Johnson Scores 32, But Nets Fall to Warriors
David Lee had 30 points and 15 rebounds, Stephen Curry scored 28 points, and the Golden State Warriors gave coach Mark Jackson a winning return to Brooklyn by beating the Nets 109-102 on Friday night.
Lee scored six straight points to break open a tie game midway through the fourth quarter, and Curry had 21 in the second half for the Warriors, who won for the fifth time in six games.
Golden State improved to 2-0 on its season-high, seven-game road trip against Eastern Conference opponents, a game played not far from where Jackson became a New York City star.
Joe Johnson scored a season-high 32 points for the Nets, who dropped their season-high third straight. Deron Williams added 23 points and eight assists.
