Michael Grange

Last time I saw a guy make a one-handed touch pass in a Nets-Raptors playoff series it was Jason Kidd doing it.

Mike Prada

If DeRozan reads the traps and moves it, Toronto will thrive. That’s the big key.

Buddy Grizzard

Fabio Borini scores the penalty and Sunderland leads Chelsea 2-1 at Stamford bridge in the 83rd minute.

Josh Lewenberg

Ross for three - his first postseason bucket. Raptors lead, 51-50

Mike Finger

Texas' starting defense just gave up a 70-yard touchdown drive to a unit led by a converted tight end. Rough.

Amin Elhassan

Nice touch pass by Lowry

Mike Ganter

Ross with a three. Now, there's a good sign.

Ryan Wolstat

Somebody told Terrence Ross the game started

Eric Koreen

A ross bomb of a 3 gives the Raps their first lead in a while.

Marcus Thompson

DeRozan with no vision on that pick and roll. Valanciunas was open.

Rusty Simmons

Mark Jackson on his team: "These guys are made of the right stuff, and seeing them everyday, I won't bet against them."

Mike Mazzeo

Kevin Garnett held scoreless in a first half for the first time in his playoff career (132 games) #nets

Chuck Swirsky

Fans need to return to their seats in lower bowl ..doesn't look good...

Eric Koreen

Oh god I hope some Raptor blocks KG's after-the-whistle shot this series.

Ryan Wolstat

Tomorrow’s Sun headline: Brooklyn F.U. with an ODB pic?

Mike Prada

Great little set there by Toronto.

Dan Woike

Jackson said if he was broadcasting, he'd pick the Clippers. Said he would've picked Denver last year, too. Doesn't mean "anything."

Mike Ganter

Alan Anderson over babysitting KG again before second half begins. It's a 24-hour job.

Josh Newman

"Yeah, hi, Masai? Hey, it's Rod. Sorry to have to do this to you, but......"

Tim Bontemps

It's no big deal in the end, and just makes for even more attention for the series. This is going to be a lot of fun.

Eric Koreen

Oh no: Kanye and Brooklyn's Jay-Z now playing. We're very sorry, Brooklyn. We swear it! Here are some royalties, jiggaman!

Rod Boone

This might be one of the funniest apologies of all time. Masai still hates Brooklyn: instagram.com/p/m-wqjMoWe5/

Scott Cacciola

I don't think Masai Ujiri does anything by accident.

Eric Smith

Other than the fact that kids were present (not that parents can't say (as I would to my kid) 'we don't say that') I'm ok w/ what masai said

Frank Isola

In even better news, Chelsea down 2-1 with 8 mins left.

Chuck Swirsky

2nd half Raps- Nets...your thoughts....

Marc J. Spears

Warriors coach Mark Jackson said there is "no hope anytime soon" Festus Ezeli (knee) will play. Reiterated Andrew Bogut out indefinitely.

Scott Howard-Cooper

Warriors will start Jermaine O'Neal at center, Mark Jackson reaffirms. No sign of Festus Ezeli, the backup C last season, anytime soon.

Tim Bontemps

I agree with @Eric Koreen – wouldn't be surprised one bit if this was calculated by Ujiri to take attention off his team. Either way, I love it.

Madelyn Burke

Mark Jackson: "if I'm sitting in the other room with Jeff Van Gundy and Mike Breen, I'm picking the #Clippers... That doesn't mean anything"

Ryan Wolstat

Nice picture choice for my Ujiri F-bomb quick hit: http://t.co/tjX0LFb2zy

Josh Lewenberg

Much better 2ndQ. Raps shot 36% but held Nets to 9/25, 2 assists and got to the line 17 times. 12 first half turnovers a concern

Mike Ganter

All this talk about Salmons struggling is a little odd. Shouldn't people be more concerned with DeRozan at this point.

David Locke

This story should be the #1 conversation about what a disgusting injustice the NCAA is kansascity.com/2014/04/18/496…

Eric Koreen

I think this was very calculated on Masai's part. A "focus on me, not my players" move. Of course, that didn't work out so well in 2000.

Jorge Sierra

Masai Ujiri says "Fuck Brooklyn" and the crowd goes wild. bit.ly/1kMEvNL

Matt Steinmetz

Loving that Warriors now playing in games big enough to warrant meeting up with buddies to watch. Especially minutes after noon!

Eric Patten

Jermaine O'Neal will start. Mark Jackson says Draymond Green will "play a lot"

Mike Prada

Will be interesting if/how Ujiri is punished (he shouldn’t be but whatever). Stern would have fined him a lot. Will Silver?

Rusty Simmons

Festus Ezeli (knee) isn't close to playing in a game, according to Warriors head coach Mark Jackson.

Scott Howard-Cooper

Mark Jackson said he can't be more specific than "indefinite" on timeline for Andrew Bogut absence. "He's in serious pain."

Fred Kerber

#Raptors GM Masai Ujiri apology for his "F--- Brooklyn" 2 crowd: "just trying to get our fans going...I apologize but you know how I feel"

Alex Raskin

I was likely the only Brooklyn resident present at Masai's apology, so I accepted it on behalf of the entire borough. That's it.It's over.

Eric Koreen

Masai, basically: I should have just said "screw."

Steve Popper

Best part of Ijuri comment will be Rod Thorn, whose entire in-game speech consisted of four-letter words, will have to fine him. #awf**k

Marcus Thompson

Jackson said Festus won't be playing anytime soon. Guarantee it won't stop people from asking me though

Rusty Simmons

Warriors coach Mark Jackson said "we're going to keep on moving on as if (Bogut) is not here." Big man rotation is O'Neal, Green, Speights.

Tim Chisholm

As much as the fans want to see Salmons exiled I don’t see Casey pulling him from the rotation now. Just gotta hope he plays well.

Jabari Davis

Not even mad at #Masai for saying it with his chest and standing by it. #WeSeeYou

Marcus Thompson

Jermaine O'Neal will start and Draymond Green will play a lot, Mark Jackson said

Robert Morales

Warriors coach Mark Jackson on emotions of series with Clippers: I have sane players, I don't have to counsel them #clippers

Mike Ganter

To recap this is how the haltime Ujiri thing went. "I'm sorry. Wrong choice of words. You guys know how I feel. I don't like them."

Dan Woike

Bogut injury is "real," Jackson said. Jermaine O'Neal will start.

Kevin Arnovitz

Ujiri with the non-apology apology. Mark Jackson playing the expectations game. Welcome to the 2014 Election.

Ryan Wolstat

To sum up: Masai Ujiri is sorry for cursing, but still doesn’t like the Nets.

Sean Highkin

I was on the fence about Panera bread, but when I saw this tweet from Tia, I was in.

Ryan McNeill

Here's audio of Masai Ujiri attempting to apologize for his earlier comments about Brooklyn: hoopsaddict.com/nba-audio-podc… #RTZ #NBAPlayoffs

Mike Tokito

Nice thing about #Blazers-Rockets series: Neither teams lists any injuries.

Jeff Zillgitt

In hindsight, a printed piece of paper on Raptors letterhead with Masai Ujiri's statement would have been the way to go. But fun for us.

Masai Ujiri is the best - gave Brooklyn a "It's not me - it really IS you" apology. I want Dolan to offer him $24 mil a year to come to NY.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs played better on the road than they did at home. That's good for them, because they won't have homeocurt adv in any West series.

Raptors GM Masai Ujiri ended apology with non-apology: "You know how I feel. I don't like them, but I apologize."

Steve Popper

The apology that Masai gave is basically what we've all been waiting for Berman to say to Masai.

Eric Koreen

Ujiri: " you guys know how I feel. I apologize, but I don't like them."

Alex Raskin

Masai Ujiri just gave the worst fu--ing apology.

Royce Young

We've got a point guard battle in Toronto. Deron with 18, Lowry with 15 cbssports.com/nba/gametracke… Machine GIFs and Vids: cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-bas…

Tim Chisholm

DeRozan tends to have big second-halfs when he’s quiet in then first, but this is a whole new beast for him.

Buddy Grizzard

Since scoring the Raptors' first eight points, Valanciunas has disappeared. Only Amir Johnson's -13 keeps him from being game-worst at -12.

Tim Chisholm

The Raps did not have a good half but are only down four. Gotta step it up in 2nd half.

Jorge Sierra

First 24 minutes of the playoffs were cool enough.

Alex Kennedy

Deron Williams and Joe Johnson have been excellent for the Nets. John Salmons has also been great for Brooklyn. #liability

Scott Cacciola

Oh look, Drake's making a rare public appearance.

John Schuhmann

12 turnovers for TOR, and that doesn't include DeColo throwing the ball into the backcourt on the last possession.

Zach Lowe

This is gonna be a fun series. Love that they called KG for shoving the screener! Need to call that general foul more. Playoffs Lowry!

Tony Mejia

"@exhoopsPRguy: Ed Malloy overreacts to everything." Hopefully they chill in the 2nd half. That 2nd qtr was ridiculous. It's the playoffs.

Mike Prada

Will keep saying this: The league HAS to get Game 2 off NBATV somehow.

Chris Herring

Looks like this could turn out to be a great series. Teams are pretty evenly matched, all things considered

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets up 50-46 at half. Williams with 18 points on 17 shots. Lowry 15. Joe 12. Vasquez 10. BK 3-for-15 from 3.

Tom Lorenzo

Awesome way to start the 2014 Playoffs. This game is good, you guys.

Arash Markazi

Danny Granger will play today.

Mike Prada

Salmons cannot get beat that easily.

Dan Woike

Danny Granger will play

Rod Boone

Watching real time, Deron went down way too hard for that to be a flop. He's not that good of an actor. Fans still upset at the call.

Tom Liston

#Raptors Hilarious flop by Deron. Guess we need to copy these "performances" to even it out. #RTZ

Micah Hart

We have some first-timers in the playoffs. @Mike Muscala, @Cartier Martin, @DennisMike93 and @Pero Antic spoke on it: on.nba.com/1mm5PEU

Sean Highkin

Lowry didn’t touch Deron’s face. Right offensive foul call on the push off, but that was a ridiculous flop.

Scott Cacciola

I've said this before, but Nets fans interested in Toronto perspective should follow @cathalkelly. Even if you aren't, follow him anyway.

Tom Lorenzo

YES showed the replay, Lowry hit Williams with his left elbow. Not a flop.

Josh Lewenberg

So, the Nets are not well liked in this city

Mike Mazzeo

Williams got hit in the face by an errant elbow by Lowry #Nets

Mike Prada

Ross in with three fouls, DeRozan still sits, huh?

Dan Duggan

Chuck Swirsky

KG may be back at the ACC but he s safe as long as Matt Bonner isn't there The Red Rocket owned him back in the day !

Mike Ganter

Valanciunas is one rebound shy of tying Tracy McGrady's club mark for rebounds in a playoff debut. TMac had 10.

Ryan Wolstat

Valanciunas needs one rebound to tie Tracy McGrady’s record of 10 in playoff debut

Kevin Pelton

If Patrick Patterson is going to get most of the minutes at 4 (which makes sense), Raptors have to use Amir Johnson as backup 5.

Dan Duggan

Flood said Nova was "very sharp" today. Said Nova did a good job today -- and this spring -- with decision-making and locating the ball.

Eric Smith

"@scottgunson: @Eric Smith he says that to all you guys lol" -- haha, probably true!

Dan Duggan

Flood called today's scrimmage "excellent." Drops limited offense's effectiveness somewhat, but overall he was happy.

Eric Smith

The #raptors tie it at 42 after a tech ft made by lowry (tech foul in Garnett). Anderson then back to back baskets for #nets. 46-42; 4:10 q2

Mike Prada

KG should be immortalized on a statue in that “What, me?” pose with his arms straight up.

Chuck Swirsky

Anderson beautiful hoop

Bill Oram

So @Mark Heisler just called me @Dan Woike' bitch. The playoffs have officially begun.

Michael Grange

I prefer my 'tough' guys to keep it low key, ie -- not like Kevin Garnett.

Tom Liston

#Raptors Poor KG had a obv call go against him. #RTZ

Mike Ganter

Alan Anderson holding his hands over KG's face so Garnett's words don't get through to refs. Surprised KG didn't slap them away.

KG gets called for a tech and Anderson has to sustain him. Kyle converts on the tech.

Royce Young

Everyone please mark off "KG gets into it with a short guy" off your layoff Bingo card.

Eric Smith

Totally self-serving tweet, sorry. But when pinball Clemons comes by, hugs you, and dubs you "the golden voice".....life is good, haha.

Rick Bonnell

BTW, Jeff Van Gundy is ABC's color analyst tomorrow. He was the guy who brought Steve Clifford into the NBA as an advance scout.

Josh Lewenberg

Small shoving match between KG and Lowry breaks out under the rim. Garnett is whistled for the tech. Playoffs.

Eric Koreen

John Salmons is from Philly, man.

Mike Prada

Raptors just ran their pet play (sbn.to/1jTWnFi) out of the TO, but Nets defended it well.

Michael Dugat

You have to like Ujiri a little more now ... right?

Rod Boone

KG just got hit with a tech.

Mike Ganter

Garnett taking some liberties there with Kyle and he got caught. It was after the initial whistle.

Eric Koreen

JV gets called for illegal screen. KG mad about something, is T'd up. The instigator: John Salmons.

Tony Mejia

Good one cooking, but c'mon refs, it's the playoffs. It would be nice to see the second-half flow undisturbed by all these touch-foul calls.

Mark Deeks

He's good, but remember he is, and likely always will be, a backup power forward.

Livingston goes to the bench with his 3rd foul. Vasquez has been a pest… and as a rest the Raptors are right back in this game. Tied at 35

Tom Liston

#Raptors 3rd foul on Livingston - that's huge #RTZ

Paul Jones

Thanks man...lol "@SteffanWatson23: No one has lines like @Paul Jones"

Rod Boone

Kidd waiting a bit too long to bring the starters back in. Shaun Livingston just picked up his 3rd foul fouling on a 3-pointer.

Eric Pincus

Didn't get a chance to post this yet: Pacers in 6, Heat in 6, Nets in 7, Bulls in 6, Spurs in 6, Thunder in 7, Clippers in 6, Rox in 7

Tim Bontemps

Livingston has committed two terrible fouls, and now has three total. Will take a seat for Deron Williams, & Garnett is also coming back in

Gary Lee

Well, if Pau Gasol really wants to go to the Knicks and play in the triangle offense, he'd have to take a significant pay cut -- $3.2M. Yup.

Eric Koreen

Livingston picks up third fouling Vasquez who shot a 3. He'll have a chance to tie it.

Jeff Zillgitt

Though Wittman said it in a press conference & Ujiri in front of fans in good fun, not sure NBA wants GM doing that. We'll see if he's fined

Steve Popper

That's awesome by the way that Toronto has 10,000 fans watching outside on the big screen. Of course, they will switch to hockey soon.

Alex Kennedy

How fired up are the Raptors? Well, here's a video of GM Masai Ujiri yelling "F*** BROOKLYN!" to give you an idea: instagram.com/p/m-l6tRSstd#

Mike Ganter

Awaiting Billy King's response to Masai Ujiri's "F*** Brooklyn." It's out there on video if you want to see it.

Jorge Sierra

This is still true: DeMar DeRozan has never made a basket in the playoffs.

Shandel Richardson

How many Rudy Gay references will there be during this series?

John Schuhmann

"Take that." - Masai Ujiri MT @dfeschuk: Spoke to Masai U, who confirmed he said "F--- Brooklyn!" in ML Sqr.

Payal Doshi

Watching @drake court side is amazing! He is rallying the team & chatting away with Matt in-between timeouts. #WeTheNorth

David Locke

I would like NBA expands to 32 with Seattle and Vancouver.

Alan Hahn

@micmobley: @Alan Hahn I love your show I love your work you are the reason that I tweet I'm a huge Knick fan” Thanks Mike.

Josh Lewenberg

As we learned during a season ticket holders event at the start of the year, Masai moonlights as a motivational speaker. Can fire up a crowd

David 'Dubi' Pick

Curtis Withers, a 6-foot-8 journeyman PF who's played in over 11 countries, returns to Venezuela. Signs with Gigantes de Guayana.

Mike Finger

Man, Charlie Strong really was serious about making changes. http://t.co/CmVTLuhQxf

Jorge Sierra

This is still true: DeMar DeRozan has never made basket in the playoffs.

ICYMI: Why "going big" to beat the Heat remains a big fallacy m.bleacherreport.com/articles/20306…

Mike Prada

Vasquez (and Lowry to some extent) are the only Raptors that don’t mind Brooklyn’s aggressive p&r coverages. Why I think we see lots of GV

David Locke

NBA, why not re-visit Vancouver. Vancouver had 6 years of teams losing about 80% of their games. No one would support that.

Tim Bontemps

If you didn't think this series was going to be fun before today, you absolutely should now.

Aggrey Sam

Jo issued a statement about the passing of his youth coach in New York, Tyrone Green. Returned to Chicago and is at practice today.

Jeff Zillgitt

With NBA commish Adam Silver here for Nets-Raptors, he might deliver fine to Masai Ujiri in person. Randy Wittman got $20K for same word.

Josh Newman

Raptors GM Masai Ujiri is my new idol. instagram.com/p/m-l6tRSstd/

Eric Koreen

Ujiri yelling "F--- Brooklyn" is very odd for a man defined by how he speaks in measured tone. Very "walk softly, carry a big stick" usually
