Our friend Coach Nick of BBALLBREAKDOWN is back with a fantastic breakdown of the first round playoff matchup between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors.
His keys to the series lay in the hands of the Nets bigs -- how much will they get from Kevin Garnett and what will Mason Plumlee give them? -- and with the Raptors wings. He goes into discussing the Nets success in spot-up shooting, but counters by noting the Raptors are a Top 10 defense on spot-ups.
Coach Nick also talks about Dwane Casey and Jason Kidd, who are two rookie head coaches with no playoff coaching experience.
