NEW YORK (AP) -- Spencer Dinwiddie made the go-ahead 3-pointer with 43 seconds left while starting for the injured D'Angelo Russell, and the Brooklyn Nets overcame LeBron James' first triple-double of the season to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 112-107 on Wednesday night.
James had 29 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds in his 56th triple-double, but he missed two free throws - the second intentionally - with the Cavaliers trailing by two with 7.6 seconds remaining. DeMarre Carroll then hit a free throw and the Cavs' long inbounds pass intended for James went out of bounds.
Dinwiddie scored 22 points for the Nets, who blew a 14-point lead in the final quarter but recovered to improve to 3-2 - the same record as the defending Eastern Conference champion Cavaliers. >> Read more
