"Obviously, we thought we'd be in a different position right now".

"These are big growing pains and we need to get through these", he said. Guys need to continue to fight.

"This isn't the previous four years (with LeBron James). We have to fight for everything that we've got".

The last time the Cleveland Cavaliers dropped their first four games to start a season, LeBron James was just a rookie.back in 2003.

"We've been getting punched in the face in the third quarter", Larry Nance Jr. said.

The Nets won in Cleveland for the first time since April 3, 2013, by producing a blistering third quarter that turned a 45-45 tie into an 83-62 lead.

Joe Harris put up seven of his 16 points in the third while Jared Dudley contributed nine of his 12 points in the decisive quarter.

Cavaliers: Veterans Kyle Korver and J.R. Smith came off the bench in the first quarter after not playing Sunday. "It's been a problem for us for a long time". Brooklyn hit 16 of 22 from the field in the third quarter to pull away. The way they fight and compete to stay in games will be a good metric to judge this squad.

After the game head coach Ty Lue said the first half was better but that is not enough.

"We have to be able to sustain it", Lue said.

While has averaged 20.7 points, 14.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 35.7 minutes per game through Cleveland's first three games, Love isn't exactly setting the National Basketball Association on fire with his shooting slash line of.304/.263/.821. Love had 10 points in the first half, the only Cleveland player to reach double figures in the first two quarters.

"When we get down, we've just got to keep fighting till the end", Sexton said. "That comes from heart". After a basket by Rodney Hood, the Nets ripped off 15 straight points and an 18-1 run to surge in front 68-50 with about six minutes remaining.

"Anytime you lose it's tough", said Lue, whose team plays at 3-0 Detroit tonight. If competing at a higher level for a full 48 minutes is all this team needs to do to get some victories under their belt in the forseeable future, a win may be just around the corner but that is yet to be answered. "If we're open for the 3, we have to let it go".

The Cavaliers are pretty much the worst team in the National Basketball Association right now.

After shooting 23 percent and trailing by seven through the opening quarter, Cleveland rallied to tie the game at 45 by halftime. No player for either team had more than five points.

Cleveland, which ended the quarter with a lineup of Sexton and Clarkson in the backcourt, Korver and J.R. Smith at forward and Nance at center, was 6-for-26, but the Cavs remained optimistic following another bad loss at home.
