Lowly Nets edge Rap­tors

The Prince George Citizen - - Sports -

NEW YORK (AP) — Kawhi Leonard’s short shot went in and out. Fred VanVleet’s three-pointer went around the rim and spun out.

For three and a half years, the Toronto Rap­tors had al­ways found a way to beat the Brook­lyn Nets. This time, not one, but two chances just wouldn’t fall.

That al­lowed the Nets (9-18) to snap an eight-game los­ing streak over­all and a 12-game skid against the Rap­tors with a 106-105 vic­tory in over­time on Fri­day night. D’An­gelo Rus­sell scored 29 points, in­clud­ing six in over­time, and the Nets beat the Rap­tors (21-6) for the first time since April 3, 2015.
