    Brooklyn Nets' MarShon Brooks collides with Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry (3) as Lowry draws a foul by Brooks in the first half of Tuesday's game.

    Brook Lopez had 22 points and nine rebounds, Joe Johnson and Deron Williams each scored 21 points, and the Brooklyn Nets extended their season-high winning streak to seven games with a 113-106 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night.

    Andray Blatche added 14 points for the Nets, in the midst of their longest winning streak since running off 14 in a row late in the 2005-06 season. A .500 team when they fired Avery Johnson late last month, Brooklyn is 9-1 under interim coach P.J. Carlesimo and has pulled within 1½ games of the New York Knicks for the Atlantic Division lead.
    The Nets dominated the fourth quarter again, pulling away for their sixth straight home victory.
