Travis Outlaw had, easily, his best game in a New Jersey Nets uniform, but his team was unable to pull out a win as the Cleveland Cavaliers won, 93-91.

Outlaw has been plagued by inconsistency in this young season, but he delivered 27 points and seven rebounds on 11-of-22 shooting, including 4-of-7 on threes.

With about a minute-and-a-half left in the game, a desperation three-point heave from Cleveland's Anthony Parker with the shot clock expiring turned out to be the difference in the game.

New Jersey led 65-63 after three quarters of play, but the Cavs scored 30 points in the fourth quarter by bombing away from downtown.

Cleveland hit 5-of-6 threes in the fourth quarter and 9-of-17 overall.

The Nets put an emphasis on playing tougher in practice this week, although it may have come at a cost with Terrence Williams suffering an abdominal strain during one of their sessions.

He did not dress for the game, and one has to believe the team would have had a much better shot at winning this tight game had he been active.

Quinton Ross took over Williams' minutes and produced just two points.
