The Brooklyn Nets defeated the Portland Trail Blazers, 98-85, on Sunday at Barclays Center.

Despite trailing after each of the first two quarters on Sunday, the Nets fought back and eventually dominated the final quarter to claim a relatively easy victory over the Trail Blazers. The comeback began in the third quarter as the teams traded baskets throughout period until the horn sounded with the teams tied at 70 points apiece. Portland's shooting grew cold in the fourth quarter and the Nets were able to begin to pull away with seven minutes to play.

Brooklyn's Joe Johnson led all scorers with 21 points. Deron Williams (15 points, 12 assists) and Kris Humphries (14 points, 10 rebounds) both recorded double-doubles for the Nets. Wesley Matthews paced the Trail Blazers with 20 points in the loss.

The Nets (8-4) will play the Knicks (9-3) in their next game on Monday at Barclays Center.
