Nets vs. Raptors, NBA playoffs 2014: Time, TV schedule, radio and more

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Toronto got back on track in Brooklyn on Sunday night and head back to the Air Canada Centre with the series tied, 2-2.

The Nets have surprised the Raptors in this series, taking Game 1 in Toronto and punching them in the mouth at every opportunity. Toronto found some reprieve on Sunday with an eight-point win over Brooklyn, 87-79, to take Game 4 and level the series, 2-2.

DeMar DeRozan has been the Raptors' go-to man on on offense all series as the leading scorer in three out of the four games. But the fourth-year wing has shot just 36 percent in the playoffs, and against the tough Nets defense, has struggled to maintain efficiency.

For Brooklyn, it's been Joe Johnson who has taken it to DeRozan, especially in the post. In their two wins, Brooklyn has also done a great job of limiting their turnovers while forcing the Raptors into mistakes with the ball.

In Game 5, it will be up to Toronto to try and find any consistency from the arc, as well as hold onto the ball. The Raptors were a surprise in the Eastern Conference in the regular season, but this series has quickly proven that tough defense and veteran leadership goes a long way in the NBA playoffs.
