Mookie Blaylock's baseline jumper with less than a second left gave the New Jersey Nets a 116-114 win over the Phoenix Suns last night and ended their NBA-record 34-game losing streak on the road.
Blaylock finished with a season-high 26 points, while Reggie Theus had 24. Chris Morris scored 19 and Derrick Coleman 17 for the Nets, who hadn't won on the road since December against Miami.
Tom Chambers scored a season-high 39 points for Phoenix and Kevin Johnson had 21.
The Suns, trailing 41-26 in the second quarter and 85-69 with four minutes left in the third, closed to 91-86 entering the fourth. They took a 97-96 lead on Jeff Hornacek's layin with 8:25 to play.
Johnson's two free throws with 10 seconds left forged a tie at 114 before Blaylock took an inbounds pass, drove the length of the court and swished his jumper from the right baseline with .3 seconds left.
Sam Bowie blocked an attempted inbounds pass by Phoenix's Dan Majerle at the buzzer.
The Nets, who had been 0-6 on the road this season, broke the Baltimore Bullets' 36-year-old record of 33 straight road losses on Wednesday night vs. the Los Angeles Clippers.
