Joe Johnson scored 27 points in the Nets' season-high fourth straight victory, a 102-98 win Wednesday night that snapped the Golden State Warriors' 10-game winning streak and prevented the first 7-0 road trip in NBA history.

Kevin Garnett scored 11 of his 13 points in the final quarter and stole Stephen Curry's pass with the Warriors down three in the final half-minute.

Shaun Livingston made the tiebreaking free throw with 1:12 left when he appeared to get away with hooking Curry, then Johnson made four in a row for just enough breathing room to allow the Nets to remain unbeaten in 2014.

Curry scored 34 points for the Warriors, who were bidding for a franchise-record 11th consecutive victory. But they didn't make a field goal after Klay Thompson's 3-pointer with 4:07 remaining that gave them a 93-89 lead until Curry's jumper with 5.8 seconds to go.
