Sports - Raptors drop expletive and game to Nets in playoff opener

By Steve Keating TORONTO (Reuters) - Sparked by a stinging expletive the NBA playoffs got off to an explosive start as the Brooklyn Nets landed the first blow in a suddenly bitter Eastern Conference first round match-up with a 94-87 win over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday. Out of the playoffs since 2008, Toronto`s return to the postseason was both eventful and controversial, upping the ante in the best-of-seven series. With A list celebrities, including rappers Drake, Jay-Z and Beyonce, occupying courtside seats, an embarrassing technical malfunction and a jaw-dropping expletive delivered by Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri to thousands of frenzied supporters at a pre-game pep rally, the first game of the NBA postseason offered a little bit over everything. A super-charged atmosphere greeted players and fans after allegations that the experienced Nets had tanked their final few regular season games to get a preferred match-up with the youthful Raptors rather than face the Chicago Bulls.

Toronto (Canada) (AFP) - Toronto general manager Masai Ujiri apologized Saturday for a foul-mouthed, fan-baiting speech at a rally prior to the Raptors` NBA playoff opener against the Brooklyn Nets.

Sports - Heat playoff run could decide James` future in Miami

The Miami Heat may not be entering the playoffs as the top seed but they are still very much the team to beat, and anything less than a third consecutive NBA title could lead to the breakup of their Big Three. No club has won three straight titles since the Los Angeles Lakers in the early 2000s, and the 16-team field for this year`s playoffs, which begin on Saturday, has no shortage of contenders for the NBA`s Larry O`Brien Championship Trophy. The San Antonio Spurs, who were a whisker away from winning last year`s NBA Finals, and the Indiana Pacers, eager to avenge last season`s loss to Miami in the Eastern conference finals, are just two of the many teams feeling good about their chances. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh joined forces in 2010 with the goal of creating a dynasty in Miami by stockpiling NBA titles but enter the postseason facing questions about team chemistry and depth.
