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.
Former Cavs swingman Sergey Karasev has a career-high 12 points in the first half for the Nets
The Cavs went on a 15-0 run after Williams got hurt.
Nets say Deron Williams has a strained right calf and will not return. Cavs lead 54-49 at half.
It might have something to do with his can't miss. Miller 5 of 6 from behind arc. Cavs' first lead, 48-45, 2 minutes left in first half
Cavaliers force turnover, try to start fast break, hit LeBron with an outlet pass in the face.
Nets lead Cavs 33-26 after 1, are getting great looks. Cavs buoyed by Mike Miller hitting 3 3’s.
Nets lead Cavs 25-21 but have made LeBron pretty mad. Will be interesting to see what develops now.
So....looks like we are going to have to add Sergey Karasev to my growing list of season-highs vs. Cavs.
Got flat on way to Cavs-Nets, security wouldn't let me in media parking and I forgot my press pass. Other than that, night's been smash hit.
