Third Quarter is the Difference as Raptors Take Care of Nets

The Nets completed their Atlantic Division schedule against Toronto at the Izod Center on Saturday night. And they did it with the fewest division wins (three) they've had since they came to the NBA. They led the struggling Raptors by three at halftime, but Toronto outscored them 32-19 in the third quarter to turn the game around. The Raptors led by as many as 14 points in the fourth before cruising to a 10-point win. Chris Bosh scored 15 of his game-high 36 points in that third quarter. Devin Harris led the Nets with 22 points and seven assists, but his team shot just 40 percent from the field.

In his first game since missing six games with an ankle injury, Yi Jianlian had 9 points, 5 rebounds and two blocks.  Brook Lopez had his best offensive game in a week, putting up 18, 13 and 5 while Terrence Williams continued his strong play.  He had 13, 8 and 4, near what's been averaging over the last 10.
