NEW YORK — Mike Conley felt comfortable enough to let the Memphis Grizzlies ’ new kid take over near the end of regulation. Conley , a veteran point guard, then showed Jaren Jackson Jr. how he could single-handedly beat a team over two overtime periods.

The Nets broke away from a tightly contested game in the opening minutes of the fourth quarter after the teams traded leads for most of the first three periods.

Former Nets player Marshawn Brooks gave Memphis am 87-80 lead to start the fourth before Brooklyn's defense tightened and its offense took off with a 14-0 run, capped by DeMarre Carroll's putback layup with 8:00 remaining in the game.

After Gasol traveled and then missed an easy shot to the right side of the rim, Spencer Dinwiddie gave the Nets their biggest lead of the game with a 3-pointer from the left corner that made it 102-92.

TIP-INS

Grizzlies: Memphis had lost its last three games to the Nets.

Nets: G Joe Harris was held out of Friday night's game due to tightness in his left adductor.

WELCOMED ADDITION

Memphis coach J.B. Bickerstaff wouldn't mind having veteran big man Joakim Noah coming off his bench if he does end up signing with the Grizzlies.

Noah became a free agent on Oct. 13, a week before the season tipped off after the veteran declined a buyout and was waived by the New York Knicks after his disappointing two-year stint came to an end.

But the 33-year-old center seems like a good fit on a Memphis team that ranks fifth in defensive efficiency, allowing 103.1 points per 100 possessions.

It was reported early Friday that the New York City native was close to agreeing to a one-year, veteran's minimum deal.

''Any time you add or have the possibility of adding a veteran, a guy who is a defensive-minded player, a really good defensive rebounder, you know it adds to the depth of any team'', Bickerstaff said before Friday night's game in Brooklyn.

`If that were to happen it would be a bonus for us.''

Nets end 8-game skid by edging Raptors 106-105 in OT.
D'Angelo Russell scored 29 points, including six in overtime, and the Brooklyn Nets snapped an eight-game losing streak by beating the Toronto Raptors 106-105. Brooklyn picked the most unlikely way to end its skid, snapping a 12-game skid against Toronto with its first victory over the Raptors since April 3, 2015. Jarrett Allen made the go-ahead basket for the Nets with a little more than a minute left, their only basket in overtime not made by Russell. Kawhi Leonard scored 32 points for the Raptors, but Toronto couldn't get a look for him on its final possession and had to settle for Fred VanVleet's 3-pointer that just missed.
