Blatche scores 24 as Nets beat Raptors 102-100

TORONTO (AP) — Andray Blatche scored 24 points, Joe Johnson had 21 and the Brooklyn Nets snapped a five-game losing streak, beating the Toronto Raptors 102-100 on Tuesday night.

Paul Pierce scored 16 points and Kevin Garnett had 12 as the Nets won for the first time since beating Phoenix on Nov. 15.

Brooklyn won for just the third time in their past nine games in Canada, getting the victory despite playing without guard Deron Williams and center Brook Lopez, both of whom are sidelined with left ankle injuries.

DeMar DeRozan scored 27 points and Kyle Lowry had 21 for the Raptors, whose two-game winning streak was snapped.

Toronto’s Amir Johnson missed a potential go-ahead 3-pointer from the corner in the final seconds, and Steve Novak was unable to tip in Johnson’s rebound as the Nets held on.
