TORONTO—Tuesday at Air Canada Centre, the Brooklyn Nets snapped a five-game losing streak with a 102-100 victory against the Raptors. The Nets, up by 15 with three minutes to play, held off a furious Toronto rally that ended only when Amir Johnson launched an errant corner three in the final seconds.
