CLEVELAND -- Spencer Dinwiddie's jumper with 1.6 seconds left was the game winner as the Kyrie-less Brooklyn Nets win their fourth straight to take down the Cavs in a hard fought game, 108-106 at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse.

The Cavs erased a nine point deficit with just over two minutes left and Colin Sexton hit a free throw with just over 20 seconds to play to tie the game at 106.

After a strong defensive effort from the Nets forcing the Cavs into a shot clock violation, the Nets set up a play on the inbounds that gave the ball to Dinwiddie who hit the jumper from the top of the key to give the Nets the victory.

The stand out players for the Nets tonight were Spencer Dinwiddie who scored 23 points on the night and Jarrett Allen who added 22 points and grabbed 21 rebounds. The Nets move to 9-8 on the season and are about .500 for the first time.

Jordan Clarkson was the standout player for the Cavs as he poured in 23 points off the bench. Larry Nance Jr. also had a great game filling in for the injured Kevin Love, who missed his second straight game due to a sore back, had 20 points and 13 rebounds.

The Cavs have lost seven of their last eight games and will look to get back in the win column on Wednesday evening when the Orlando Magic come to town. Tip off is at 7pm.
