Recap

Devin Harris and Anthony Morrow combined for 52 points Wednesday night and the New Jersey Nets ended a five-game losing streak with a 95-87 victory over the host Cleveland Cavaliers.

Harris set a season high with 31 points and Morrow added 21 for the Nets, who rallied from a 10-point deficit despite playing without Terrence Williams (abdominal strain) and Troy Murphy (foot).

Kris Humphries started in place of Murphy and had 13 points and 17 rebounds as New Jersey avenged a home loss to Cleveland.

J.J. Hickson scored 15 points and Antawn Jamison added 14 for the Cavaliers, who lost guard Mo Williams to a strained left adductor with 3:39 left in the third quarter. He did not return.

The strain to Williams' groin area is similar to the injury that kept him out for most of training camp and the first three games of the season. The loss snapped the Cavs’ three-game winning streak.

Jordan Farmar scored 12 points off the bench for the Nets, who held the Cavs scoreless during a critical three-minute stretch late in the fourth quarter. The Nets won despite making just 19-of-35 free throws.
 
Ramon Sessions scored 14 points and Ryan Hollins added 11 for the Cavaliers.
