New Jersey Nets guard Anthony Morrow (22) and Washington Wizards guard Jordan Crawford (15) chase the ball during the first half of an NBA basketball game, Monday, Dec. 26, 2011, in Washington.

WASHINGTON — Kris Humphries shrugged off loud booing to finish with 21 points and 16 rebounds, and Deron Williams had 23 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, helping the New Jersey Nets beat the Washington Wizards 90-84 Monday night in the season opener for both teams.

The Nets trailed by as many as 21 points in the second quarter, but began to turn things around with a 16-2 run.

John Wall, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft, had 13 points, eight rebounds and six assists, but he only shot 3 for 13. Backup shooting guard Nick Young led Washington with 16 points in just 18 minutes. He missed a large part of the second half after jamming his left foot, but returned.
