OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Jarrett Jack scored 23 points off the bench to help the Brooklyn Nets defeat the Oklahoma City Thunder 94-92 on Friday night and snap a five-game losing streak.
Reggie Jackson, who led the Thunder with 21 points, missed what would have been a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer. The Thunder lost their fifth straight and have the league’s second-longest losing streak.
Joe Johnson scored 17 points, Brook Lopez had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Mirza Teletovic added 13 points for the Nets.
Serge Ibaka had 16 points and 10 rebounds, Anthony Morrow had 11 points and Steven Adams added 10 for the Thunder.
The Thunder, besieged by injuries all season and at times limited to eight active players, finally got some depth. Andre Roberson started after playing limited minutes the previous game and missing the seven games before that with a left foot sprain. Thunder coach Scott Brooks used 10 players in the first half, and Oklahoma City led 53-49 at the break.
