Nets win third in a row behind Johnson’s hot hand

– Joe Johnson shook a slump by scoring 23 points against his former team, and the Brooklyn Nets matched a season high with their third straight victory by beating the Atlanta Hawks 91-86 on Monday night.

Johnson shot 10-for-22, making the go-ahead three-pointer with 6:21 remaining.

Alan Anderson added 14 points starting in place of the injured Deron Williams for the Nets, who improved to 2-0 on four-game homestand that finishes with visits from Golden State on Wednesday and Miami on Friday.

Paul Millsap scored 16 points for the Hawks, who lost their third in a row. Jeff Teague also had 16 but shot five of 15 from the field.

Williams missed his 12th game this season after his sprained left ankle swelled Sunday. He will be re-evaluated Tuesday.

HIGHLIGHTS

 

• COLLISON FILLS SHOES WELL: Darren Collison, filling in at point guard for the injured Chris Paul, made eight of 11 shots and scored a team-high 21 points with seven assists for the Los Angeles Clippers in a 101-81 home victory over the Orlando Magic. … The Clippers also signed former Lakers point guard Darius Morris to a 10-day contract.
