NEW YORK >> D’An­gelo Rus­sell scored 29 points, in­clud­ing six in over­time, and the Brook­lyn Nets snapped an eight-game los­ing streak by beat­ing the Toronto Rap­tors

106-105 on Fri­day night.

Brook­lyn picked the most un­likely way to end its skid, snap­ping a 12-game slide against Toronto with its first vic­tory over the Rap­tors since April 3, 2015.

Jar­rett Allen made the go-ahead bas­ket for the Nets with a lit­tle more than a minute left, their only bas­ket in over­time not made by Rus­sell.

Kawhi Leonard scored 32 points for the Rap­tors, but Toronto couldn’t get a look for him on its fi­nal possession and had to set­tle for Fred VanVleet’s 3-pointer that just missed. SPURS 133, LAK­ERS 120 >> De­Mar DeRozan had 36 points and nine as­sists and San Antonio ral­lied to beat Los An­ge­les.

San Antonio got 14 points each from Patty Mills and Jakob Poeltl off the bench, and Davis Ber­tans added 13. The Spurs’ back­ups outscored the Lak­ers’ 52-26.

13 points and 11 as­sists for the Lak­ers. BULLS 114, THUN­DER 112 >> Lauri Markka­nen scored 24 points and drove for the go-ahead layup in the closing sec­onds to lead Chicago to its first vic­tory un­der coach Jim Boylen.

Boylen took over Mon­day when Fred Hoiberg got fired fol­low­ing a 5-19 start, and the Bulls lost the fol­low­ing night at In­di­ana in his de­but.

Ok­la­homa City’s Rus­sell West­brook had

24 points, 17 re­bounds and 13 as­sists in his

109th triple-dou­ble, though he also turned the ball over 10 times.

HOR­NETS 113, NUGGETS 107 >> Kemba Walker had 21 points, eight as­sists and six re­bounds, fel­low point guard Tony Parker added 19 points off the bench and Char­lotte snapped Den­ver’s seven-game win­ning.

Kyle An­der­son scored 19 points, in­clud­ing a key free throw for a four-point lead in the fi­nal sec­onds for the Griz­zlies, who whit­tled away at an eight-point deficit dur­ing the fi­nal five min­utes to send New Or­leans to its fourth loss in 14 home games.

HEAT 115, SUNS 98 >> Bam Ade­bayo scored a ca­reer-high 22 points, 20 in the first half, and Mi­ami opened a six-game trip by hand­ing Phoenix its eighth straight loss.

The Suns again were with­out their top two scor­ers. Devin Booker missed his third straight be­cause of a left ham­string strain, and T.J. War­ren his fifth straight with right an­kle sore­ness.
