The Brooklyn Nets didn't look like they were nervous about being ousted from the playoffs in their Game 6 matchup with the Toronto Raptors. They dominated the early part of the game and ended up with a 97-93 home win to send the series to Game 7.
Right from the beginning, the Nets' crowd and their players seemed up for the task. They outscored the Raptors 34-19 in the first quarter and went into the half up by 19 points. The Raptors played a bit better in the second half, but the lead was just too big for them to even have a chance for a comeback.
The Raptors shot just 38.5% from the field in the game, while the Nets shot 46.8%.
The Nets got a big game from Deron Williams, who had 23 points, four assists and five rebounds in the win. Shooting guard Joe Johnson scored 17 points for the hosts, while Alan Anderson had nine points and nine rebounds in the win.
The Raptors didn't have many good performances on the night, but DeMar DeRozan did his best to keep his team in it by scoring a game-high 28 points, and he also had six rebounds and two steals in the loss. Point guard Kyle Lowry had an off night for Toronto, making just four of his 16 shots and finishing with 11 points.
