Nets snap Cavaliers' 4-game win streak with 106-98 victory

NEW YORK (AP) The Brooklyn Nets played with the intensity of a team fighting for its postseason future, and the Cleveland Cavaliers couldn't match it.

Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez each scored 20 points, and the Nets snapped the Cavaliers' four-game winning streak with a 106-98 victory on Friday night.

Bojan Bogdanovic added 18 points for the Nets, who held LeBron James to two baskets in the second half and won for the sixth time in eight games as they chase a playoff berth. They took sole possession of ninth place in the East, a half-game behind Boston for the final spot.
