(NEW YORK) — The Brooklyn Nets keep rolling along with their interim coach at the helm.
The Nets won their seventh straight game by defeating the Toronto Raptors 113-106 on Tuesday night at the Barclays Center.
Joe Johnson scored 21 points, while Brook Lopez added 22 points and nine rebounds for the Nets, who extended their record to 9-1 under interim coach P.J. Carlesimo.
“We’re just kind of feeding off each other, man. We’re in a nice rhythm right now and hopefully we can keep it this way,” Johnson said. “It’s a lot of fun to watch and I’m sure guys are having a great time in this locker room.”
Brooklyn (23-15) used a 10-2 run to open up the fourth quarter to pull away from the Raptors, who committed 13 turnovers. “We just uncharacteristically lost it, turned the ball over and every time we did they scored on it,” Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. “I thought it was the difference in the game.”
