Nets Snap Warriors’ Streak with Home Win


Bruce Bennett/Getty Images(BROOKLYN) — The Golden State Warriors were on the verge of completing the first 7-0 road trip in NBA history, but the Brooklyn Nets had other plans, snapping Golden State’s 10-game winning streak with a 102-98 triumph at home on Wednesday night.

The Nets (14-21) trailed by one going into the fourth quarter, but Kevin Garnett scored 11 of his 13 points in final frame to lead Brooklyn to their fourth straight victory. Garnett also stole a pass from Stephen Curry with 12 seconds left and the Nets ahead by three.

Golden State (24-14) was seeking a franchise-record 11th straight win and the first undefeated road trip of seven or more games in league history. The Warriors led 93-89 with just over four minutes remaining in the contest after Klay Thompson hit a three. The team would not hit another basket until Curry’s jumper with 5.8 seconds to play.

Curry had 34 points in the loss while Joe Johnson contributed a season-high 27 points for Brooklyn.
