Early in the season, no one expected either team to finish this high, much less find the Raptors outperforming the billionaire-backed Nets. But both squads can each trace their success to players who disappeared from their rosters: Rudy Gay and Kevin Garnett.

Rudy Gay was not the franchise savior that the Raptors pegged him to be when they swung for his gargantuan contract from the Grizzlies while giving up Jose Calderon. Gay was an unconscious chucker, firing tons of bricks that sandbagged Toronto to a 6-12 start. The swingman has shown signs of reform in Sacramento with DeMarcus Cousins and Isaiah Thomas, but it’s Toronto who righted their ship in time.

DeMar DeRozan emerged from Gay’s shadow as a torrential scorer. Though Kyle Lowry was the subject of trade rumors for a while, he swayed Toronto’s braintrust by keying their balanced offense.

Other Raptors delivered as well, with ex-King Patrick Patterson becoming the valuable, albeit limited, low post reliever that they needed. Terrence Ross also proved himself a three-point threat this season and Jonas Valanciunas has been showing why he was a prized two-way big man prospect in the 2011 draft. The Raptors played their way into a division title and their first playoff berth since 2008, when virtually none of their players had been drafted into the league yet.

The adage that less is more proved true in Brooklyn, when the team struggled after losing Brook Lopez for the season and the rest of their stars for varying stretches to injuries. It took rookie head coach Jason Kidd a couple of months to wrap his head around the job, but he eventually figured things out.

Garnett’s absence forced the Nets to experiment with small lineups, slotting Paul Pierce at power forward, and the team has been much better for it. Big wingmen like Andrei Kirilienko and Joe Johnson let Brooklyn switch assignments without compromising much of their defense, more so when they play 6’7” point guard Shaun Livingston. Since the new year, Kidd has constructed a team that challenges opponents on both ends. That doesn’t bode well for a Raptors team that likes to run isolations for Lowry and DeRozan, as it takes away more of their options on offense.

Both teams are among the bottom 10 squads in terms of pace, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be exciting. The Raptors are the only Eastern Conference team in the top 10 in offensive and defensive ratings, though the Nets are not far behind.

Individual matchups will be key, such as whether Toronto can survive mismatches with Livingston in the post, or if Brooklyn can negate Valanciunas for significant stretches. It’ll be interesting to see how Kidd and Dwane Casey can leverage their rosters’ strengths over the duration of a series.

Nets fans have also made a big deal about going 4-0 against the defending champions Miami Heat this season, but only half of that success will translate into this series. The Nets’ “small” lineup will definitely pose problems against the Raptors’ perimeter attack, but at a cost. Brooklyn could concede some height against the Heat, who don’t prioritize rebounding in the first place. But every board against Toronto becomes more valuable, since workhorses like Tyler Hansbrough, Amir Johnson and Chuck Hayes ensure that the Raptors get the lion’s share of misses on any given night. Compounded by the slow pace that both teams play, the extra possessions will add up and could tip the scales in the Raptors’ favor.

Luckily for the Nets, the playoffs are a different beast from the regular season. Intangibles count for something here and the Nets have that in spades. Majority of their players, from Deron Williams to Jason Terry, to Jason Collins, have logged considerable time in the postseason and won’t easily be rattled on the big stage.

Prediction: Raptors in seven
