TORONTO (AP) — For Raptors' All-Star DeMar DeRozan, the waiting between playoff games is the hardest part.

The Brooklyn Nets, however, don't mind one bit.

The slow pace of Toronto's first-round playoff series against Brooklyn, with two days off between each of the first three games, isn't really to DeRozan's liking. Extra down time after a disappointing Game 1 wasn't what the Raptors guard wanted.

"It's tough," DeRozan said Monday. "You have a tough game, you're used to getting right back out there and making up for it."

DeRozan will get his chance when the Raptors host the Nets on Tuesday night, hoping to bounce back after a 94-87 defeat in Game 1.
