NEW YORK -- The Road Warriors run is over. [url=http://www.atlantafalconsfootballstor

NEW YORK -- The Road Warriors run is over. Custom Falcons Jerseys . The Brooklyn Nets are suddenly the NBAs hottest team. Joe Johnson scored 27 points in the Nets season-high fourth straight victory, a 102-98 win Wednesday night that snapped Golden States 10-game winning streak and prevented the first 7-0 road trip in NBA history. Kevin Garnett scored 11 of his 13 points, one of his best efforts in a Brooklyn uniform, in the final quarter and stole Stephen Currys pass with the Warriors down three with 12 seconds left as the Nets overcame an early 16-point hole. "They came out and gave us a big blow in the first quarter. I thought we kept our composure and then fought back," said Garnett, who was in double figures for just the sixth time this season. "Thats a very good team that we played tonight and a very good team that we beat tonight." Shaun Livingston made the tiebreaking free throw with 1:12 left when he appeared to get away with hooking Curry, then Johnson made four in a row for just enough breathing room to allow the Nets to remain unbeaten in 2014 and climb into eighth place in the Eastern Conference. Curry scored 34 points for the Warriors, who were bidding for a franchise-record 11th consecutive victory overall and the first unbeaten road trip of seven or more games in NBA history. But they didnt make a field goal after Klay Thompsons 3-pointer with 4:07 remaining that gave them a 93-89 lead until Currys jumper with 5.8 seconds to go. "Certainly a tough loss," Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. "Disappointed that we did not finish it the right way. Give them credit. It was a great job by them, but we will not lose sight of the fact that we were 6-1 on this road trip." Brooklyn scored nine straight points after Thompsons basket as fans stood across the final minutes of one of the Nets most spirited efforts of the season -- some taunting director and Knicks fan Spike Lee, who sat courtside wearing a hat in the Nets black-and-white colours but read "KNICKS." "We got down, but we didnt give in," said Andray Blatche, who had 17 points off the bench. "We continued to fight and we closed it out." Livingston finished with 13 points for the Nets, playing without point guard Deron Williams after he underwent treatment for both ankles this week. They will try to wrap up a perfect homestand Friday against Miami. The Nets snapped a winning streak of 10 or more games for the third time in their NBA history, having ended Detroits 11-game run on Jan. 31, 2006, and the SuperSonics 12-game streak on Nov. 21, 1982, in Seattle. David Lee scored 20 points for the Warriors, who ran out of gas just shy of the record books and had to settle for their second 6-1 road trip in the last two years. Their trip started on Dec. 29 in Cleveland, and included an impressive victory at Miami, but perhaps left the Warriors with too little left after a 101-80 win at Milwaukee on Tuesday. "Its a long road trip, but you cant let that be an excuse for how the game ended," Curry said. "Weve got to find a way to win." Golden State made its first four 3-pointers in racing to a 20-10 lead, and it was 32-16 after Harrison Barnes 3-pointer made the Warriors 13 of 17 from the field and 5 of 6 behind the arc. But Mirza Teletovic and Johnson hit 3s before the period ended and the Nets forced Golden State to miss six straight shots to generate some momentum. Brooklyn then surged ahead late in the second with a 14-4 run, and brought a 59-52 lead to the locker room on Teletovics 3 that beat the buzzer. "We just kept playing," Livingston said. "I think we locked in. I mean, we were playing good D. They hit some shots, they came out guns blazing." Livingstons dunk gave Brooklyn a 67-56 lead with 6:46 left in the third, but the Nets managed just eight free throws the rest of the period. Barnes 3-pointer with 32 seconds left gave the Warriors a 76-75 lead to take to the fourth. Notes: The Nets won for the first time in seven games on Wednesdays this season. ... Jackson was born in Brooklyn, while Nets coach Jason Kidd grew up in the Bay Area and used to attend Golden State games. Kidd called Jackson, also a former point guard who became an NBA head coach without any coaching experience, a "role model" and both said they have talked during the season as Kidd makes that transition now.

The Thunder earned the Game 1 win with a 100-86 victory Saturday night. Oklahoma City dominated the first half and led by 22 at the break, but saw its lead shrink to just two points in the fourth quarter. The Thunder pulled away late once the defensive intensity picked up on the OKC end. "In the third quarter, our defense wasnt as aggressive, but give them credit. They came out when they were down a big number, they came out better," said Thunder coach Scott Brooks. "We didnt get the stops in the third that allowed us to play at our pace, but we responded and had a very good fourth quarter." Kevin Durant finished with 33 points, eight rebounds and seven assists to lead the Thunder. Durant scored 13 points on 5-of-6 shooting over the final 12 minutes. Russell Westbrook added 23 points, 10 rebounds and five assists and Serge Ibaka had 17 points, nine rebounds and four blocks in the win. Zach Randolph paced the Grizzlies with 21 points and 11 rebounds while Mike Conley and Marc Gasol finished with 16 points apiece. Conley added 11 assists in the setback. "It was an interesting game. They came out with a lot of force like we anticipated. They played with a lot of force, went to the rim and got out in transition," said Grizzlies coach David Joerger. "We did a good job managing our turnovers, but to allow them to get 21 points on fastbreak points is just way too many for us. Ito Smith Falcons Jersey. " Memphis scored the first six points of the third and had the lead to single digits, 60-51, following Tony Allens three-point play with 7:17 remaining in the third. A pair of Ibaka free throws just over a minute later pushed the Thunders spread back to 11, but the Grizzlies scored six straight to make it 64-59 with 3:49 to go. The teams traded baskets and OKC took an eight-point edge, but Randolphs layup in the closing seconds of the third made it 69-65 entering the final frame. Mike Millers first points of the game came with 8:46 when he nailed the 3- pointer that made it a two-point game. Durant then drew in a trio of defenders as he slashed to the hoop and dropped the ball off to Ibaka, who slammed it home as he was fouled. Ibaka sank the free throw and OKC went 3-for-4 from the free throw line to make it 80-72. Durant nailed a cold-blooded trey with 7:16 left to open a 10-point lead and the Grizzlies never got within single digits the rest of the way. "We never broke, we did a great job staying together," Westbrook said. The Thunder outscored the Grizzlies 32-13 in transition, despite forcing just six turnovers. OKC was 28-for-32 from the free throw line while Memphis finished a hideous 18-for-31 from the charity stripe. Memphis won the battle of the paint, 50-34, but was outrebounded 51-41. Grizzlies starting forward Tayshaun Prince played just under five minutes on Saturday due to illness. He is expected to be back in the starting lineup on Monday. Game 3 is scheduled for Thursday night in Memphis.
