Newark, NJ – Six Hawks scored in double figures in their 70.
Vladimir Radmanovic had a team-high 17 points, Marvin Williams chipped in 14 points and nine rebounds and Zaza Pachulia totaled 13 and 11 for the Hawks, who went 44-38 last season and advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals.
MarShon Brooks netted 17 points on the second night of a back-to-back for the Nets, who recovered from a 21-point deficit on Monday to beat the Wizards but didn't have the legs for a repeat performance.
Deron Williams had 10 points on 3-for-11 shooting and committed six of New Jersey's 18 turnovers.
This was the final home opener in New Jersey for the Nets, who move to Brooklyn next year.
