Final: Nets 99, Cavs 96

By Jason Lloyd Published: January 27, 2012

Deron Williams had 27 points and 10 assists and the New Jersey Nets have their first winning streak of the season following a 99-96 win at Cleveland on Friday.

Kris Humphries had 18 points and 11 rebounds and Anthony Morrow added 22 points for the Nets, who also won at Philadelphia on Wednesday for consecutive victories for the first time this season.

Rookie Kyrie Irving had a career high 32 points, including 21 in the fourth quarter, and Antawn Jamison had 20 for the Cavs. Cleveland scored just 37 points in the first half and trailed the entire game, although Irving's scoring flurry made the final closer than the game.

The Nets scored 11 straight points late in the second quarter to take a 47-37 lead at the half. The Cavs didn't get the deficit under 10 until the final two minutes and the Nets hit enough free throws in the final minute to keep the Cavs at arm's length.
