Playoff experience, once an area of prime concern for the Raptors, is starting to look passé after the latest in a string of superior fourth quarters by Toronto’s postseason greenhorns.
For Raptors’ All-Star DeMar DeRozan, the waiting between playoff games is the hardest part. The Nets, however, don’t mind one bit.
Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points, Kenyon Martin had another big game against Toronto, and the New York Knicks finished off a home-and-home sweep of the Raptors with a 110-84 victory Saturday night.
There is far less hype surrounding the second meeting between the Knicks and the Nets on Tuesday night than there was for their first game a couple of weeks ago.
The Nets opened the Barclays Center in winning fashion as they defeated the Toronto Raptors 107-100.
The Knicks closed within a half-game of sixth place in the Eastern Conference ahead of their Wednesday matchup with Philadelphia.
