Pierce finished with 15 points and Joe Johnson added 14 for the Nets, who won their season-high eighth straight at home. Brooklyn moved three games behind Toronto in the Atlantic.

Kyle Lowry scored 21 points to lead Toronto, which had won nine of its previous 11.

The Nets trailed 94-92 after Lowry split the defense in the lane for a lay-up with 2:15 left.

Brooklyn then answered with five straight points as Andray Blatche's reverse lay-up tied the score at 94 and Pierce followed with a 3-pointer.
