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.
It looks like Tyler Hansbrough's head is going to explode in these timeout huddles.
Mason Plumlee gave up three offensive rebounds on that possession. Joe Johnson and Deron WIlliams taking over on the other end.
A lot of costly miscommunication by the Nets on defensive rebounds in this one. Giving Toronto too many opportunities.
Joe is pulling out spin moves I've never seen from him before. He's showing off the full repertoire.
That's 7-time All-Star Joe Johnson.

Whoa. How did Mason catch that alley? That was filthy.
The Nets will be happy with DeMar DeRozan taking these kinds of shots all night.
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.
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.
Mason Plumlee just rejected Terrence Ross and. ....screamed in his face.
That possession saw the Nets nearly turn it over four times before Mirza knocked down that 3-pointer.

Atmosphere in Air Canada Centre tonight is good, but nothing like Saturday.
So if the Nets lose this series, BK borough president Eric Adams could potentially receive a Drake CD in the mail from Rob Ford.

Drake didn't sound too confident when asked for a prediction: "We need it, that's all I got. "
Drake walked by in the tunnel. Bondy asked for a prediction. Drake said, "We need it. That's all I know."
