Jarrett Allen hit the go-ahead layup with 64 seconds left in overtime, and the Brooklyn Nets outlasted the Toronto Raptors for a 106-105 victory Friday night in New York, ending a pair of eight-game losing streaks. Allen helped the Nets end an eight-game home losing streak and an eight-game overall skid when he converted a reverse layup after getting the pass from Spencer Dinwiddie. The Nets then exhaled as Kyle Lowry missed a left-wing 3-point attempt with 49 seconds left and Fred VanVleet missed a 3-point shot right before the final buzzer.
The Wizards host the scrappy Brooklyn Nets as they aim to bounce back from a big loss to the Sixers.
