0 0

DeMar DeRozan scored 30 points on a night he didn't get much help from his teammates and the Toronto Raptors dropped a 102-98 decision to Brooklyn on Friday, giving the Nets a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven playoff series.

Patrick Patterson added 17 points and Kyle Lowry finished with 15 points for the Raptors, who rallied from a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit to nearly steal a victory in Barclays Center. Jonas Valanciunas added 10 points and 10 rebounds for his third consecutive double-double of the series.

Joe Johnson topped the Nets with 29 points, while Deron Williams had 22 and Paul Pierce finished with 18.

Game 4 of the best-of-seven series is Sunday in Brooklyn, then the series heads back to Toronto for Game 5 on Wednesday.

The Raptors were looking for their first playoff road win since Game 1 of their second-round series against Philadelphia in 2001.

The Raptors shot 46 per cent on the night while the Nets made good on 49 per cent of their shots. The Raptors outrebounded Brooklyn 35-29.

 Friday's crowd in Brooklyn, though, felt more festive than hostile. Outside the sleek $1 billion Barclays Center, a steel drum band entertained people waiting in lines.
