WATCH: Nets' Bogdanovic explodes for career-high 44 points
LOS ANGELES, USA - Croatian forward Bojan Bogdanovic scored a career-high 44 points to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 131-114 victory over the lowly Philadelphia 76ers.
Bogdanovic surpassed his prior career high of 28 points set against Orlando last April.
His total was the most for a Nets player since Deron Williams scored 57 on March 4, 2012, and the most by any Nets player since the team moved from New Jersey to Brooklyn for the 2012-13 campaign.
Raptors bounce back
Kyle Lowry scored 25 points and passed out 11 assists for the Toronto Raptors, who bounced back from a tough loss to the Chicago Bulls with a 107-89 victory over the Bucks in Milwaukee.
Lowry poured in 20 points in the first half to help the Raptors take a 52-49 lead at the interval.
Toronto opened the third quarter with an 8-0 scoring run and connected on 60 percent of their shots from the field to take an 81-66 advantage into the final frame.
The victory, on the heels of a two-point defeat at Chicago that snapped Toronto's three-game winning streak, saw the Raptors edge closer to Eastern Conference leaders Cleveland on a night when the Cavaliers were idle.
In Indianapolis, Paul George scored 25 points and the Indiana Pacers pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 103-98 victory over the Boston Celtics.
Two free throws from George Hill with 7:43 remaining launched a 6-0 Pacers scoring run and Indiana wouldn't look back. – Rappler.com
