So leave it to Brooklyn forward Kevin Garnett to send a message to his own fans. Garnett said after the Nets' 102-98 home win on Friday that the Brooklyn fans "could do better," and Sunday they'll get that chance. With a 2-1 series lead, the Nets would like to head to Toronto with the Raptors on the brink, but there's no telling how Game 4 will go.
Unpredictability has been a part of the series for the Nets especially. Aside from Joe Johnson, who has led or co-led Brooklyn in scoring through three games, the Nets haven't gotten consistency out of their players offensively. Garnett, for one, has battled inconsistency and scored in double-figures just once so far.
The same consistency issues could be said for the Raptors, who have leaned upon heavy doses of DeMar DeRozan in the last two outings but have struggled to free point guard Kyle Lowry or get second-year swingman Terrence Ross off the ground.
