RHJ had two rebounds and a steal in six first-half minutes. Johnson did not play for the second straight game.
Toronto trailed 80-74 heading into the fourth after trailing by as many as 14 in the first quarter.
Game 3 is scheduled for Friday at 10:30 a.m. MST on NBATV.
Aaron Gordon missed that game with a strained hamstring and his status for Thursday is uncertain.
Remember: All NBA playoff games are taking place in the Disney World bubble in Orlando.

Kurucs tried to bust up OG’s pretty face. Send Rondae after him.

Let’s get TD or Matt Thomas this half. Rondae isn’t adding much to this matchup

One of the Nets biggest advantages in this series: Rondae Hollis Jefferson. The more RHJ minutes the better, he makes them 10x easier to defend

It’s also inevitable he wastes at least 2 possessions for them on offensive with a Rondae Hollis Jefferson special reverse 360 layup

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson sets the screen, allowing Kyle Lowry to have the open lane to attack the basket.
Raptors down three.

I will donate to charity if i never have to see Rondae hoop

I don’t know how Chris Chiozza is supposed to do anything with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson guarding him

I’ll say this for Rondae Hollis-Jefferson; he’s one of those rare players where you have no idea what’s going to happen when he gets his hands on the ball.
