Raptors beat Nets, end road playoff skid

Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - A hot start, a hard-nosed finish, a tied series.

The Raptors are headed back to Toronto with home-court advantage again.

DeMar DeRozan had 24 points, Kyle Lowry scored 22 and the Raptors beat the Brooklyn Nets 87-79 on Sunday for their first road playoff win in almost 13 years.

The Raptors tied the best-of-seven Eastern Conference quarterfinal series at 2-2 heading into Wednesday's Game 5 at Air Canada Centre.

They opened the game with a 13-2 run and ended it with a 9-0 flourish, holding the Nets scoreless for almost five minutes at the end.
