Recap: Brooklyn vs. Portland

Brooklyn, NY (Sports Network) - The Brooklyn Nets are enjoying the new state- of-the-art Barclay's Center.

Joe Johnson netted 21 points, while Deron Williams tallied 15 points and 12 assists in the Brooklyn Nets' 98-85 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

Brook Lopez added 15 points and eight rebounds and Kris Humphries chipped in 14 points and 10 boards for Brooklyn, which has won six of its first seven home games.

The Nets went just 9-24 at home a year ago.

"You can't really compare this team to other years. It's a totally different team," Humphries said. "I think we played well in the fourth quarter and we just kept getting stops."

Wesley Matthews recorded 20 points and J.J. Hickson had 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Blazers, who opened a lengthy seven-game road trip.

"They've got four All-Stars on the court and they know how to play," Portland coach Terry Stotts said of the Nets.

A pair of Jared Jeffries free throws with 9:50 left in the fourth tied the game at 74-74, but the Nets responded with an 9-0 spurt to seize control of the contest.

C.J. Watson hit a 3-pointer, Evans sunk two free throws, Lopez had a dunk and Johnson's floater capped the run and made it 83-74 midway through the frame.

The margin swelled to as many as 14 down the stretch.

Portland led, 27-25, after a quarter of play and 50-46 at the break.

Williams poured in nine points in the third as the Nets knotted the game at 70-70 heading into the final frame.
