Nets Roll to Win Over Raptors
Kris Humphries had 16 points and a career-high 21 rebounds to lead the New Jersey Nets to a 98-84 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.
Former D-League star Gerald Green tied his season high by scoring 20 of his 26 points in the second half as the Nets snapped a two-game losing streak. Anthony Morrow added 15 points for New Jersey, which shot 48 percent from the field.
James Johnson and Jerryd Bayless had 16 points apiece for Toronto, which was limited to 38 second-half points, including 15 in the third quarter when the Nets took the lead.
With the NBA trading deadline on Thursday, there remained rumors that the Nets were still in the hunt for a trade to bring Dwight Howard from Orlando to New Jersey.
