Recap


Nets 110, Thunder 93:
Brook Lopez scored seven of his 25 points in the final 4:01 and Joe Johnson poured in a season-high 33 as Brooklyn snapped Oklahoma City’s 12-game home winning streak.

Deron Williams collected 19 points and 13 assists while Kris Humphries scored 11 off the bench for the Nets, who halted a seven-game losing streak in the series.

Kevin Durant scored 27 points and Russell Westbrook added 26 and 10 assists for the Thunder, who committed 20 turnovers that led to 30 points.

Brooklyn dominated the first half, shooting 58.1 percent and getting 20 points from Johnson to take a 61-45 lead into the break. But the Nets came out cold in the second half, managing only two points in the first 4:56 of the third as Oklahoma City began to chip away.

Westbrook’s jumper cut the deficit to 76-72 heading into the final period, and Kevin Martin’s 3-pointer with 7:11 left knotted it at 85-85. The Thunder never managed to get over the hump, however, as Johnson’s jumper put Brooklyn back on top and sparked a game-ending 25-8 run.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Durant was called for a pair of technical fouls and ejected with 1:57 left after arguing with an official about an offensive foul that was called on Kendrick Perkins. … The 17-point decision marks the largest home loss of the season for Oklahoma City, which dropped to 16-3 at Chesapeake Energy Arena. … The Nets improved to 3-1 under interim coach P.J. Carlesimo.
