SAN FRANCISCO -- After coming back from 26 points down to beat the Boston Celtics on Sunday, the Golden State Warriors had no miracles left on them on Monday night.
Former Warrior Jarrett Jack drilled a contested jumper with 1.1 seconds left in regulation to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a thrilling 110-108 victory at Barclays Center.
Jack finished with only nine points and five assists but Brooklyn's All-Stars, Brook Lopez and Deron Williams, had monster nights to beat the NBA's best team. Lopez had 26 points and six boards while Williams tallied 22 points and four dimes.
Trailing 106-96 with exactly four minutes left in the fourth quarter, Golden State went on a 12-2 run to settle the score at 108 apiece. The Warriors than took ball possession with 36 ticks to go but center Andrew Bogut turned the ball, setting up Jack's game-winning shot.
Steph Curry, who sparked the Warriors' late uprising, registered 26 points while Bogut had 16 points and eight boards. Andre Iguodala contributed 12 points off the bench but Klay Thompson missed 14 of 17 field goals and was held to seven points.
Despite the loss, the Warriors kept the best record in the Western Conference, but with a 46-12 slate, they now trail the 47-12 Atlanta Hawks by a half-game for the best overall record in the NBA.
For the 25-33 Nets, the win catapulted them to eight place in the Eastern Conference, a half-game ahead of the 25-34 Indiana Pacers for the final playoffs berth in the East.
