Proving my brilliance once again, a few weeks ago I said I was only worried about Rondo and how well he returns, since then the Nets have stopped being terrible.

This could be a big game because even when Brooklyn comes back to earth, I don't think they'll be as bad as they were so I think their going to remain a playoff team (ie big game).

Were rested and at home, the Nets are on the second night of a back to back but streaking a little better then we are right now.  Years of experience has made me loathe big games with the raptors but they have been closing these rival encounters lately (except for a loss to Charlotte you have to go back to Nov. 26th(Brooklyn) for a complete missed win and maybe Dec. 1st (Denver) for a game we might have done more with).

Hoping Brooklyn is tired from that double OT.

Hoping Brooklyn is tired from that double OT.

From ESPN's preview:

"Needing 58 minutes to win on Friday may not bode well for the Nets, however. They are 1-5 in the second game of back-to-backs this season, and 0-3 in games following overtime contests."


The Nets have been winning some big games, and playing some great defence.

Should be a great game to watch.

That got a bit scary in the middle.

Nice to see the Raptors regain their poise, and hunger, and make this a decisive win. The Nets did tire at the end.

The ex-Kings were great!

DeRozan was a little slow getting started but finished very strong!

Looking forward to Monday and the Bucks.

DD might not be the most talented guy and he does the odd boneheaded thing on the court but he's playing really pissed off right now and I love it.

That buzzer beating 3 to end the half was a beaut.

The three was just the icing on the cake for me, he had a hot few minutes at the end of the third, IIRC starting from where he forced (and made) a long two when everyone was shooting terribly, then he kept attacking the lane, kept getting to the line and kept making shots, soon everyone was shooting again.

Raptors are nicely balanced now. I like the starting rotation. Bench could use a little improvement perhaps. But this team will be scary to play against in the playoffs.
