The first round playoff match-up between the Raptors and Nets isn’t just an on-the-court battle. We’re seeing the beginning of a war of words between the newspapers of Toronto and New York now.
After the Toronto Sun fired the opening salvo Saturday morning, the New York Daily News returned fire on Sunday with a simple message: “Don’t F*** With B’klyn,” with trash-talk extraordinaire Paul Pierce appearing on the front page. This comes after Pierce and the Nets made slight work out of the Raps on Saturday by a final of 94-97 on Toronto’s home court in Game 1.
Will Raptors GM Masai Ujiri and Drake try their luck again before the Tuesday night’s game?
