#Cavs 95, Nets 91: Cavs grind out victory over Brooklyn, as Mike Miller shines in first start. clevelandcavaliersblog.blogspot.com/2014/12/game-2…
Thing about that end of game play is Nets had the shot they wanted -- Joe Johnson at top of the key -- but he couldn't catch it cleanly.
I like not calling a timeout there. Doesn't allow the defense to get set. Nets just didn't execute.
LeBron (22 pts) mostly in cruise but got it done when it mattered. Cavs top Nets 95-91. Mike Miller 7 threes for 21 pts. Joe Johnson 26.
Can’t believe the Nets didn’t call a timeout there once the transition look didn’t work out.
Good call by Lionel Hollins to let the Nets play there, but the result didn't quite work out the way they hoped.
All things considered, Nets have played pretty well tonight.
Mason Plumlee is the Nets’ best player tonight.
As Avery Johnson would say, the Nets are battling.
Nets going with Darius Morris, Sergey Karasev, Joe Johnson, Brandon Davies and Mirza Teletovic to start the fourth.
Nets managing to hang around in this one, & go into 4th trailing 74-71. Joe Johnson has 19 to lead Nets, while Mike Miller has 21 for Cavs.
LeBron, Love and Irving are a combined 8/31 and the Nets are shooting 48%. Yet it's a 2-point game thanks to Mike Miller
Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and LeBron James are all playing poorly and the Nets are losing by one.
Deron Williams with a strained right calf. Will not return. Nets playing fine without him.
Former Cavs swingman Sergey Karasev has a career-high 12 points in the first half for the Nets
