Nets Rally From 27 Down, But Lose

Wesley Johnson made the tiebreaking basket on a steal and dunk with 1:35 left, and the Los Angeles Lakers blew a 27-point lead before beating the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night.

Nick Young scored a season-high 26 points to spark a huge effort from the league’s most productive bench. Pau Gasol added 21 points for the Lakers, moving into second place on the NBA’s career list for points by a European player.

Wearing new black uniforms and hearing “Let’s go Lakers!” chants, the Lakers jumped on the Nets right from the start and were ahead 48-21 early in the second quarter. But the Nets fought all the way back, also behind their bench.

Joe Johnson scored 18 points after a cold finish for the Nets, who failed in their bid to win consecutive games for the first time this season.
