NEW YORK (AP) - Kyle Lowry had a banged knee, busted lip and a knot on his elbow, and Toronto coach Dwane Casey made it sound as if the loss in Brooklyn was more boxing than basketball.
Casey said after Game 3 that Lowry had ''been in a 15-round bout.''
Now the Nets can land the punch that would really put the Raptors on the ropes.
Brooklyn takes a 2-1 lead into Game 4 on Sunday night, looking to deliver the biggest blow yet.
Nets guard Shaun Livingston says Saturday that everybody is banged up but ''it's not really time to feel sorry for anybody.''
Lowry was still sore Saturday but the point guard plans to play Sunday.
