The New Jersey Nets will try to finish up their trip to London with a sweep of their two-game series against the Toronto Raptors Saturday at the o2 Arena, the NBA's first ever regular season games in Europe.
Deron Williams picked up his first win since being traded to New Jersey on Friday with an impressive 116-103 victory over the Raptors. The win also snapped a six-game losing streak that dated back to before the trade deadline.
Brook Lopez carried the offensive burden for New Jersey, scoring 25 points, while Kris Humphries had 18 and a game-high 17 rebounds. Williams added his third straight double-double with the Nets, with 16 points -- 14 in the second half -- and 11 assists.
New Jersey lost Anthony Morrow after he hit his head on the floor and do not expect him to suit up on Saturday.
The Raptors were led by DeMar DeRozan's 30 points on 12-of-19 shooting. Andrea Bargnani scored 23 and Ed Davis had 12 and 8 rebounds off the bench.
Once they are done in London, the Nets make the long trip back to the Garden State to continue their "homestand" against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night.
