Kevin Durant scored 27 points, including the go-ahead basket late in the fourth quarter, as the visiting Brooklyn Nets rallied for a 117-112 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night.
Durant returned from sitting out Friday’s two-point win over the visiting Orlando Magic on Friday due to a minor right shoulder sprain and struggled at times on a night when the Nets overcame a 12-point deficit.
Durant hit two clutch shots in the final 3:11, including a driving layup that gave the Nets a 106-105 lead with 2:51 left after James Johnson intercepted an errant pass by Cleveland’s Darius Garland.
