NBA Playoffs 2014: Deron Williams tries to dunk on Jonas Valanciunas (GIF)

The Brooklyn Nets returned home to host the Toronto Raptors in a pivotal game 3 on Friday night.

The Nets were able to steal home court advantage away from the Raptors with a 94-87 victory in game 1 on Saturday afternoon. The Raptors bounced on Tuesday night, rallying to defeat the Nets 100-95 and even the series.

The Nets are obviously looking to win both games at home and take a commanding 3-1 lead when they head back to Toronto for game 5. The Raptors are looking to win at least one game in Brooklyn so they will once again have home court advantage for the remainder of the series.

The two teams are really going at it in the early going and one of the Nets’ veterans tried to make a play he may have not have been able to make his prime. Nets’ point guard Deorn Williams faked a corner three and drove to the hoop. He then tried to dunk over Raptors’ center Jonas Valanciunas and things did not go well for Williams.
