Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets

May 2, 2014

TSN - 7:00 PM EST

I have no idea what to expect tonight.

Well, except maybe another nail-biting finish.

That's been one of the few consistent trends this series, the latest example of course in Toronto's near meltdown on Wednesday night.

But, the Raptors came away with the win and now find themselves in a very unique position for this franchise. Not only are we talking about playing in Game 6 of a playoff series (not many examples of that in the last 19 or so years), but also a Game 6 that could mean the Toronto Raptors advancing to the second round of the playoffs, a spot they've only been once before in their franchise history.

So this is a big one.

Hopefully, as our man Braedon Clark noted in his preview this AM, it doesn't feel like a big game as Toronto can still come back home to close this one out if things go awry this evening.

But a little desperation would be nice as it would be a pretty tough pill to swallow if the Dinos lose in a Game 7.

So let's not even open that door.

Tonight needs to be a W.
