News: Valanciunas picked up right where he left off in Game 1, scoring 15 points (5-9 FG, 5-7 FT) with 14 rebounds in 35 minutes Tuesday as the Raptors downed the Nets 100-95. Impact: The undersized Brooklyn front court has had little luck in containing Valanciunas so far, and there's little reason to think that trend will change going forward. Expect the young center to continue posting double-doubles throughout the first round.(RotoWire, )

Impact: Valanciunas, like the rest of the Raptors, struggled from the field and hit less than half of his shots for the first time since Mar. 25 (a span of eight games).
