April 23, 2014, TORONTO (ISN) – The Raptors have talked the talk. Now they have to walk the walk in Brooklyn.
Toronto backed up their GM’s trash-talking by evening their first-round playoff series with the Nets at one game apiece with a 100-95 win Tuesday night.
The series now switches to the Barclays Center for Game 3 Friday and Game 4 Sunday.
Raptors coach Dwane Casey says it will be a “new frontier” but notes the team has done well on the road in hostile environments.
Toronto GM Masai Ujiri made headlines prior to Game 1 by insulting Brooklyn. He later apologized.
The Raptors played twice in Brooklyn this season, with a win and a loss.
The teams have played each other six times in all so far this season, with three wins apiece.
