The Nets (2-6) snapped a six-game losing streak with a 97-85 victory in Toronto over the Raptors on Friday night. They are now three road wins shy of tying last season's total.

Here are some quick observations:

Anthony Morrow, who started in place of the injured MarShon Brooks finally found his missing 3-point shot, finishing 6-for-10 from downtown en route to a game-high tying 24 points. Morrow came in shooting 31.3 percent from beyond the arc.

Deron Williams’ shooting woes continued (6-for-18), but he did make 11 of 13 free throws, dished out nine assists and also finished with 24 points. D-Will had 12 of his 24 points in the third quarter. He was a plus-19.

• The Nets, who came in ranked last in points per game (83.1) made a season-high 15 3-pointers on 31 attempts. They were 16-for-49 from 2-point range.

DeShawn Stevenson, starting in place of Damion James, knocked down five 3-pointers en route to 15 points.

• Following a two-game absence from the lineup, Kris Humphries returned to grab a game-high 16 rebounds -- including nine on the offensive end. The Nets out-rebounded the Raptors 44-30. They only turned the ball over 10 times.

• At one point in the game, the Nets had all four Williams’ -- Deron, Jordan, Shelden and Shawne -- in the game at the same time -- an NBA record.

Mehmet Okur left the game with back spasms and did not return.
