The young and athletic Toronto Raptors led by dynamic point guard Kyle Lowry, explosive shooter at 2 guard Terrence Ross, and slasher DeMar DeRozan will face up against the veteran led Brooklyn Nets led by playmaker Deron Williams, scorers Joe Johnson and Paul Pierce, and The Big Ticket Kevin Garnett. Should be a very close series although I am expecting the Nets o come out on top.

 

Starters:

Toronto Raptors                                            Brooklyn Nets

PG: Kyle Lowry                                             PG: Deron Williams

SG: Terrance Ross                                      SG: Shaun Livingston

SF: DeMar DeRozan                                    SF: Joe Johnson

PF: Amir Johnson                                         PF: Paul Pierce

C:  Jonas Valanciunas                                  C: Kevin Garnett

 

This should be a very competitive series. Youth vs. Experience to the fullest extent.

I'm definitely rooting for Toronto in this one. I think they have pretty good shot at it too as good as they've been playing. It's amazing that the better seed is an underdog.

I'm a Warriors fan first, but being from Canada I root for the Raps when possible.

Toronto and Brooklyn match up pretty evenly, however the experience of Brooklyn will be the difference in this one.

It's too bad Toronto with the type of season they had ended up with Brooklyn as their first round opponent. It was looking like it's be Washington up until the last night of games.

Lowry is playing for a contract this off season so I expect to him to have a big series win or lose. Ive watched almost every Raps game this year, there inability to close out games or hit the big shots will hurt them in the playoffs.

Anyway, I hope the Raps can pull off the upset. I'm heading to Toronto early May and would live to catch some playoff ball.

Wish we could have managed the six seed. We would absolutely manhandle the raptors. That loss to Boston was a killer.

Toronto keeps giving the ball to Valanciunas. It's not going to work they need to let Lowry keep operating. I'm sure the coach when he called a timeout with about 3 minutes to go gave Lowry the green light to go to work.
