PLAYER NOTES

--G Deron Williams has 76 assists (an average of 15.2) in his five games with the Nets, all of them double-double games. And the assists include back-to-back games of 17 and 18. Only twice before in the Nets' NBA history did a player have back-to-back games of 16 assists or more. Devin Harris did it this season with 16 and 18 assists on Jan. 29 and Jan. 31. In 1992, Kenny Anderson had 17 and 16 in consecutive games on Dec. 4 and Dec. 5. "He's been passing the ball really well since he got here," coach Avery Johnson said. "In double-figure assists every game. Really has a good two-man game going with (Kris) Humphries and Brook (Lopez)."

--C Brook Lopez continued his domination of the Raptors on Saturday. After a 25-point effort Friday, Lopez punished the Raptors for 34 points, a season-high 14 rebounds and a career-high eight blocks before fouling out Saturday. "I got a chance to play with some really good big men in my career," Deron Williams said, "and Brook is as talented as they are. ... He's carried us the last three, four games. He's showing what he's about."

--F Kris Humphries recorded his fourth consecutive double-double Saturday when he scored 20 points and grabbed 17 rebounds in 54 minutes of the Nets' triple-overtime victory over the Raptors in London. Humphries now has a team-high 20 double-doubles this season, including two in the games against Toronto in London that he said were an honor to be a part of. "It really meant a lot to play the first NBA game ever in Europe," Humphries said.

MEDICAL WATCH

--F Damion James (mild concussion) was injured in the third quarter Saturday and did not return.

--G Anthony Morrow (mild concussion) sat out Saturday's game in London after suffering his injury in the second quarter Friday.

--F Quinton Ross (lower back strain) missed his fourth straight game Saturday. He remains day-to-day.
