iverson has lost his debut with each of his three NBA teams (Philadelphia, Denver
& Detroit).
    Harris went 20-for-24 from the free throw line to tie the NJ franchise record for
most charity toss attempts in a single game.
    The Nets snapped a 7-game losing skid vs the Pistons.
    Carter and Yi both fouled-out for New Jersey.
    Detroit went 2-&-1 on its eastern road trip and returns to the Palace Sunday
evening to host the team which ousted them from the playoffs last spring, the NBA
Champion Boston Celtics.
