"In the playoffs you're not going to get calls," Garnett said. Nets forward Paul Pierce, like Garnett, shrugged off the referee's effect on the game. Since Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen arrived in Boston in the summer of 2007, the Celtics place in the Eastern Conference bracket has been a given, complete with a championship, a near miss of a second one, and a scintillating run at a third Finals appearance in five years back in 2012. In case you just woke up from a very long nap, the Nets feature a couple of dudes named Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett and Pierce played a huge role in the Game 1 win over the Raptors, scoring nine straight points in the fourth quarter with the outcome still in the balance on a variety of his typical herky-jerky stepbacks, off-balance jumpers and lightning quick first step drives to the rim that silenced the Raptors rambunctious crowd and signified his 15-year tenure in Boston . Toronto swingman DeMar DeRozan acknowledged Monday that his team had settled for jump shots down the stretch, and reserves Greivis Vasquez and Patrick Patterson said they didn't expect respect from the refs.
