Raptors Blow 22-Point Lead Before Beating Nets in NBA Playoffs

May 1 (Bloomberg) -- The Toronto Raptors blew a 22-point fourth-quarter lead before defeating the Brooklyn Nets 115-113 to take a 3-2 lead in their National Basketball Association playoff series.

The Raptors finished the first half with a 26-4 run at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto to take an 18-point lead at the intermission, and built a 91-69 lead after three quarters.

The Nets, who outscored Toronto 44-24 in the final period, tied the game at 101-101, but never were able to take the lead.

Kyle Lowry had 36 points, including six 3-pointers, to lead the Raptors.

Joe Johnson had 30 points for the Nets, who host Game 6 in the best-of-seven first-round series tomorrow night.
