Despite being the lower playoff seed, the Brooklyn Nets are favorites in their 1st round NBA playoff series versus the Toronto Raptors.  This series represents the classic case of age vs youth and with the series now tied 1 game apiece, the potential is there for it to be a very long series.  After being defeated last evening, Pierce, who shot 2-11 from the field, called the Nets soft.

"I thought guys stuck to their man individually for the most part and didn't help one another and that is the big part of our defense," Pierce said. "Sink and shrinking the floor, locking down the paint, tonight too many touches for them in the paint, too many paint points, and we didn't rebound.
"We gave them everything they wanted, 50 points in the paint, and [19] offensive rebounds," Pierce added. "We were a soft team tonight."
