CLEVELAND — Devin Harris scored a season-high 31, Kris Humphries added 13 and 18 rebounds in his first start and the New Jersey Nets snapped a five-game losing streak by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 95-87 on Wednesday night for their first road win.

Anthony Morrow added 21 points — 15 on 3-pointers — as the Nets bounced back after losing to the Cavs on Tuesday at home. New Jersey won despite not having starting forward Troy Murphy and shooting just 19 of 35 from the free-throw line.

J.J. Hickson scored 15 to lead Cleveland, which led by 11 in the third but went cold down the stretch and had its winning streak stopped at three.

The Cavs also lost guard Mo Williams in the third quarter because of a groin strain.
