Raptors vs. Nets – 2014 NBA Playoffs, Round 1, Game 1: Postgame Reactions (VIDEO)

The Brooklyn Nets’ experience proved to be the difference in Game 1 of the opening round Playoff series against the Toronto Raptors, as the Nets came away with a 94-87 victory. The Nets and Raptors face each other again on Tuesday night, back at the Air Canada Centre, for Game 2. The Toronto crowd was electric and definitely provided that 6th man/home court advantage that can truly help propel & lift the home team. Unfortunately for the Toronto Raptors that alone wasn’t enough, as they will need to make game plan adjustments and refine parts of their game in order to win Game 2 and even the series at 1-1.

Raptors’ Dwane Casey, DeMar DeRozan, Greivis Vasquez, Jonas Valanciunas, Kyle Lowry and the Nets’ Jason Kidd, Paul Pierce, and Deron Williams all spoke with the media after Game 1 and gave their thoughts on Game 1, as well as looking ahead to Game 2.
