    The Pistons let a 14-P/1st-H lead
slip away and lost for the first time
this season Friday night at New Jersey,
    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 fell to 4-&-1 while New Jersey evened its record at 2-&-2 by posting its
first home win.


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."


    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.
