The Toronto Raptors rebounded against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night -- quite literally, to the tune of 52-30 off the glass -- beating the Nets in Game 2, 100-95, and evening the series at 1-1. Now, the series heads to Brooklyn on Friday night, where the Nets look to protect home court.
After Tuesday's loss, the human soundbite, Kevin Garnett, gave us another gem. First, speaking about the 36 points the Nets allowed in the fourth quarter, Garnett said, "Thirty-six points, that's too many points, for anybody -- preschool, little league, YMCA, Raptors -- too many points."
He then followed up with a pretty hyped up comment about protecting "the house," saying, "When you're on the road, one thing you want to do is try to get one on the road -- get home-court advantage -- and that's what we did. Now, we just have to take care of home -- it's going to be a rowdy environment, like it should be -- I don't know if you can say 'F Brooklyn' and come into Brooklyn, so we 'bout to see what it's like."
Game 3 is Friday night at Barclays Center.
