The Raptors weren’t prepared to play tonight and it showed on the court. The Nets raced out to a 58-39 halftime lead and the Raptors never really threatened them in the 2nd half. The Raptors also played very poorly on defense as the Nets shot 52.6% from the floor as a team. T.J. Ford was outstanding last night as he led the Nets with 27 points, 8 assists and 2 steals. Anthony Parker had a bad game after playing two good games to start this series. Parker was only 3 for 10 from the floor and he wound up with 14 points and 5 rebounds. Parker also couldn’t contain Vince Carter who hung 37 points on the Raptors. Chris Bosh didn’t show up either as he was only 3 for 10 from the floor. Bosh wound up with 11 points, 11 rebounds, 2 assists and 3 steals. Jose Calderon was 6 for 6 from the floor and he finished the game with 12 points and 3 assists, but, he had 8 turnovers and that hurt the team. The Nets now lead the series 2-1.
