The trade with the Memphis Grizzlies for Marc Gasol took away some of their depth (Delon Wright, C.J. Miles), and Raptors president Masai Ujiri quickly suggested the team would "attack" the buyout market after the trade deadline.

Russell hit a tiebreaking triple with 50 seconds to go, but Danny Green answered with a three for the Raptors.

Raptors guard Fred VanVleet was not available.

He suffered the injury in the second quarter of Saturday's win in NY.

In Toronto, he is expected to add depth behind Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet as the Raptors pursue the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, now a game behind Milwaukee.

Harris scored 15 points to lead Brooklyn to a 29-21 lead after the first quarter. He's averaged almost 20 minutes per game, scoring 10.7 points, dishing 3.5 assists and hauling down 2.3 rebounds per contest.

In the third quarter, Russell attacked the rim for 14 points in the period, locking up his double-double before even getting to the fourth quarter.

The Nets shot 20-for-41 (48.8 percent) from 3-point range, matching their season high for threes made. Coach Kenny Atkinson said Carroll should return Wednesday at Cleveland.

Still, things haven't been quite as good for the Raptors of late as they were during their torrid start to the season, and at home on Monday they found themselves in a dog fight with the Nets - who seemingly are in a tight game every night.
