Brooklyn Nets vs Toronto Raptors

April 22, 2014

TSN/NBA TV - 7:30 PM EST

In the famous words of Ron Burgundy, "That escalated quickly..."

What was an intriguing but non-acrid series between the Toronto Raptors and Brooklyn Nets turned all sorts of ugly after only one game thanks to a power outage, some local media shenanigans, a dose of shaky refereeing, and the infamous "F--- Brooklyn" utterance by the Raps' GM Masai Ujiri.

Now we've got conspiracy theories, NBA fines, and cross border media wars in full effect and suddenly it seems like these two teams have been playing for a month straight!

But it's Game 2 of their first-round playoff series in reality and as Raptors fans, we know the main takeaway tonight is that the Dinos need a W.

Badly.

It's not that the Raps can't win four of five games after this one if need be, but it's certainly not ideal.

So...time for a W kids.

GO RAPS!
