After a lengthy double-overtime win at home against the Miami Heat, the Brooklyn Nets play the Toronto Raptors in Toronto without center Kevin Garnett. In his 36 minutes Friday night, KG scored 12 points and pulled down 10 boards. The Nets inserted rookie Mason Plumlee into the starting lineup, hoping to bring a high-energy player into an older lineup. Plumlee brings an entirely different dynamic to the Nets starting lineup: instant energy and athleticism.
Early in the first quarter, Plumlee showed off that energy with this monster dunk off the lob from Joe Johnson.
