Now, you just have to keep it going. The 24-year-old has. In his last four games -- all starts -- Plumlee is averaging 18.3 points, 10.

Brooklyn Nets falter in 105-89 loss to Toronto Raptors

Kyle Lowry had 20 points and 12 assists, Jonas Valanciunas added 16 points and 10 rebounds, and the Toronto Raptors used a big fourth quarter to beat the Brooklyn Nets 105-89 Wednesday night.

D-Will, Nets play small vs. NBA's big boys

The Brooklyn Nets are 1-12 this season against .500 or better opponents (at time of game played). Deron Williams is one of five Nets to have appeared in all 13 of those games, and this is his stat line: 14.1 points, 5.7 assists, 2.7 turnovers, 38.6 percent shooting. On Wednesday night, Williams produced two points, two assists and five turnovers on 1-for-5 shooting in the second half of Brooklyn’s 105-89 loss to the Atlantic Division-leading Toronto Raptors, the latest quality team to have their way with the Nets by the time the final buzzer sounded.
