The Washington Wizards, playing on the second night of a road back-to-back in New Jersey, trail the Nets 57-43 after one half at the Prudential Center. The Wizards shot just 39 percent from the field in the first half and could not stop the Nets on the other end. Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams lead the Nets in double-figures, and as a team, they shot 57 percent from the floor.
Washington, on the other hand, does not have a player in double figures, playing without Trevor Booker and Nene in the frontcourt yet again. John Wall finished the half with nine points but has also committed three turnovers in his tough matchup against the All-Star Williams. No other Wizard has more than five points. It's the last month of the season, and with injuries on the second night of a back-to-back, Washington is struggling to be competitive.
