Ohm: Pierce calls #Nets soft; KG looks to Brooklyn espn.go.com/new-york/nba/s… via @ESPNNewYork

Tim Bontemps

As Rasheed Wallace would say, Ball Don't Lie.

Rod Boone

To Paul Pierce, being clutch player is all in DNA nwsdy.li/Qwnts6 #brooklynnets

Tom Lorenzo

I don't know what award you want to give to Taj Gibson, but he deserves something.

Mike Mazzeo

Paul Pierce has had eight single-digit scoring games in his playoff career (138 games) #Nets Had a 3, 4, 6, two 7s and three 9s

Mike Mazzeo

Only six teams in the last 15 years have won a playoff game despite turning the ball over on at least 24 percent of their possessions (ESPN)

Tim Bontemps

KG on 4th Q defense: "Thirty-six points, that’s too many points for anybody. Pre-school, Little League, YMCA, Raptors. Too many points."

Tim Bontemps

Kevin Garnett: "They did what they’re supposed to do, defend home, and it’s time for us to go home and do the same."

Rod Boone

Paul Pierce can't play hero again as Nets drop Game 2 in Toronto nwsdy.li/1fndiw0 #brooklynnets

Rod Boone

KG: "We can’t have 4th quarters like that. Thirty-six points, that’s too many points for anybody. Preschool. Little League, YMCA, Raptors."

Mike Mazzeo

"I don't know if you can say F Brooklyn and then come into Brooklyn, but we'll see what it's like." -- KG #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Paul Pierce said #Nets were "soft" on the glass and it cost them. @Ohm Youngmisuk

Stefan Bondy

Paul Pierce said the Nets were "soft" tonight and that's where the game was lost "in the trenches."

Andrew Keh

"I don't know if you can say "F Brooklyn" and then come into Brooklyn, so we're about to see what it's like," Kevin Garnett said.

Mike Mazzeo

Matt Harvey isn't the only one to flip the bird today vine.co/v/Mnvv7rADMmj Big games for St. Louis/Nash #NYR

Rod Boone

Was weird to see confetti shooting into the air over the court as if #Raptors won the series.

Tom Lorenzo

Raptors tie series at one apiece with 100-95 win over the #Nets sbn.to/QDHjkW via @Nets Daily

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets are 11-for-48 from 3-point range in the series. Got outrebounded by 22 tonight (52-30). 41-4 now when leading after 3.

Tim Bontemps

Nets lose 100-95 to the Raptors, and the series goes back to Brooklyn tied at a game apiece. 30 points for DeRozan, 18 for Johnson.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets lose. Series tied at 1. Game 3 Friday night at Barclays Center.

Tim Bontemps

Nets had their chance to close this series out tonight, and they blew it. This one was there for the taking.

Tim Bontemps

Not exactly textbook inbounds play defense from either team here.

Mike Mazzeo

Pierce had a good luck. Not this time. #Nets

Rod Boone

Paul Pierce missed a three that would've put the Nets ahead.

Mike Mazzeo

Or so it seemed ...

Andrew Keh

You can't buy that shot at Costco or Walgreens.

Mike Mazzeo

Landry Fields. #Raptors well on their way. #Nets

Stefan Bondy

DeMar DeRozan has 10 points in the fourth quarter and Raptors lead by four with 2:10 left. Big possession for the Nets after this timeout.

Tim Bontemps

The Nets will live with DeRozan making those shots. Not quality looks, but credit to him for making them.

Mike Mazzeo

DeRozan. Bad shot by Pierce at the other end. Rushed. No one to rebound. 89-85 #Raptors.

Tom Lorenzo

Straight DNA right there from Paul Pierce.

Mike Mazzeo

Pierce's first basket with 3:48 left couldn't have been bigger #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Paul Pierce. Because, of course.

Rod Boone

Deron complaining about not getting foul call on that drive. Looks like he did get hacked. But this game has been officiated inconsistently

Mike Mazzeo

So the reserves were minus-three through 5:42 #Nets

Stefan Bondy

Joe and Deron are coming back in.

Mike Mazzeo

DeRozan just picked up his fifth foul. 7:13 to go. #Nets down one. Bench down three.

Rod Boone

Uh, it's time to bring the starters back in.

Mike Mazzeo

If the #Nets win tonight, "We still haven't played our best basketball, but ..."

Tom Lorenzo

Nets have 25 total rebounds. The Raptors have 18 offensive rebounds.

Tim Bontemps

Also, Kirilenko has been terrific. Doing all the little things the Nets need him to do.

Tim Bontemps

Nets still haven't committed a fourth quarter foul in the series. Let the conspiracy theories continue!

Mike Mazzeo

Kirilenko saving the bench one extra possession at a time #Nets

Stefan Bondy

Bench gives up the lead.

Rod Boone

Wouldn't keep the starters on bench too long here to start the fourth if I'm Kidd.

Tim Bontemps

Huge shot by Alan Anderson. Nets need a couple more baskets to give Johnson and Williams a decent blow.

Mike Mazzeo

Kidd going all bench guys. Can they score? #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Lineup to begin the fourth: Livingston, Anderson, Kirilenko, Teletovic, Plumlee. How long can this work?

Tim Bontemps

This is exactly where the Nets want to be: two-point lead heading into the fourth quarter. We'll see if their experience wins the day again.

Mike Mazzeo

You guys know the drill: #Nets up 66-64. 41-3 when leading after three quarters this season. (1-0 playoffs)

Mike Mazzeo

Very interested to see how Kidd handles the first six minutes of the fourth quarter #Nets

Stefan Bondy

It looks like Tyler Hansbrough's head is going to explode in these timeout huddles.

Stefan Bondy

Mason Plumlee gave up three offensive rebounds on that possession. Joe Johnson and Deron WIlliams taking over on the other end.

Tim Bontemps

A lot of costly miscommunication by the Nets on defensive rebounds in this one. Giving Toronto too many opportunities.

Rod Boone

Joe is pulling out spin moves I've never seen from him before. He's showing off the full repertoire.

Tom Lorenzo

That's 7-time All-Star Joe Johnson.

Rod Boone

Another tough game for the refs tonight. Inconsistency.

Mike Mazzeo

Joe Johnson with nine straight points for the #Nets in the third quarter.

Andrew Keh

Raptors lead the NBA in people of Asian descent inside the arena per game.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets are getting outrebounded 36-21 (almost pointless to discuss anymore) but they are up 56-53. 14 Toronto turnovers. 10 BK steals.

Stefan Bondy

Nets starters have been so much better than the bench these two games -- wonder if Kidd will ride them out.

Rod Boone

Joe's three gives #Nets first lead since the first quarter. They're up 56-53 with 5:39 left in third, #Raptors call a timeout.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets have ripped off eight straight points and the #Raptors 11-point lead is no more.

Rod Boone

And we're tied at 47. #Nets have fought back.

Tim Bontemps

This has been a huge run to open the second half for the Nets. Exactly what they needed.

Rod Boone

Gotta love make up calls.

Tim Bontemps

Big shot for Deron Williams. Nets cut lead to four.

Mike Mazzeo

Lowry, who is quite the little pest, gets a technical to open the third quarter #Nets

Rod Boone

Kyle Lowry called for a tech. Crowd almost thought it was on KG for a second.

Stefan Bondy

Anybody figure out what that technical on Garnett was about?

Rod Boone

#Nets are already back out on court warming up. They hit it as soon as the great "Quick Change" halftime show was over. Couldn't wait.

Fred Kerber

Here's a link to #Nets Brook Lopez talking about watching playoffs bit.ly/1hmzRkb

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets down 45-39. Brooklyn trailed by as many as 11. They shot 37.5 percent. Mirza/DeRozan each have 11 points.

Tim Bontemps

Going into halftime down six is 100 percent a win for the Nets. Survived horrible shooting and Pierce foul trouble.

Rod Boone

Halftime: #Raptors 45, #Nets 39: Feels like #Nets should be down by 20.

Rod Boone

This game has the feel of one of those old school ##Knicks v. #Heat contests in the 90s after one side complained about officiating.

Tim Bontemps

Kirilenko has played some unbelievable defense since checking in the game.

Tim Bontemps

Garnett must have said something to Vasquez. Only thing I can imagine.

Rod Boone

KG called for a tech. Not sure why.

Mike Mazzeo

Kevin Garnett now with two playoff technicals as a member of the #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Garnett just picked up a technical foul.

Stefan Bondy

Mirza Teletovic is well-rested despite his wife just giving birth to twins: "Yeah (I'm sleeping). I have four nannies."

Fred Kerber

Great line today from recovering Brook Lopez. Reminded #Nets took off with small lineup, sed: "Small lineup. Uh oh. I'm pretty big"

Tim Bontemps

Nets managing to hang around despite shooting horribly. Next couple minutes before halftime are massive.

Mike Mazzeo

Mirza buries one from London, Ontario. He's got 11 points. #Nets only down 39-32. Could be worse. Should be worse.

Rod Boone

Mirza is warming up, has his stroke going. Is 4 for 7 (3 of 4 from downtown) and leads #Nets with 11 points. They trail 39-32.

Tim Bontemps

Every minute Patrick Patterson is on the bench is a good one for Brooklyn.

Fred Kerber

#Raptors three turnovers on last four possessions

Tim Bontemps

Andray Blatche giveth, Andray Blatche taketh away.

Tim Bontemps

A lot of noise – some cheers, some boos – when Rob Ford is shown on the jumbotron.

Rod Boone

Rob Ford shown on big screen. Fans love it.

Fred Kerber

In the last 4:26, the only guy who has scored for the #Nets: Andray Blatche

Rod Boone

After that bucket by Andray Blatche, #Nets are now 3 for 12 from the field in the second quarter.

Mike Mazzeo

The "they're getting open shots they just aren't falling" defense works ... until your team gets eliminated
