• Raptors blow 26-point lead, hold off Nets

    Summary of 8 articles · Updated May 1, 2014
    Despite blowing a 26-point lead in Game 5, the Raptors managed to hold off the Nets 115-113 on Wednesday to take a 3-2 lead in their first round series. Kyle Lowry scored a career playoff-high 36 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer after Toronto had blown a 26-point lead, and the Raptors beat the Brooklyn Nets 115-113 on Wednesday night to take a 3-2 lead in their first-round series. During the Toronto Raptors’s exciting Game 5 win to take a 3-2 series lead over the Brooklyn Nets, one young Raptors fan probably wasn’t as pumped up as most of his Toronto brethren. The end of Game 5 between the No. 3 seed Toronto Raptors and No. 6 seed Brooklyn Nets nearly qualified as an entirely different level of insane, because it almost featured one of the biggest mistakes in NBA history. DeMar DeRozan had 23 points, Jonas Valanciunas scored 16 and Greivis Vasquez added 15 for the Raptors, who would advance to face Miami in the second round with a victory in Game 6 on Friday in Brooklyn. Williams then launched a prayer from about 60 feet, only for Jonas Valanciunas to block the ball a few feet in front of the rim quite obviously on its way down in the manner of Russell Westbrook and other players with a distaste for seeing the ball go through the rim even when it doesn't count.
