Cavaliers Vs. Nets: New Jersey Pulls Away In Overtime 122-117

There will be no two-game winning streak for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but they did come close to making it two in a row on Sunday. Lester Hudson buried a three-pointer as time expired in regulation to allow the Cavs to send the game to overtime tied 109-109. Once there, it was mostly New Jersey, as the Nets outscored Cleveland 13-8 to earn a 122-117 victory.

The victory made sure that another stellar night by Antawn Jamison went for nothing, as he finished with 34 points on 12 of 19 shooting. Hudson was incredibly productive as well, scoring 26 off the bench while Alonzo Gee had 22.

It was the Nets' Gerald Green that made the difference for the Nets with 32 points off the bench. Anthony Morrow also had 24 points off the bench, as Cleveland struggled all night long to slow down New Jersey's secondary players.
