Nets win league's regular season debut in Europe

2:08 pm on 5 March 2011

The New Jersey Nets took the honours in the NBA basketball competition's first regular season game staged in Europe by beating the Toronto Raptors 116-103.

With the Raptors and Nets anchored near the bottom of the Eastern Conference the game will have little significance other than marking another milestone in the NBA's expansion plans.
