The Brooklyn Nets beat the Toronto
Raptors 94-87 in Game 1 of their first
round NBA playoff series yesterday.
Deron Williams and Joe Johnson each
scored 24 points, and Paul Pierce scored
nine of his 15 points in the final quarter,
as the Nets won despite making four
of 24 three-pointers.
Kyle Lowry scored 22 points and
Jonas Valanciunas had 17 points and
18 rebounds to lead the host Raptors.
Valanciunas is the second Raptors
player to have a double double in his
postseason debut, after Tracy McGrady
in 2000. Valanciunas also set a Raptors
record for playoff rebounds.
The game was delayed midway
through the third quarter when the

Play eventually resumed with both
clocks still dark, and the stadium
announcer marking the remaining time
at ten seconds, then counting down
from five before saying Horn as time
expired. The clocks remained inactive
for the rest of the game.
Toronto led 77-76 on a three by
Greivis Vasquez at 5:15, but the Nets
replied with a jumper by Johnson, a
turnaround jumper by Kevin Garnett
and a three by Pierce to lead 82-76
with 2:58 remaining.
Pierce added two more baskets on
either side of a 3 by Vasquez, and the
Nets sealed it with six free throws in
the final 22 seconds.
In late matches, it was Golden State
at LA Clippers, Atlanta at Indiana, and
Memphis at Oklahoma City. (AP)

coach Terry Stotts expects guard
Damian Lillard to make a quick adjust-
ment to the NBA playoffs.
"I think he ll be a seasoned veteran
five minutes into Game 1," Stotts said.
The second-year starter has always
played beyond his years.
Last season Lillard ran away with the

record for three-pointers in a season,
finishing with 185, and became just the
third NBA rookie with at least 1,500
points and 500 assists, following Oscar
Robertson and Allen Iverson.
And he swept all six of the league s
rookie of the month awards.
This season, Lillard became the first
player to participate in all five events
connected to the All-Star game: the
Future Stars game, the skills challenge,
the three-point shootout, the dunk con-
test and finally the All-Star game itself.
And now he s ready to test himself
in the playoffs.
"I m looking forward to it," Lillard
said. "I m just going to try and not put
too much pressure on the fact that it s
my first playoff game, or that we re on
the road, or all those other things. I m
just going to try and play like it s another
