Not only did the Brooklyn Nets lose to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday, they were doomed by a LeBron James game winner.
Brooklyn Nets 88 (3-13)
Cleveland Cavaliers 90 (13-4)

There was just one second remaining after LeBron James did his best Magic Johnson imitation and doomed the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night.
With the ball in his hands, the Cleveland Cavaliers top dog perfectly timed his right-side drive and turned it into a half-hook. The bucket robbed Brooklyn of their fourth win on the season.
They played tough all game long. With just over 15.2 seconds left, Joe Johnson drained three foul-shots after being fouled beyond the arc. This led to the Cavs calling timeout and getting LBJ the ball at the top of the key with all the freedom in the world to work with.
James finished with 26 points. Brook Lopez finished as the high man for the Nets (22 points).
Up next for Brooklyn will be the Detroit Pistons at the Barclays Center on Sunday night.
