They'll be back at it on Saturday night in London, the second regular season game in Europe ever.  Following the Nets' second biggest scoring game of the season, they'll want to build on that confidence and start winning streaks in so many ways.  Although the game was filled with many positives, one leaped out: Deron Williams' ability to take over a game and make it his own. At the beginning of the third quarter, D-Will decided it was time and the result was 69 second half points, including the 14 he scored.

For the Raptors, who have dropped behind the Nets in the division standings, it will be a chance to redeem themselves and prove, among other things, that they can hit a three pointer with regularity (they were 2 for 10); play defense (the Nets shot 56% overall and 39% from deep) and rebound (Nets dominated the boards).  Two players are unlikely to suit up Saturday, Alexis Ajinca and Anthony Morrow. Both left Friday's game in the second quarter and did not return. Like Friday's game, Saturday's is a sellout and a Nets' home game.
