I finally gone to Raptors Square for one of these.

Amazing atmosphere and countless "Fuck Brooklyn" chanting lol. They need to cut down on the second hand smoke though.

so we had way less turnovers yet we were barely ahead until the last few minutes. did our offensive really stink or did they have superb defending?

By the way, something I was surprised didn't migrate over here from RealGM. I believe before game 2 they had made fun of our logo with Drake superimposed, but Turbozone crushed them with his comebacks. Here's my fav.

It was also a smart move by Casey to start making KG work/move more by having to defend the PnR.

How they can review a call and give Jonas a tech is impossible to fathom. This league really has to improve things in that area. I'm getting sick of endless reviews and terrible calls.
yeah, but my point is, mistakes happen. Let's just cut off this bullshit about the big great conspiracy to help the nets make it to the next round. if they wanted to fuck us over on purpose, those calls don't happen.

As for the jonas call, maybe he said something and the replay caught it, they do listen with headphones when they review, so I assume they have some kind of audio from the floor, not just visual.

At least one of the offensive fouls calls in the last minutes was pretty weak as well - considering the time of the call especially. Also, the loose ball foul that got patterson to the line at the end of game 3 was weak. Maybe they got more of those calls, but all in all, the games were not won or lost via calls, at least not flagrantly so (like some of the other playoff games).

Finally, veteran players get the benefit of the doubt in this league (on average). It's just the way it is, not fair, the same way it's not fair that rookies get treated like shit. I would love for the league to clean up this shit, because frankly it stinks (why should rookies get no calls, they are overwhelmed to being with?). But conspiracy? I don't think so.

nobody said we couldn't take both, just that it wasn't likely. A split was by far the most likely outcome. 5 minutes before the end, not many would have predicted the split either, things have been so up and down this series, every game of it.

I'm happy our 4th quarter dominance carried on in the playoffs, it's a good sign going forward. It's by far the most important quarter of a game, that's when teams are most likely to play the hardest.

it would have been even smarter to do it earlier and more often. I've called for casey many times this season to do it more, it's THE major strength for AJ, especially now that we can use both kyle and demar in that play (or vasquez and even salmons with the 2nd unit).

I don't have stats, but we have to be one of the teams least likely to utilize the P&R, despite having the personnel to do it really well - not sure why casey is so averse to it.

They use multiple pick and rolls quite often. The basic pick and roll has basically been killed by Thibs defense.

I'm also likely going down to the Square for game 5. Any chance we could actually get a group together?

I'm sure he is aware. He was there for the first game.

Bahh I know the game finished like last night but I can't believe that the Raptors came back. Could won the last game as well but glad to see they fight hard even if it gets ugly!

I do not know, but I expect a full collapse of the NETS in the coming game. Those fucking old bags must be burried and locked under the ground for a century, those words should be written on their grave : " FUCK THE NETS, MAY THEY NOT REST IN PEACE".
