Sloppy Nets Fall In Cleveland

The Nets couldn't maintain any momentum from their solid performance in Atlanta on Friday, falling to to the Cavaliers, 98-82, in a physical and sloppy game on Sunday.

It was the Nets' fourth straight loss.

The first half was close throughout and both teams held seven-point leads in the third quarter. But the Cavs caught fire from the perimeter, led by six heading into fourth and blew the game open in the final 12 minutes.

The teams combined for 44 turnovers, with Nets guards Deron Williams, Sundiata Gaines and Anthony Morrow accounting for 15 of them. The Nets got to the line 28 times, but shot just 38 percent from the field. Cleveland, on the other hand, shot 16-for-26 from 3-point range.

Williams led the Nets with 16 points, but made just six of his 16 shots. Five other Nets finished in double-figures, but MarShon Brooks went scoreless in 12 minutes.
