The Truth heading to the bench after Raptors get a lucky break (terrible pass by Lowry)

Eric Koreen

Two quick ones on Pierce. Refs are against Raps.

Michael Grange

. Yes: "Scott Cacciola @Scott Cacciola 20s Did Drake make it to the game tonight?"

Eric Koreen

Valanciunas has been biting on every fake so far this series. He's eager.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors have their first FG, courtesy of Jonas Valanciunas and for the second straight playoff game JV is responsible for Raps first 4 pts

Eric Smith

Clearly not the start the #raptors wanted. 8-1 #nets. 8:35 to go in q1. Garnett has hit two smooth jumpers. #rtz

Ryan Wolstat

John Salmons giving considerable advice to the Raptors bench during this timeout. He’s going to be a coach when he’s done, book it.

Josh Lewenberg

Raptors still without a field goal, 3:25 in, after missing their first 4 shots. Nets meanwhile have hit 4 of 6, lead 8-1. Quick timeout Raps

Mike Ganter

Timeout Raps. They are down 8-1.

Eric Koreen

8-1 Nets. An awful start.

Mike Ganter

Casey is working the officials hard in the early going.

Payal Doshi

Game 2 just got started and the atmosphere inside the ACC is electric! #rtz #WeTheNorth

Ryan Wolstat

KG with two great screens early.

Josh Lewenberg

2 Raptors possessions. 2 Raptors turnovers - Amir, stripped by Pierce in the post/24s violation. Not a good start

Eric Koreen

Two bad possessions to start for Raptors.

Ryan Wolstat

Amir Johnson promised to come out with more energy. To out-run the Nets early and to get on the boards.

Ryan Wolstat

Has Herbie always pronounced D-Will’s school as Illa Noyz?

Eric Koreen

I can also confirm the attendance of the Global Brand Ambassador.

Josh Lewenberg

Veteran officiating crew for Game 2. Raptors were not happy with young trio that worked G1, felt they were intimidated by KG, Pierce & co

Eric Koreen

Apparently Ford is in the upper bowl somewhere. Man of the people.

Paul Jones

Take a walk with me to my seat as I get ready to broadcast the game #rtz #raptors #northernuprising keek.com/!I78Udab

Eric Koreen

I apologize. Drake is a fine singer.

Eric Koreen

The crowd fills in again for a bit of O Canada. Not as loud, but well done.

Mike Ganter

I guess I should have mentioned Drake but he's here all the time, isn't he?

Mike Ganter

Among the celebrities expected in attendance tonight are Jimmy Goldstein and Shania Twain. Oh yeah, the mayor too, but he doesn't rank.

Eric Koreen

"...in the world." 4.

Doug Smith

We're here to do Game 2 of Nets-Raptors if you'd like: thestar.com/sports/raptors…

Ryan Wolstat

Dwane Casey said he doesn’t go crazy with tweaks because “the human brain can only handle so much."

Michael Grange

Met the great Dick Stockton tonight. Am honoured to report he was convincing in pretending to know who I was. Class act.

Eric Koreen

Andray blatche has guaranteed rob ford's re-election. So stuff is happening.

Michael Grange

Watching Nets Joe Johnson warm-up pre-game I can confirm: big dude. What a tough cover.

Michael Grange

Someone should give Rob Ford a vintage Bargnani jersey -- no way he gets the Raptor fan vote then.

Ryan Wolstat

DeRozan seemed pretty excited that Rob Ford is coming. Said he hopes Ford is wearing his jersey.

Michael Grange

Apparently Andrew Wiggins will be at the ACC tonight, only as a fan, unfortunately.

Josh Lewenberg

Casey: "Most of the time in playoff situations you make adjustments, you make tweaks [but] the human brain can only handle so much"

Eric Koreen

"The human brain can only handle so much." - Dwane Casey, out of context

Ryan Wolstat

Nothing new that we haven't covered past two days ahead of Game 2. Besides the circus in the audience.

Eric Koreen

"I think we'll see two different players," Casey says of Ross and Derozan.

Josh Lewenberg

"Drake's over there yelling at the referees, I don't see him"- Casey, asked about Rob Ford, says he doesn't pay attention to who's in crowd

Eric Smith

Casey says he doesn't think about who is in stands or who is near him (asked about mayor ford, jimmy Goldstein & more coming today) #circus

Eric Koreen

Casey not thinking about Goldstein, Ford or Drake in stands. Shock

Eric Koreen

Casey: can't get sucked in away from three point shooters.

Eric Koreen

Casey: "our thing is to play our basic system first." Saturday gameplan undone by turnovers.

Eric Smith

Casey says congrats to Pop on coach of the year nod....doesn't say much / anything about his 5th place finish #rtz #raptors #nba

Eric Koreen

Ford and the Raptors: Both OUTSIDE OF THE ESTABLISHMENT, FIGHTING FOR THE LITTLE GUYS.

Eric Koreen

Weird Game 2 adjustment, to be honest.

Eric Koreen

Or maybe I should have said, Nets in Ford.

Michael Grange

Naturally as the Raptors-Nets series teeters on full-on weirdness, Rob Ford is rumoured to be on hand at the ACC for Game 2.

Josh Lewenberg

Also hopping on @TSN1290Radio in the PEG in about 5 minutes (5:30pm ET)

Eric Smith

If you're at the ACC tonight for game 2...and ya see me in the halls or in the square...say hello. Met a lot of crazies at game one! LOL

Eric Smith

Twitter time ... done. I'll touch base later and check in throughout the night obviously. Enjoy it.

Ryan Wolstat

Uh oh, Mayor Ford in house. His presence hasn't helped other Toronto teams win games. Meanwhile, what's up with Biebs rocking Nets cap?

Eric Smith

Just under 3 hours til tip. #rtz #raptors #nets #wethenorth #nofilters http://t.co/fgRB3QPeGz

Donaghy: Raps are up against Nets, and referees @Sportsnet sportsnet.ca/basketball/nba…

Apparently it's me and Mr. McCown on The FAN 590 in minute; I'm pretty sure it won't be the pucks. Come listen; I dare ya

Paul Jones

Tonight's cufflinks. Heck...We've been talking about the playoffs so much. #Raptors #rtzinstagram.com/p/nGuKYgyNHz/

Greivis Vasquez

Heading to the game!! Saliendo para el 2do de la serie!! Toronto stand up and let's get a W!!! Hoy Es… instagram.com/p/nGtiCdJA_N/

Eric Koreen

Do I regret retweeting that dude? Yes. Have I had better moments? Yes. Do I like asking myself questions? Yes. Will I stop? Probably not.

Eric Koreen

The biggest question nobody is talking about: Will I make proper adjustments to my Game 1 jitters and remember to bring my power cord?

Eric Koreen

A lot of animosity from both sides and their fans leading up to tonight's Game 7.

Doug Smith

On the absurdity — there's that word again — of obsessing over the officiating in Raps-Nets series: sports.nationalpost.com/2014/04/22/tor…

Doug Smith

After all these years there are those among us who give credence to Tim Freaking Donaghy???? Astonishing. And quite sad

Eric Koreen

In a way, we're all haters.

Eric Koreen

Worry about this, not refs, Raps fans. MT @Rob Mahoney: Nets might not need Pierce's clutch heroics against Toronto: wp.me/p16NvV-hPX

Michael Grange

You talk yourself out of some kind of anti-Raptors NBA conspiracy & then Tim 'disgraced' Donaghy pipes up: sportsnet.ca/basketball/nba…

Eric Koreen

I won't bore you with all of the links. The seven things I've written since the end of Game 1 are all here: sports.nationalpost.com/author/ekoreen/

Paul Jones

From J Rusin...this season in gms after scoring 13 pts or less DeRozan has avg 23.6 ppg with 9 FTA 5 rebs in 35 min #rtz #Raptors

Paul Jones

From @RaptorsMR JV 1 of 2 plyrs last 25 yrs (Shaq & Ben Wallace) to have 15+ pts 15+ rebs and 2 in playoff debut #Raptors #rtz

Eric Koreen

I get to go on with Sam Mitchell. This will be fun!

Eric Koreen

Popovich named coach of the year. Dwane Casey got five first place votes, finished fifth — behind Pop, Horbacek, Thibs, Clifford.

Eric Koreen

I'm going to be on @SiriusXMNBA in a few moments to talk about how the whole world is against Toronto, or something like that.

Josh Lewenberg

For all the talk about how the playoff sched favours older Nets, Brooklyn was just 6-7 coming off 2 days rest this season. Raptors were 6-3

Doug Smith

Josh Lewenberg

Encouraging omen for DeRozan… Vince Carter's 1st playoff game: 3-20 FG, 16pts, 2nd game: 7-13, 27pts. Bosh G1: 7-16, 22pts, G2: 10-20, 25pts

Michael Grange

Ex-ref Tim Donaghy is 'disgraced' for a reason, but man did he throw bone to anti-Raptors conspiracy camp. Story up on @Sportsnet soon.

Josh Lewenberg

Casey finishes 5th in COY voting. He prob should have been 4th, ahead of Clifford, behind Pop/Hornacek/Thibs but difference is negligible

Josh Lewenberg

Is tonight's Raptors/Nets Game 2 a must-win for Toronto? Yesterday's piece: tsn.ca/blogs/josh_lew… and podcast: iphone.tsn.ca/tsnpodcasts/Ra…

Michael Grange

No argument with Pop as NBA COY; clear choice, but not sure how Casey is 5th.

Payal Doshi

.@raptors coach Dwane Casey finished 5th in voting for COY.

Payal Doshi

.@Marc J. Spears Happy Birthday! We are just 2 days apart (4/20). Hope you have a great one.

Eric Smith

Dwane Casey finished 5th in #NBA coach of the year balloting - behind Popovich (1), Hornacek (2), Thibodeau (3), and Clifford (4). #RTZ

Ryan Wolstat

Gregg Popovich wins coach of the year. Hornacek, Thibodeau, Clifford, Casey next. Flip-flop Casey and Clifford and voters got it right

Eric Smith

Gregg Popovich named #NBA coach of the year. He's who I had no. 1 on my ballot. #Spurs

Payal Doshi

ICYMI forget DeRozan, Ujiri & the refs (please!), my look at coach Casey and the challenges he faces going forward: raptorsrepublic.com/2014/04/21/for…

Paul Jones

In all fairness to NBA officials, basketball is the most difficult game to officiate. And yes...the crowd can influence officials #rtz

Eric Koreen

The real winner in this series has been the Raptors' marketing department. Also: Drake.

Eric Koreen

Who wants to fight?
