Resilient Nets Rally to Defeat Raptors 115-103 After Slow StartNovember 29, 2023
The Nets struggled early but eventually secured a 115-103 victory over the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night at Barclays Center, with a spot in the NBA In-Season Tournament quarterfinals on the line. The Nets (9-8) had a slow start on offense but found their rhythm in the second quarter, making just their first 3-pointer with 7:50 left in the period. Spencer Dinwiddie’s eight points and eight assists, along with Royce O’Neale’s strong performance in the fourth quarter, helped propel the Nets to victory. Despite their 3-1 record in the tournament, the Nets fell short of advancing to the quarterfinals by just seven points. They will now focus on their upcoming regular-season games on December 6 and 8 after failing to qualify for the Knockout Rounds.
