C.J. Watson scored 16 points and Deron Williams added 12 as the Nets won for the first time since Nov. 30 at Orlando.

Former Raptors Reggie Evans and Kris Humphries both had big games for the Nets. Evans had nine points and 11 rebounds, while Humphries scored 11 points, making nine of 10 free throws.

Brooklyn bounced back one day after blowing a 17-point lead and losing 100-97 to the rival Knicks when New York’s Jason Kidd hit a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 24 seconds left.

Leading 68-64 to begin the fourth, Johnson and Watson sandwiched 3-pointers around a jump shot by Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan, putting the Nets up 74-66.
