Nets shooting guard Anthony Morrow will miss Monday night's game against the Bulls due to the death of his grandmother, he told reporters after Saturday night's loss to the Knicks.
"I've dedicated that 42 point game to her, Lillie Morrow RIP Granny!" Morrow tweeted.
Morrow, who had the best game of his career Friday night vs. Minnesota, said he'll return to the team on Tuesday.
• Power forward Kris Humphries fended off boos from the Garden crowd to score 20 points and grab 12 rebounds on Saturday.
"I love it," Humphries said, using the new team motto. "It motivated me."
Humphries went 5-for-9 from the field and 10-for-12 from the free throw stripe.
The Nets were at their best when he and point guard Deron Williams were working the high pick-and-roll in tandem. Humphries had 14 points and five rebounds in the third quarter.
• Point guard Jordan Farmar had 19 points off the bench. D-Will had 11 assists. Morrow scored just 11 points on 4-for-12 shooting.
