Nets Lose 4th Straight, Falling to Wizards

Nene had 22 points and 10 rebounds in his Washington debut, and the Wizards defeated New Jersey 108-89 Wednesday night in a game marred by the third-quarter ejections of Nets’ All-Star point guard Deron Williams and head coach Avery Johnson.

Williams and Johnson were tossed by referee Josh Tiven with 5:18 left in the third quarter for arguing a non-call on a Williams’ drive to the basket seconds earlier. Tiven appeared to call all four technical fouls, getting Williams first and then the coach after his best player was ejected.

Jordan Crawford added 23 points and John Wall had 12 points and eight assists for Washington.

Williams had 17 for the Nets, who have lost four in a row. Kris Humphries added 13 points and 16 rebounds.
