2014 Playoffs: Brooklyn Nets vs. Toronto Raptors
The score at the half: Nets 61, Raptors 53.
The Raptors are not taking kindly to Andray Blatche's guarantee that the Nets will win Game 7 in Toronto. "Guarantee it," the big man said during a Friday shootaround, as quoted by Stefan Bondy, Greivis Vasquez and DeMar Derozan took exception.
It's win or stay home, as the Nets hope to keep their season alive, taking on the Toronto Raptors in Game 6 of their first round playoff series.
Jason Kidd had an agenda when he got on the phone with beat writers Thursday morning. It was all about one stat he chose to emphasize: Joe Johnson took 23 shots Wednesday night but only one free throw. How's that happened, he wondered.
In a tweet from their own account, the Nets disassociated themselves from a tweet from the same account Thursday. In that tweet,fans were told "set your DVD and take notes" on the Raptors home crowd, noting "this is what a playoff crowd sounds like"
The game was close early in the second quarter when the Brooklyn Nets own twitter feed took slap at Nets fans, telling them to set their DVD (?!) to the game so they can learn "what a playoff crowd sounds like." Nets fans were not pleased.
Score at the half: Raptors 62, Nets 44.
