Nets vs Raptors Has Come Down To DeRozan vs Pierce

With the 100-95 victory at the Air Canada Centre on Tuesday night, the battle between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors has come down to which All-Star, DeMar DeRozan or Paul Pierce, can pull their team over the hump in the fourth quarter. “These two teams are very similar,” Jason Kidd said.

Toronto Raptors Are Over Their First Game Jitters

After the fact, the Toronto Raptors are admitting to some first game jitters, however, that is all behind them now. “The first game we were all anxious,” Greivis Vasquez explained. “I haven’t been in the playoffs in two years. We wanted to be out there. We wanted to perform. We got it out of our system. Now we are going to play Raptors basketball.”

Greivis Vasquez Is The Raptors Next Best Option

“(Greivis Vasquez) is not (afraid),” Toronto Raptors Head Coach Dwane Casey said. “I thought he came in and gave us a jolt. Being afraid is not in Greivis’ vocabulary. When he speaks Venezuelan, he doesn’t know the word afraid, so he is going to put the pedal to the medal and that is what we need in certain situations. I thought he played an excellent ballgame.”

Raptors Love Their Fans, Found A New Slogan? What Masai Said

“F-bomb Brooklyn” is a little over the top, but “What Masai Said” could fly.
“I heard,” Head Coach Dwane Casey said. “It doesn’t offend me whatsoever. That’s Masai.”
“It was unbelievable,” Lowry said. “The Brooklyn Nets were speak up, I can’t hear you, it’s loud in here.”
That sounded like a request. Lowry wants more and “We The North” suddenly sounds rather tame.
