Nets lose to the Warriors, now head out of town to Quicken Loans Arena to face the League Champs, The Cavaliers 7:30 PM ET on YES

Nets coughed up a 16 point halftime lead, lose to the warriors 117-101.
Warriors let the Nets run the show in the first half, then woke up and stamped out the comeback.

Brook Lopez led the Nets with 28 Points, and 8 rebounds. Sean Kilpatrick added 14, and Rondae Hollis Jefferson had 13 points.
Jeremy Lin didn't shoot the ball well, but had a near triple double with 10 points, 11 Assists, and 8 rebounds in 31 minutes.

The nets won't have too much time to look over this loss, as they had to Jet to Cleveland. The Cavs had a day of rest as they finished a home and home back to back sweep of the Milwaukee Bucks. This will be the first meeting this year for these two teams, with the cavs taking last season series 3-1.

Will the Nets REgroup and pull off a pre-christmas miracle? or will fate deem to extend the losing streak?
