NEWARK -- DeMar DeRozan scored 19 of his 27 points in the second half, leading the Toronto Raptors to a 94-73 victory over the Nets Sunday night at Prudential Center.

"We didn't have any energy on either side of the floor," Nets coach Avery Johnson said. "[Toronto] came in, they're a hungry team, and DeRozan had a big night. Unfortunately, we just had a bad offense and bad defense."

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said: "I thought DeMar DeRozan did a heck of a job attacking the basket. He's too athletic and too quick to not get to the rim. The guys played like they believed. They knew that we were shorthanded, so everybody carried their load."

Jerryd Bayless finished with 17 points and did a good job defending the Nets' Deron Williams. Williams, who came in averaging 19.4 points, scored 24, but he had to work for them. He made only 8 of 20 shots and went 3-for-10 from outside the arc.

Anthony Morrow had 14 points and Kris Humphries shot 1-for-4 and finished with four points and eight rebounds.

The result left both teams with records of 7-14, tying them for fourth place in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. -- AP
