PHOENIX, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- Joe Johnson saved the game in regulation and won it in overtime with a buzzer-beating shot Friday that gave Brooklyn a 100-98 win over Phoenix.

Brooklyn ended a three-game losing streak and won on the road for the first time this year in five tries.

Phoenix took a 92-90 lead with 41 seconds to go in the fourth quarter on P.J. Tucker's 3-point shot. Johnson then tied it with 31 seconds remaining on Johnson's jumper.

Neither side had more than a three-point lead in overtime and Phoenix tied the score when Tucker made a dunk with 53 seconds left.

Brooklyn then turned the ball over and Phoenix had a chance to win it, but a 3-point try by Channing Frye with 3.9 seconds left bounced off the rim.

Johnson grabbed the rebound, drove the length of the court and floated up a layup between two Phoenix defenders.

Brook Lopez had 27 points to lead the Nets while Shaun Livingston had 18. Phoenix was paced by 19 points and 10 assists from Goran Dragic.
