This is going to be one of the best series of the first round — a lot of fans have not seen Toronto much this season but if the Nets really did tank to get them they didn’t make things easy on themselves.
Julie Dondaldson and I discuss this first round matchup in the East, where the Nets will count on the expereience of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce against the athleticism of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan. It’s a great matchup. Joe Johnson torched the Raptors this season, DeRozan returned the favor.
