Nets 95, Cavs 87: Harris Helps Halt Slide

The New Jersey Nets put an end to their five game losing streak Wednesday night with a 95-87 win over the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

Devin Harris poured in a season-high 31 points and dished out nine assists to help the Nets prevent a two-game sweep by Byron Scott's Cavs.  Harris got help inside and out from Anthony Morrow (21 points, 5 of 8 from 3-point-range) and Kris Humphries (game-high 18 rebounds).

For the second time in as many days, the Cavaliers were lead by J.J. Hickson, who put up 15 points.  Cleveland's bench was solid again, outscoring the Nets reserves 44-21 but it wasn't enough to stretch their winning streak to four.

New Jersey found themselves in a 11-point hole in the second half, but they were able to come all the way back by thanks to some clutch shooting and solid defense.  The Nets held Cleveland to just 35 points in the second half while Jordan Farmar kicked off an 8-0 run with a three that followed a monster dunk by Hickson.

Injuries forced the Nets to play without starting forward Troy Murphy (foot) and super sub Terrence Williams (abdominal strain).  Meanwhile, center Brook Lopez continued to look lost and spent most of the game on the bench, logging only 19 minutes.

New Jersey returns to action Saturday night when the Orlando Magic visit the Prudential Center in Newark.
