COURTNEY'S RETURN GIVES BOOST TO NETS


COURTNEY'S RETURN GIVES BOOST TO NETS DENVER - Courtney Lee was back on the game floor for the Nets after straining his left groin Nov. 6 and missing seven full games. He felt no pain.

At least not the physical kind.

"It was painful to watch," Lee said of the Nets' 101-87 loss to the Nuggets, the team's 14th straight, three shy of the tying the all-time worst NBA start and two short of the franchise's all-time losing streak.

"But there was no [physical] pain," said Lee, who played 22 minutes, scored seven points, had six steals and shot 2-of-7. "It felt pretty good. I've just got to get my shape back and be comfortable again out there."

If Lee wanted to test a groin strain, this was a team to do it against. The Nuggets ran and ran and ran. The Nets ran, well, sometimes.

"They were pushing the ball, the intensity was there and you have to run back," said Lee, who said it is only a matter of time before he and Devin Harris are back in sync.

Time, though, is not something the Nets have in abundance, not with the season spiraling out of control.

Lee gave a glimpse of what could have been and what might be late in the first half.

The Nets were in danger of falling way too far behind - which they did eventually, of course - but for a few moments, there was hope. Lee hit two free throws. Then he stole the ball from Kenyon Martin. And he followed that with a step-back jumper. The Nets' run continued, and soon they were within six.

Soon after that they were down 20, but at least Lee showed signs.

It has to get better.

Kenyon Martin summed up the Nets' situation inn one word: "Turmoil." And then Martin, who left the Nets for the Nuggets in the summer of 2004, summed up the reason for the problems in two words: "Bruce Ratner."

"When you let people who have never played the game of Basketball make decisions, that's what you get. Bruce Ratner came in and made decisions and it affected everything from that point on. The blame for that has to go somewhere. It can't always be on the players," said Martin.
