Kyle Lowry had 20 points and 12 assists, Jonas Valanciunas added 16 points and 10 rebounds, and the Toronto Raptors used a big fourth quarter to beat the Brooklyn Nets 105-89 Wednesday night.
It’s bad enough that this Nets season appears to be headed for epic disaster, but the list of embarrassments from Tuesday night’s Heat game was so frighteningly long I don’t even know where to begin.
Joe Johnson scored 22 points, Deron Williams and Mason Plumlee had double-doubles and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Charlotte Hornets 114-87 on Saturday night for their second straight victory.
Mason Plumlee scored a season-high 18 points and had 10 rebounds, and the Brooklyn Nets broke open a close game in the fourth quarter to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 88-70 on Friday night.
