The AP reports:
Travis Outlaw and the New Jersey Nets were up to the challenge of providing excitement for the NBA’s European fans.
The Toronto Raptors more than did their part, too.
Outlaw scored the final eight points for New Jersey in a 137-136 triple overtime win Saturday night that gave the Nets a sweep of their two games in London.
The game featured four missed buzzer-beaters and provided exactly the kind of thrilling finish league officials were looking for when they decided to bring regular-season games to Europe for the first time… Brook Lopez had 34 points and 14 rebounds for the Nets but fouled out in the second overtime.
Deron Williams added 21 points and 18 assists for his fifth straight double-double since joining the Nets from Utah last week.
Sasha Vujacic had 25 points—including six 3-pointers—and Kris Humphries added 20 points and 17 rebounds for New Jersey. Outlaw finished with 14 points.
DeMar DeRozan finished with 30 points for Toronto (17-46) for the second straight night.
