The Nets were called for maybe one of the worst shooting fouls I have ever seen when Steve Novak faked his way into a foul for three shots.  He hit all three free throws and it sparked Toronto to a 14-0 run which cut the lead to 101-100 with .23  left.

Shaun Livingston then went 1-for-2 at the line and Toronto’s Amir Johnson missed a 3-point shot in the corner to end the game.

The Nets could not find a way to stop Demar Derozan for most of the night as he had 27 points through three quarters but was held scoreless in the fourth.


Mason Plumlee (nine points), Alan Anderson (six points) and Tyshawn Taylor (nine points) gave the Nets life off the bench all night long.

Joe Johnson added 21 points, six rebounds and four assists to complement Blatche.
