With one win to their credit for the season, the Nets figured to be the last team to hand the Warriors their first defeat.

But they nearly did just that until self-destructing in the closing seconds and ultimately falling in overtime, 107-99, in Oakland on Saturday night. Steph Curry scored 34 points for the Warriors, who improved to 11-0.

Jarret Jack netted a team-high 28 for Brooklyn, which fell to 1-10.

Brook Lopez had a chance to win the game at the buzzer in regulation but his wide open look in the paint off and in-bounds pass hit off the back rim.

The Warriors then scored the first 10 points in overtime to pull away.

The Nets, who outscored Golden State 36-21 in the first quarter, took a 95-94 lead on Jack’s two free throws with 29 seconds left.

Curry missed a driving shot and the Nets rebounded but as they attempted to kill time off the clock were called for an eight-second violation. Curry threw an errant pass and Thaddeus Young (26 points) followed with two free throws to give the Nets a three-point lead with 9 second to go.

But Andre Iguodala’s clutch three before Lopez’s miss sent the game to OT.
