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

Tim Bontemps

Nets cannot buy a basket right now. Lots of open looks rimming out.

Rod Boone

#Nets need to find some consistent offense ... and quick.

Andrew Keh

Hooters franchisee Andrei Kirilenko is getting his first playoff action of the year.

Rod Boone

Andrei Kirilenko checks in.

Tim Bontemps

Andrei Kirilenko and Andray Blatche both enter the game for the Nets.

Mike Mazzeo

Here comes Kirilenko. Thoughts, Masha? #Nets

Stefan Bondy

Andrei Kirilenko is in the game for the first time in the playoffs

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets have a lineup that isn't built to score. it's showing. They are 5-for-30 so far from 3 this series.

Rod Boone

Remember when we thought #Nets couldn't shoot any worse than they did in Game 1? Well, they're at 32 percent (8 for 25) at the moment.

Rod Boone

Whoa. How did Mason catch that alley? That was filthy.

Tim Bontemps

Wow. Absurd alley-oop from Shaun Livingston to Mason Plumlee. You'll be seeing that on @SportsCenter.

Tim Bontemps

The Nets will be happy with DeMar DeRozan taking these kinds of shots all night.

Fred Kerber

#Nets shoot .368 in first quarter -- and still only trail #Raptors by two

Tim Bontemps

As in Game 1, Nets are still turning Toronto over a lot, and Joe Johnson is still getting into the lane at will. Both good long-term signs.

Rod Boone

End of first Q: #Raptors 21, #Nets 19. Toronto shot 44.4 percent from the floor, #Nets a paltry 36.8 percent,

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets down 21-19. Had a 9-4 lead when Pierce picked up his second. Shot 36.8 percent.

Tim Bontemps

Raptors lead 21-19 after one. Nets shot just 37 percent in the first quarter, didn't play all that well. Successful outcome for them.

Stefan Bondy

Mason Plumlee just rejected Terrence Ross and. ....screamed in his face.

Tim Bontemps

That possession saw the Nets nearly turn it over four times before Mirza knocked down that 3-pointer.

Tim Bontemps

That's why the Raptors are much more dangerous with Patrick Patterson than Amir Johnson. Can make the Nets pay from 3-point range.

Fred Kerber

Ex-#Knicks Landry Fields in for #Raptors v #Nets at 1:56 of 1st Q

Rod Boone

As soon as i tweet that, Mirza finally buries a jumper.

Rod Boone

Mirza is struggling. Can't buy a shot. Actually, no one on #Nets can at moment. #Raptors are on a 15-3 run.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets have missed nine of their last 10 shots. Deron Williams is 1-for-5.

Stefan Bondy

Nets are in the penalty after seven minutes.

Mike Mazzeo

11-3 #Raptors counter. DeRozan getting going early. #Nets must prevent on-the-ground offensive rebounds.

Fred Kerber

"Ladies & gentlemen, the role of Vince Carter tonight in #Nets v #Raptors will be played by Kevin Garnett" Crowd into "Garnett sucks" early

Tim Bontemps

Quick four team fouls on the Nets.

Rod Boone

Four fouls for #Nets in 4 minutes. Uh ...

Rod Boone

Paul Pierce picks up his second with 8:01 going for a steal. Has to take a seat. Mirza checks in.

Tim Bontemps

Standing ovation as Paul Pierce picks up a second foul. Mirza Teletovic in the game for him.

Mike Mazzeo

Pierce has two fouls less than four minutes in #Nets

Rod Boone

#Raptors go right to Jonas out of a timeout. Guess we know what Casey said and what the plan is -- Get the dadgum ball inside.

Tom Lorenzo

Per Nets: Kevin Garnett moved past Chauncey Billups into 9th place among active NBA players in career playoff points (2,527 playoff points).

Rod Boone

Crowd is moaning every time Joe drains a shot. He's 2 for 3 so far and KG is 2 of 2. Couldn't ask for a better start. #Nets up 8-1.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets looking good offensively. Joe getting in the paint. KG getting his mid-range J. 8-1 Brooklyn early on.

Tim Bontemps

And Joe Johnson is getting into the lane as easily tonight as he did on Saturday, too. Nets out to a quick 8-1 lead.

Stefan Bondy

Joe Johnson with three great looks at the start of this game. Made two of them.

Tim Bontemps

Raptors offense looks about the same so far tonight as it did most of the game Saturday.

Rod Boone

#Nets playing nice D so far. Nothing easy for #Raptors. They're working hard for every look.

Tim Bontemps

Sounds like Rob Ford is in section 318. Thanks to all who told me. Hopefully he enjoys himself tonight.

Andrew Keh

Mayor Rob Ford bought his own ticket and is sitting somewhere in the 300 level, a Raptors spokesperson said.

Rod Boone

Apparently, Rob Ford is in the house siting up somewhere in the 300 level of Air Canada Cantre. Attending his first #Raptors game of season.

Tim Bontemps

Some industrious fan inside of Air Canada Centre should tell me what section @TOMayorFord is sitting in.

Tim Bontemps

Atmosphere in Air Canada Centre tonight is good, but nothing like Saturday.

Andrew Keh

So if the Nets lose this series, BK borough president Eric Adams could potentially receive a Drake CD in the mail from Rob Ford.

Tim Bontemps

Some Canadians may have an inferiority complex about the NBA wanting Toronto out of playoffs, but no need for one regarding national anthems

Tim Bontemps

Even Drake has to go through security, apparently. instagram.com/p/nHEMmiM_5y/

Rod Boone

We just saw Drake. @Stefan Bondy asked for a prediction: "I don't know." Drake says. "We need it." He pauses, adds: "That's all I got."

Stefan Bondy

Drake didn't sound too confident when asked for a prediction: "We need it, that's all I got. "

Andrew Keh

Drake walked by in the tunnel. Bondy asked for a prediction. Drake said, "We need it. That's all I know."
