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.
