Joe Johnson scored 27 points in the Brooklyn Nets' season-high fourth straight victory, a 102-98 win Wednesday night that ended the Golden State Warriors' winning streak at 10 games and prevented the first 7-0 trip in NBA history.
Kevin Garnett scored 11 of his 13 points, one of his best efforts in a Brooklyn uniform, in the final quarter and stole Stephen Curry's pass with the Warriors down three in the final half-minute.
Shaun Livingston made the tiebreaking free throw with 1:12 left when he appeared to get away with hooking Curry, then Johnson made four in a row.
Curry scored 34 points for the Warriors, who were bidding for a franchise-record 11th consecutive victory overall and the first unbeaten trip of seven or more games in NBA history.
