News 12's Pat O'Keefe and Dan Serafin break down the Nets' play during the NBA restart and break down Brooklyn's playoff matchup against the defending champion Raptors.
 
Pat O'Keefe:

Outside of the Phoenix Suns, who went 8-0, no team was a more pleasant surprise during the NBA's restart in Orlando than the Brooklyn Nets. At the beginning of the seeding games, there were legitimate questions about whether Brooklyn would be able to hold onto one of the final two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. Those questions were legit, because Brooklyn entered the bubble with a roster full of castoffs and G-League guys, playing for an interim head coach, and without any of the following: Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Spencer Dinwiddie, Taurean Prince, DeAndre Jordan, Wilson Chandler and Nic Claxton. Not only did Brooklyn finish in a playoff position, they locked up the seventh seed by going 5-3 in their eight games, including wins over NBA title contenders Milwaukee and the Los Angeles Clippers.
