The Nets ended a string of losing streaks on Friday, defeating the Raptors in London, the first NBA game played in Europe.  The Nets ended a six-game losing streak, a three-game losing streak with Deron Williams playing, a six-game losing streak to the Raptors and a 11-game losing streak in the Atlantic Division going back a year.

They even broke a two-game losing streak while playing overseas, having lost two games in Japan back in 1996.

Williams had his fourth straight double-double, with 16 points (14 in the second half) and 11 assists, one of two Nets with a double-double. Kris Humphries finished with 18 points and 17 rebounds.  Brook Lopez had 25 points and Damion James had his best game as a pro, with 15 points, 7 rebounds and 3 assists.  The Nets even got a boost from Sundiata Gaines, who came up with 7 and 2 in a critical stretch in the third. DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 30.

On a negative note, Anthony Morrow left the game after suffering a slight concussion and did not return. He said he has been told not to expect to play Saturday.
