After splitting the first two games of their first round series, the Brooklyn Nets are playing host to the Toronto Raptors in game 3 Friday night.
There is a lot on the line – if the Raptors win, they will take back the home court advantage the Nets stole with a 94-87 victory in game 1 while if the Nets are victorious, they can go into game 4 with a chance to take a commanding 3-1 lead on their home court.
Although the Nets fell behind early, they took a half time lead.
However, Raptors’ All-Star guard DeMar DeRozan has been a big problem for the Nets. He appears to be too athletic for the Raptors to cover and he has consistently made them pay for that. He is scoring in very efficient fashion, something he often struggles to do, but he is also torching the Nets as a play-maker. He found Tyler Hansbrough for an easy dunk on this particular play.
