The Raptors evened the series 2-2 in Game 4. In Game 3, the Nets beat the Raptors 102-98 on Friday night. Kyle Lowry was guarded so tightly that he said it was almost like a 4-on-4 play.
Last week, Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri was fined $25,000 for using the expletive against the Nets. The Nets players are looking forward to how their fans will respond to Uijiri's "F Brooklyn" comment.
The Raptors won the Atlantic Division and had 48 wins, the highest the franchise ever reached. It is the also the first time they've reached playoffs in seven years. However, they are considered the underdog compared to the top four playoff teams in the Eastern Conference.
The Nets have lost five straight games coming into the Playoffs. As a result, they are meeting the Raptors in the first round and avoiding the fourth-seeded Chicago.
Toronto (48-34) and Brooklyn (44-38) have met four times during the regular season, during which each time won once on opponent's court.
The Brooklyn Nets feature veteran players who have much experience in the playoffs, such as forward Paul Pierce, who has started 136 playoff games, and Kevin Garnett. However, these players may not be a match against the younger Raptors.
Coaches Casey and Kidd have both made it to the playoffs for the first time as head coaches, and Casey used to be Kidd's coach at Dallas Mavericks. Both complimented the other and hold high esteem.
