Cleveland, OH (SportsNetwork. Danny Shelton Patriots Jersey .com) - Mike Miller scored a season-high 21 points in a rare start and the Cleveland Cavaliers bounced back from their worst loss of the season with a 95-91 win over the Brooklyn Nets. Miller hit 7-of-8 from behind the arc in his first start of the season and LeBron James scored 22 points with nine assists for Cleveland, which was coming off a 29-point home loss to Atlanta on Wednesday. Hes a professional guy, you can always count on him, James said of Miller. His ability to shoot the ball gives us so much more of a dynamic out there. Miller, who hadnt played since Dec. 4, had just 19 points in 13 games all season before Friday. Kyrie Irving chipped in 16 while Kevin Love had his worst shooting performance in a Cavs uniform, going 1-for-10 for six points. Love, however, finished with a game-high 14 rebounds. Joe Johnson led five Nets players in double figures with 26 points. Clevelands 54-49 halftime lead disappeared when the Nets opened the third with a 6-0 run. Neither team led by more than four until Shawn Marions runner early in the fourth gave the Cavs a 78-73 lead. Brooklyn got within three points twice after that. Johnsons 3-pointer with 41.8 seconds left made it 94-91 and Irving got stripped on his way to the basket at the other end, leaving the door open. The Nets pushed the ball up the floor rather than calling for a timeout, a move that ultimately backfired. Jarrett Jack passed to the top of the key to an open Johnson, who didnt catch the ball cleanly and had to swing to Kevin Garnett. The deflected pass found Garnett on the left wing, but his triple missed short. I thought theyd take the 3 away and maybe wed drive and go get a quick two then Id call timeout, said Nets coach Lionel Hollins. We were trying to get a play for Joe, and they kind of took that away. Joe found KG, and he had to take the shot. James split a pair of free throws to put the game away. Brooklyn led by as many as 11 points in the first quarter but Cleveland responded and tied the game at 35-35 early in the second. After Sergey Karasevs 3-pointer gave the Nets a 45-39 lead with 5:13 to play, in the second quarter, the Cavaliers ran off 15 straight points to climb in front for the first time. Irving scored six points during the spurt, which Anderson Varejao capped with two free throws before the Nets scored the last five points before halftime. Game Notes James passed Charles Barkley for 23rd place on the all-time scoring list ... Nets guard Deron Williams left the game in the second quarter with a strained right calf. He finished with one point and five assists ... Mason Plumlee and Jack scored 14 and 13 points, respectively, for Brooklyn ... Both teams shot 9-for-24 from 3-point range. Custom Patriots Jerseys . Left back Armero opened the scoring in the fifth minute when his deflected shot rolled past Greece goalkeeper Orestis Karnezis. Striker Teofilo Gutierrez poked in Colombias second goal from a deflected corner in the 58th and James Rodriguez capped it off with a low shot in stoppage time after a slick backheel flick from Juan Cuadrado. Cordarrelle Patterson Patriots Jersey . -- Downcast before the final game of what had been a difficult road trip, the Ottawa Senators found a way to dig out a little momentum in the desert before heading home.(SportsNetwork.com) - The New Jersey Devils hope to avoid their longest losing streak of the season when they visit the rival Pittsburgh Penguins for Tuesdays Metropolitan Division clash at Consol Energy Center. The Devils are in the midst of a four-game slide, matching their longest skids of 2014-15. New Jersey previously dropped four in a row from Oct. 16-24 and Nov. 4-10, but the club hasnt lost five straight since opening the 2013-14 campaign on a 0-4-3 losing streak. The most recent loss of New Jerseys current 0-2-2 slide came Saturday when it opened a three-game road trip against the New York Islanders. New Jersey outshot the Isles by a 35-28 margin in the game, including a 16-2 edge in shots in the third period, but lost 3-1 on the scoreboard. Jaroslav Halak frustrated the Devils offense time and again, posting 34 saves and helping to kill off all four of New Jerseys power-play chances. Damien Brunner had the only goal against Halak, while Cory Schneider allowed two goals on 27 shots in the loss. The regulation defeat dropped Jersey to 3-8-2 over its last 13 games and the Devils road mark fell to 6-8-1. We can be encouraged by it but we cant be happy or satisfied, said Schneider. The Devils were without centermen Travis Zajac and Adam Henrique on Saturday after both players were hurt in Fridays game against Detroit. Those injuries led to New Jersey signing Scott Gomez to an undisclosed contract on Monday. Gomez, who spent the first seven years of his career with New Jersey, was invited to the teams training camp on a tryout contract. He was not signed by the Devils prior to the start of the season, but continued practicing with the team waiting for an opportunity. With Zajac being placed on injured reserve Monday with a lower-body issue, and Henrique still considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury, the time was right to ink Gomez. In a 14-year career totaling 987 NHL games, Gomez has tallied 173 goals and 713 points. He spent the 2013-14 season with Florida, scoring two goals and totaling 12 points in 46 games. Gomez, a first-round pick by the Devils in 1998, is expectedd to suit up for the Devils tonight for the first time since the 2007 playoffs. Jeremy Hill Jersey. He does have skills, he knows the system, hes been practicing and well see how it goes, Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said. New Jersey, which caps its swing Thursday in Toronto, also could have defenseman Jon Merrill (arm) back tonight. Merrill hasnt played since Nov. 1. The Penguins enter Tuesday tied with the Islanders for first place in the division and have won three of their last four games. Pittsburgh fell Friday in its home half of a home-and-home series against Carolina, but rebounded from the 4-2 setback with a road victory the following night. Thomas Greiss came up with 32 saves to help the Penguins edge the Hurricanes 3-2. The Penguins supported Greiss solid effort with first-period goals by Chris Kunitz and Robert Bortuzzo, with Christian Ehrhoff netting the eventual game-winner in the third. I thought the intensity tonight, our battle level was certainly a lot higher than last night, Penguins head coach Mike Johnston said. The Pens played Saturday without forward Marcel Goc and defenseman Kris Letang after both skaters were injured in the opener against Carolina. Letang has been ruled out for tonight, while Goc is questionable. Pittsburgh owns a solid 7-3-1 record at Consol this season, but has lost two of its last three home games. This evenings test kicks off a three-game stay in the Steel City, where the Devils have lost three straight, five of six and nine of their last 11.

The Devils were outshot 33-19 in that game and surrendered a season-high in goals. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 16 shots for Pittsburgh, while Schneider surrendered five goals on 23 shots and was pulled after two periods. Schneider is expected to make his 24th start of the season tonight. He is winless (0-3-0) with a 4.15 goals against average in his career against Pittsburgh. Fleury is 18-22-4 with a 2.50 GAA in 44 lifetime appearances versus the Devils. Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Disocunt Football Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
