Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets

April 27, 2014

TSN - 7:00 PM EST

So Brooklyn was "kind of" in the house.

But fan fervor hardly mattered as the Nets outplayed the Raptors when it counted, and a late comeback from the Dinos really didn't change the game's narrative.

Turnovers, a lack of touches for Toronto's big men, too much iso-ball, and an inability to contain the Nets' backcourt of Joe Johnson and Deron Williams was too much to overcome and now the Toronto Raptors find themselves in a hole once more, needing a win tonight to knot their playoff series with the Nets at 2.

It won't be easy either.

Many of Toronto's key players are banged up, and the club has been unable to solve some of the riddles that have plagued them from the beginning of this series, be it the Paul Pierce match-up, or Terrence Ross' vanishing act.

So tonight should be very interesting.

Do we see a Raptors' squad that's learned from the first three games, or more of the same with the Nets heading back to Toronto next week, closing in on the kill.

Here's hoping it's the former.

GO RAPS!
