Recap


Brook Lopez had 34 points, a season-high 14 rebounds and a career-high eight blocks as the New Jersey Nets swept the first two regular-season games played in Europe with a 137-136 victory in triple overtime over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday in London.

Lopez fouled out with 4:14 left in the second overtime, but his replacement, Travis Outlaw, scored eight of his 14 points in the third extra session, including the go-ahead free throws with 12.6 seconds left for the final points.

Toronto's Andrea Bargnani, who finished with 35 points and 12 rebounds in 52 minutes, missed a 22-footer at the buzzer.

The Raptors erased a 135-128 deficit with an 8-0 run capped by Leandro Barbosa's 3-pointer with 20.6 seconds left to make it 136-135.

New Jersey's Deron Williams hit a jumper in the lane with 9.8 seconds left in the second overtime to make it 126-126. Williams had 21 points and a season-high 18 assists in 53 minutes.

The Nets' Sasha Vujacic made his sixth 3-pointer of the game with 9.2 seconds remaining in the first overtime to tie it at 119. Vujacic finished with a career-high 25 points.

Kris Humphries added 20 points and 17 rebounds in 54 minutes for the Nets (19-43), who defeated Toronto 116-103 on Friday.

DeMar DeRozan had 30 points for the second straight game in 54 minutes, and Ed Davis collected a career-high 15 rebounds for the Raptors (17-46). Barbosa added 22 points.

DeRozan's driving layup with 19.5 seconds remaining in regulation made it 110-110 and sent the game into overtime.

Williams, third in the NBA with 10.1 assists per game, is averaging 15.2 in five games with New Jersey.

Both teams return to their home courts Wednesday as New Jersey plays Golden State and Toronto takes on Utah.
