Nets No Match for Cavs

New, comments

It was the best team vs. the worst at the Izod Center on Wednesday, and it looked like it for most of the night. The Nets kept the game close for just a few minutes before a 21-4 Cavs run made it an early blowout. The Nets climbed back a bit late in the third quarter and cut the lead to as little as 11 midway through the fourth, but that would be as close as they got. The Nets shot just 39 percent from the field and turned the ball over 17 times. Brook Lopez led them with 21 points and 14 rebounds, Yi Jianlian also had a double-double, and Terrence Williams had a strong game off the bench, finishing with 21 points, five boards and seven assists. LeBron James had 26 points, seven rebounds and 14 assists for the Cavs, who finished with 25 fast break points and 62 points in the paint.
