NEW YORK (AP) -- DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points, Kyle Lowry added 22, and the Toronto Nets beat the Brooklyn Nets 87-79 on Sunday night to even their Eastern Conference first-round series at two games apiece.

Amir Johnson had 17 points for the Raptors, who started fast, gave up all of a 17-point lead, then shut the Nets down over the final 5 minutes to snap a 13-game road losing streak in the playoffs that went back 13 years.

Game 5 is Wednesday night in Toronto, with the series now guaranteed a return to Brooklyn on Friday for Game 6.

Paul Pierce scored 22 points for the Nets, who were 3 for 17 in the fourth quarter and didn't have a field goal after Pierce's basket with 6:13 left gave them a 77-73 lead.
