Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Mmmm...Lunchbox Links for Monday, April 21 2014. All the Nets vs Raptors links you can chow down on!

SB Nation 2014 NBA Playoff Bracket

Lotta links this afternoon as the Toronto Raptors prepare for Game 2 of their playoff series vs the Brooklyn Nets tomorrow night.  A good chunk of these focus on DeMar DeRozan, the Raptors' All-Star wing who was a virtual no-show for the opening match on Saturday.  The Nets though played a giant part in this, constantly forcing him into tough shots, or into a facilitator role, not exactly one of DeMar's strengths.

He's spent a good chunk of time in the film room in between games and has vowed to be much more aggressive tomorrow night  however so we'll see how this goes.
