Nets Vs. Cavaliers Final Score: New Jersey Hangs On For 122-117 Overtime Victory

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Antwan Jamison scored a game-high 34 points, but New Jersey Nets forward Gerald Green nearly matched him with 32. The effort was good enough to help the Nets pull out a slim 122-117 overtime victory Sunday at the Prudential Center. The results made New Jersey winners of six of its last nine games, while Cleveland is 1-11 in its last 12 games.

In overtime, the Nets used a small 6-0 run to push a 113-112 lead to 119-112 with 1:49 to play. The spark would be enough to hang. Anthony Morrow scored 24 points, while Kris Humphries added 16 and 11 rebounds.

Lester Hudson netted 26 points for the Cavaliers, who went 12-for-24 from behind the 3-point arc. Alonzo Gee tallied 22 points and collected 11 rebounds.
