The Toronto Raptors will look to avoid a 2-0 series deficit in their first-round Eastern Conference match-up when they welcome the Brooklyn Nets to the Air Canada Centre for Game 2 tonight.  The Nets captured the first game of the series 94-87 on Saturday. The action can be seen live on TSN, TSN GO and TSN Radio 1050 Toronto NOW. Deron Williams and Joe Johnson both scored a game-high 24 points and Kevin Garnett grabbed eight boards for the Nets, as the visitors claimed the opening game of the best-of-seven series. Kyle Lowry led the way for the home team, as he poured in 22 points in a team high 44 minutes and Jonas Valanciunas delivered a 17 point, 18 rebound performance in his playoff debut in the losing cause. Raptors All-Star DeMar DeRozan struggled in his first playoff game, scoring 14 points off 3-for-13 shooting from the floor, including an 0-4 from behind the three point line. "I think with as much energy was going on, it felt like things were going faster than they were," said DeRozan, "I dont need a whole other playoff round to get ready for it. I watched a lot of film. I understand. Im definitely not going to make the same mistakes twice. Its adjustments." Raptors head coach Dwane Casey knows his team needs come out on top of their second home game before the series shifts to Brooklyn. "Its important we win," said Casey. "Going down 0-2 is very difficult to come out of. Must win? I dont think that means were done (if we lose). We want to win but we still have games to be played. It would make it very difficult. I wouldnt say its dire. Its tough, but its not over with if (we lose).” As for the mental state of his squad, Casey believes with the first game out of the way his team will be more composed and ready to rise to the level of their competition. "Were disappointed but were anxious to get a second chance at it," said Casey. "I think the second time around well get the first game jitters away, out of us. We know were fighting a veteran, crusty team thats been there before. We worked on some things, made some adjustments in certain situations that we know we can do better." Greivis Vasquez, who scored 18 points and added 8 assists for the Raptors in Game 1, does not believe the importance of the game will get to him or his teammates. "We dont feel pressure, man, at all," said Vasquez.  "We feel like the first game, we were anxious. I havent been in the playoffs in two years. A couple of guys have been in the playoffs, too, but havent been out there in a couple years." Nets forward Paul Pierce, who had a 15 point performance in Game 1, said following the game that he thrives in tough moments on the road. "I really feed off the emotions of the crowd, especially on the road,” said Pierce.  “I think its more gratifying than winning at home, I love those moments." Only 16 of 255 teams in NBA history have ever comeback from an 0-2 deficit to capture a seven-game series.

LONDON -- Only four months after publicly pleading to leave the club in the hope of joining Premier League rivals Arsenal, Luis Suarez has completed a remarkable U-turn and signed a new long-term contract at Liverpool. The 26-year-old complained in August that Liverpool had broken an agreement allowing him to leave after the club failed to qualify for the Champions League. His complaint came shortly after Liverpool had rejected a transfer bid from Arsenal for the striker. Liverpool stood firm however and Suarez began a dramatic period of rehabilitation. The Uruguay forward is the top scorer in the Premier League this season with 17 league goals in 11 starts, including a quadruple against Norwich and a hat trick against West Brom. Tipped to shine at the World Cup next year, his form has helped Liverpool climb to second in the division, two points behind Arsenal. "We have some great players and the team is growing and improving all the time," Suarez said. "I believe I can achieve the ambitions of winning trophies and playing at the very highest level with Liverpool. My aim is to help get us there as quickly as possible." Suarez missed Liverpools first six league games this season as he completed a 10-match suspension for biting Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic. It was the latest in a long line of ugly incidents involving Suarez, who was banned for eight matches for racially abusing Manchester Uniteds Patrice Evra in October 2011. Despite his habit for creating controversy, Liverpool supporters have remained loyal to their talisman.dddddddddddd "Without doubt the backing I have received from the Liverpool fans has influenced my decision," he said. "I am so proud to represent them and go out to do my best for them every time I pull on the shirt. "We have a special relationship. They have love for me and in return I love them back. I will always do my best for them and hopefully we can achieve success together." Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers made Suarez train alone after his outburst in August but the striker returned to the first-team squad before the start of the season. The Reds are aiming to finish in the Premier Leagues top four to qualify for the Champions League and could mount a challenge for the title if the team maintains its current form. "This is fantastic news for everyone associated with the club; the team, the owners and most importantly the supporters," Rodgers said. "Luis is a world-class talent and securing his services is crucial for what we are trying to achieve here. "Whats most important and most exciting is that, at just 26 years old, his best years are still ahead of him and we now know well be seeing him reach that potential in a Liverpool shirt." Suarezs contract was due to expire in 2016. Liverpool owner John W. Henry added: "We are committed to working hard to keep our best players and this is an indication that we are moving in the right direction and moving at a pace that impresses one of the best players in world football."
