NBA roundup: Brooklyn Nets, Golden State Warriors find winning form

Sports Mole rounds up all the action from Tuesday night's games in the NBA.

The Brooklyn Nets have ended a run of five games without a win by beating the Toronto Raptors 102-100 on Tuesday night.

Toronto fought back late in the game despite trailing by 15 with just over five minutes left but the Nets held on, with Andray Blatche scoring 24 points as Brooklyn continue to deal with the absence of Deron Williams and Brook Lopez.

The Golden State Warriors also got back to winning form following three straight losses as they defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 102-101 on the road.

Klay Thompson scored 22 points for the Warriors as they were forced to survive a spirited fightback from the Pelicans, who missed a chance to win the game in the final moments when Eric Gordon's three-point effort struck the rim and was recovered by the visitors.

John Wall recorded 31 points and nine assists as the Washington Wizards beat the Los Angeles Lakers 116-111 at the Verizon Center.

Nene added 30 more for the Wizards, who didn't lose a quarter to the Lakers in their sixth success of the season.

The Orlando Magic won their first away game of the season by defeating the Atlanta Hawks 109-92 at the Philips Arena.

Arron Afflalo scored 26 points, while Victor Oladipo and Andrew Nicholson both added 18 to condemn the Hawks to successive defeats for the first time in this campaign.
