Nets at Cavaliers Recap: History Made

The Nets dominated the first half with 66 points and lead the game by thirty at the half. They shot 73% from the field and dished out 20 assists. MarShon Brooks was the story for the Nets making all of his 9 shots and left off with 19 points. With Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace out, the back court stepped up combining for 34 points. The Nets red hot shooting was contagious and Jerry Stackhouse caught some of it. Him and Deron Williams surprised the world with dunks. Reggie Evans grabbed 12 rebounds in the first half but his rebounding isn't even significant anymore. He has been the best in  rebounding in the league for awhile now.

Kyrie Irving and the Cavaliers were quiet in the half. The team had no rhythm and it continued into the third quarter. Irving did pick it up and finished with 16 with the game. Tyler Zeller was the only player besides Irving to score in double digits.

Brooklyn started out 4 for 14 in the quarter but picked it up after a Reggie Evans full court bounce pass that led to a Stackhouse jump shot. C.J. Watson who had a nice game followed with a three and helped the Nets push their score up to 95. Brooks cooled off but this game was still in the Nets favor.

Cleveland made an a 11 to 0 run early and decreased the lead to about twenty. However, Brooks would set a new career high in  points and assists with 25 and 7 assists. He finished with 27 points,7 assists and a block. The Nets lead stayed around 20 for the game and that enabled P.J. Carlesimo to play Kris Joseph who was recently called up from the D-League. The rest of the team was put into the game and Tyshawn Taylor made sure he scored the ball. I can't blame him for that because I'm sure it is built up frustration. Williams scored 24 and the Nets guaranteed a winning road record for the the first time in franchise history.
