NEW YORK (AP) -- Deron Williams had 26 points and 10 assists, Joe Johnson scored 25 points, and the Brooklyn Nets beat the road-weary Cleveland Cavaliers 114-101 on Tuesday night for their third straight victory.
Brook Lopez added 23 points for the Nets, who opened a 20-point lead at home for the third straight game, but this time barely let up and beat the Cavaliers for the sixth time in eight meetings after losing nine in a row, mostly during the LeBron James era.
Anderson Varejao scored a career-high 35 points and grabbed 18 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who were wrapping up a six-game, coast-to-coast trip and played much of the game with the urgency of a team that wanted to be home.
They haven't played there since Nov. 2, their second game of the season, and dropped the final four games of the trip to finish 1-5.

“Anderson Varejao scored 35 points and grabbed 18 rebounds last night in a loss to the Nets. It feels crazy to write that, because Varejao isn’t the kind of center you...
The trading block is a beautiful thing in the mind of a basketball writer. Just remember, once you’re on our trading block, you will not be taken off until you are dealt. At least, that’s the perception. Until Kevin Martin got traded to Oklahoma City, I’ve seen at least 12 different trades involving him. Clippers backup point guard Eric Bledsoe has gain heavy trade momentum...
Anderson Varejao started this game on fire, setting the tone for what would be a monster game for him. He ends this one with a career high 35 points and added 18 rebounds to go with it. Kyrie Irving was huge in the 2nd half and he finished with 34 points of his own to go with his 8 assists. It wouldn’t be enough for the Cavaliers, though.
The Cavaliers were actually winning after...
About the only thing Anderson Varejao didn’t do yesterday was win. As his Cavaliers got dismantled in Brooklyn, Varejao (along with his teammate Kyrie Irving, who scored a career-high 34 points) refused to go down without a fight. By the time the final buzzer put an end to his boisterous 37-minute outing, Varejao had scored 35 points, collected 18 rebounds, doled out 3 assists...
Nights like this are gonna happen, but that doesnt make them enjoyable or easier to handle.
The verdict: Brooklyn 114, Cavaliers 101 on Tuesday in a game that was only close when it didnt really seem to matter.
This was the Cavs first visit to the new Barclays Center, and the only people who seemed willing to get the most out of the experience were Anderson Varejao and (who else...
In the NBA, we have a tendency to overrate some of the games biggest stars. That may be what the Brooklyn Nets have done with Deron Williams.
Now, make no mistake, Williams is an All-Star. He can win games for you from the point guard position. But hes probably not a No. 1 option, even if the Nets try to promote him as such. Or more accurately, hes probably not a No...
Anderson Varejao. Daniel Gibson. Alonzo Gee.
These three names would be the only ones that a visually preturbed Scott would list off following his team’s recent loss to the Brooklyn Nets, one which included a solid first quarter coupled with three quarters of defense that would best replicate that of the All-Star game or an And1 mixtape. A young roster, full of upside and excitement...
NEW YORK — Brook Lopez continues to validate the Nets’ reasoning for why they chose to keep him in lieu of giving away the store for Dwight Howard in the offseason.

Brooklyn's Deron Williams has long been considered one of the NBA's elite point guards. Second-year pro Kyrie Irving is quickly making his claim for the same status with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
When the two square off Tuesday night in Brooklyn, the Nets hope Williams' starting backcourt mate can start playing up to expectations, while the Cavaliers are looking for better...
The Brooklyn Nets (4-2) beat the Cleveland Cavaliers (2-6), tonight at the Barclays Center from Brooklyn, NY.
What a great start to a new era in the borough of Brooklyn for the Nets. They are off to a 4-2 start to the regular season.

Any financial planner worth his salt would caution you to diversify and would advise that the worst thing you can do is try to time the market. I happen to agree. I believe trying to construct an NBA team in OKC’s image under the new CBA is the NBA version of trying to time the market. When you really think about it it really is a crap shoot. Be bad, hit on your...
