NEW YORK (AP) -- Joe Johnson scored 26 points, including five 3-pointers, C.J Watson added 25 points and five 3s, and the Brooklyn Nets avoided another second-half meltdown with a 119-108 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday night.

All-Star center Brook Lopez had 23 points and eight rebounds and Kris Humphries chipped in 14 points for Brooklyn.

The 119 points were a season high for the Nets. They also tied a season-high with 16 3-pointers.

Brooklyn is now 2-1 in games played without star point guard Deron Williams, who has sat out the last two games due to sore ankles.

Ty Lawson led the Nuggets with 26 points and hit all of his five 3-point attempts. Denver has lost three in a row after winning a season-high seven straight games.
