Nets Storm By Raptors in Fourth

New, comments

This comeback wasn't quite as dramatic as the last one, but the Nets came from behind in Toronto once again to end their three-game slide with a 94-87 win over the Raptors. Toronto started out hot and led 16-2 early on, but the Nets' bench got them back in the game and it was tied at halftime. The Nets took a brief lead in the third before the Raptors answered with a 13-0 run to go up 10 late in the period. But Toronto missed their next 16 shots from the field and Devin Harris came to life to lead the Nets on a 28-4 run to go up 14 with less than three minutes to go. The Raptors made a late charge to cut it down to five, but couldn't get any closer than that. Ryan Anderson led the Nets with 21 points on 6-of-11 shooting, adding nine boards. Devin Harris and Vince Carter had 20 apiece, with 16 of Harris' coming in the fourth. Trenton Hassell scored just four points, but was a game-high +22 in 33 minutes. The Nets shot just 38 percent from the field, but grabbed 18 offensive boards, outrebounding the Raptors 54-38 overall.
