The Nets blew an 18-point lead against the Clippers on Wednesday, and were almost undone by two bad perimeter fouls in the final minute. But they managed to snap their seven-game home losing streak with a 101-100 victory when Jordan Farmar hit a game-winning three-pointer with 0.2 seconds left.

Led by eight straight points from Farmar, the Nets took control with a 15-3 run spanning the first and second quarters. They led by 12 at the half and went up by as many as 18 in the third. But the Clippers climbed all the way back to tie the game with 4:34 to go in the fourth, and tied it again when MarShon Brooks fouled Randy Foye on a jumper that banked in with 38 seconds left. Anthony Morrow then missed a three, Shelden Williams fouled Chris Paul on the perimeter, and Paul put the Clippers up by two with 8.9 seconds left.

After the Clippers kicked the ball, the Nets had it out of bounds with five seconds left. It was inbounded in the backcourt to Deron Williams, who was double-teamed. He then found Farmar a few feet beyond the arc on the right side, and Farmar swished a three to put the Nets up one with 0.2 on the clock. After a timeout, the Clippers didn't get a shot off.

The Nets shot 46 percent from the field and 11-for-22 from three-point range, with six players in double-figures. Deron Williams led the way with 21 points, six rebounds and 10 assists. Brooks scored 16 of his 19 in the first half, Farmar finished with 16, and both Kris Humphries and Shelden Williams had double-doubles.
