Game Story

EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- Playing without leading scorer Keith Van Horn, the New Jersey Nets managed one of their best offensive performances of the year but still suffered a 109-99 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Shawn Kemp scored 26 points and Brevin Knight added 17 for the Cavaliers, who outscored the Nets 20-10 over the final six minutes to post their sixth win in eight games. Cleveland also swept all three games from the Nets this season.

After Jayson Williams sank 1-of-2 free throws with 6:16 remaining to pull the Nets even at 89-89, Derek Anderson drilled a 3-pointer 18 seconds later to put Cleveland ahead for good.

Stephon Marbury scored 26 points and Chris Carr contributed 19 and nine rebounds for the slumping Nets, who have dropped three straight and five of their last six games.

Van Horn, who averages 20.3 points per game, missed the game with a sprained right ankle suffered in Friday's loss to Indiana. It is the same ankle Van Horn injured last season in the preseason that forced him to miss the first 17 games.

Without Van Horn, the Nets matched their third highest offensive output of the season. New Jersey came into the contest next to last in the league in scoring at 86.2 points per contest.

Williams, who finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds, made a layup to pull the Nets within 92-91 at the 5:44 mark, but that is as close as they would get.

Johnny Newman answered Williams' basket with a 3-pointer, fueling a run of eight straight points that Knight capped with a 19-foot jumper that pushed the lead to 100-91 with 3:04 to play.

"They (the Nets) passed the ball, made open shots and they hustled and they played very, very hard," Cleveland coach Mike Fratello said. "They got themselves back in the game and it wound up being a 10-minute game down the stretch."

A former New Jersey high school star, Knight hit 8-of-15 shots from the floor and also handed out five assists.

"You always feel good to come home and play well," Knight said. "You try not to think about it, but it's always in the back of your mind. You have a lot of people in the stands watching you play, wanting to see you do well and you want to go out and play well."

Kemp anchored the inside game, making 7-of-14 shots as the Cavs shot 51 percent (37-of-73). Kemp also did some damage from the free throw line, hitting 12-of-17 attempts. As a team, the Cavs converted 30-of-45 foul shots.

Knight scored eight of his points in the first quarter, helping the Cavs take a 32-27 lead. Cleveland opened the second period on a 13-5 spurt, capped by Newman's lay-in to take their biggest lead at 45-32 with 7 1/2 minutes to play before intermission.

New Jersey answered the Cavs' surge with their a 13-6 run to draw within 51-45 following Lucious Harris' driving layup with 3:02 left before the half. The Nets trailed 59-53 at intermission.

The Cavs maintained their lead in the third quarter and held an 80-77 advantage heading into the final 12 minutes.

Jamie Feick, making his first start, added 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Nets, who shot 47 percent (28-of-60) and held a 35-30 edge on the boards.

Marbury collected six assists but also finished with seven of New Jersey's 18 turnovers.

"We're playing hard and the guys are playing like professionals," Marbury said. "We haven't worked on our rotations, so it's hard. You're playing off instincts and when you play like that you're going to give up points."
