On Friday night, the Brooklyn Nets built a huge lead and held off the Toronto Raptors 97-83 for a Game 6 victory that forced a decisive Game 7 on Sunday.
Apparently that victory gave the Nets a lot of confidence because according to Stefan Bondy of The New York Daily News, Nets’ forward Andray Blatche is guaranteeing a Game 7 victory.
Andray Blatche: “It’s a guarantee. We’re going to take care of business in Game 7 and go to Miami.”

Blatche should expect to win, but in this series, things are far from guaranteed. The teams have gone back and fourth and big leads have been blown on several occasions. So far, the series has shaken out like this:
Blatche, who has helped the Nets more than anyone could have imagined since being waived by the Washington Wizards via the amnesty clause, is averaging just 6.6 points and 4.6 rebounds per game after averaging 11.2 points and 5.3 rebounds per game during the regular season.
