OAKLAND, Calif., March 31 (UPI) -- Gerald Green's layup with 48 seconds left finished off a stunning New Jersey comeback Friday and gave the Nets a 102-100 win over Golden State.

The Warriors owned a 19-point lead in the third period but collapsed down the stretch while being outscored in the fourth quarter 32-16.

New Jersey tied the contest with 2 minutes left on a free throw by Kris Humphries but David Lee's hook shot 10 seconds later put the Warriors back in front.

Green then scored on a dunk to tie it again and, after a Golden State turnover, made the layup that gave the Nets their first lead since the opening 2 minutes of the game.

A missed layup by Golden State's Brandon Rush with 35 seconds to go and a failed jump shot attempt by Charles Jenkins with 2 seconds remaining left Golden State with its fourth straight loss.

New Jersey won its second in a row in the opener of a four-game road trip.

Gerald Wallace had 24 points and 18 rebounds for the Nets. Green and Humphries added 20 each.

Golden State was led by Lee, who made 12-of-16 from the floor and tallied 27 points.
