Nets Fall to Cleveland Down the Stretch

The Nets came back from a 9 point halftime deficit to take an early lead over the Cavs in the 3rd quarter. The teams then played tight basketball the rest of the way, but Cleveland was able to execute down the stretch, and Lucious Harris put his former team away with a 3 pointer with 6 seconds to go. Richard Jefferson and LeBron James led their teams with 27 points each, and Jason Kidd played 20 minutes for the Nets, scoring 10 points and dishing out 2 assists.
