Oklahoma City, OK (SportsNetwork.com) – Reggie Jackson’s last-second 3-pointer
rimmed out, and the Brooklyn Nets survived with a 94-92 win over the Oklahoma
Brooklyn trailed by 10 late in the third quarter, but a 12-0 run that extended
into the fourth made it a 76-74 game. A 10-0 run later in the fourth gave the
Nets a seven-point lead, but Jackson and the Thunder mounted a final rally.
Jackson scored six of Oklahoma City’s last nine points, with Anthony Morrow
supplying the other three on a triple with just under two minutes to play.
Jackson’s layup with 5.5 seconds left made it 93-92, and Joe Johnson split a
pair of free throws at the other end.
Out of a timeout, Jackson isolated at the top of the key and pulled the
trigger, only to have his potential game-winner fall out. Kevin Garnett
secured the rebound, and the game.
Jarrett Jack scored a game-high 23 off the bench to lead the Nets, who snapped
a five-game losing skid. Deron Williams and Brook Lopez supplied 17 and 16,
Jackson’s 21 points and eight assists weren’t enough for OKC, which lost for
the fifth straight game.
