TORONTO -- In the moments before the Toronto Raptors took the court for Game 4 in Brooklyn, they huddled in the locker-room and watched footage of their fans gathered back home in Maple Leaf Square. The Raptors went on to win Game 4 and even up the series and say theyve drawn inspiration from the swell of support theyre receiving in their home city. "I told the team, the fans are doing their part, weve got to do our part as a team, as a group of guys to lead the fight on the court, because the fans are behind us 100 per cent and theyre loud and theyre very proud. And they should be," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. The Raptors expect a repeat of Sunday, when a capacity crowd of 2,500 red-clad fans jammed Maple Leaf Square to watch the game on the giant screen outside the Air Canada Centre. Thousands more packed the roads leading up to the ACC in a raucous outdoor celebration similar to the citys playoff party during the Maple Leafs brief run last year. "Oh man, its unbelievable, our fan base," Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry said. "It makes you want to just be a part of it. Things that were doing right now and the way the fan base is going out there, we want to go out there and play hard and give them a reason to keep coming back and packing Maple Leaf Square and packing the ACC. "We need our fans, we love our fans. . . We cant wait to see (Wednesday) night, the vibe and the energy were going to get." The series has been a spirited battle even before the first ball was tossed up, thanks to general manager Masai Ujiris now-famous F-bomb. Its been a fierce fight on the court. Casey said Kyle Lowry looked like hed been through a 15-round bout after Game 4, and the coach expects both teams to come out swinging in Game 5 on Wednesday. "Its not going to be all smiles and bubble gum and fruitcakes. . . Its going to be a street fight," Casey said. "Thats the way weve got to come out, with that mentality." The Raptors, said Lowry, were caught on their heels Game 1 of the series. The less-experienced Raptors -- three of the teams starters had never made a playoff appearance -- werent prepared for how physical post-season action would be. They lost that game. They put up a fight in Sundays Game 4 victory in Brooklyn, holding the Nets to just three baskets in a scrappy fourth quarter. But they were forced to battle back from a lackadaisical third quarter, a bad habit the Raptors havent been able to shake all season long. "Weve got to compete like that for 40-plus (minutes)," Casey said. "The third quarter has been our nemesis. . . thats what we have to remedy, coming out of the locker-room at halftime with that desperate disposition." Despite being the No. 3 seed, the Raptors were considered underdogs in this series based on playoff experience. DeMar DeRozan said theyve played with a chip on their collective shoulder with that underdog mentality all season, so this is nothing new. "We understood coming into this series that people still counted us out, people still doubted us, people said: Brooklyns experience, this, that and the third. . . whatever you want to hear," said DeRozan, who struggled through playoff jitters in Game 1 but has shone for Toronto in the three games since. "Weve been counted out so long, weve got the underdog mentality. I dont think thats going anywhere." Playoff experience was a major theme when this best-of-seven series began. Future Hall of Famer Paul Pierce alone -- with 136 playoff appearances -- had played in almost as many post-season games as the entire Raptors roster combined. None of Torontos starters -- Lowry, DeRozan, Terrence Ross, Amir Johnson and Jonas Valanciunas -- had ever started in a playoff game. DeRozan, Ross and Valanciunas had never played in the post-season, period. The Raptors say that four games in, experience doesnt mean much anymore. "Its just who wants it more from here on out. Thats what it boils down to now," DeRozan said. Added Casey: "I dont think were as wide-eyed and bushy-tailed as we were in Game 1." Ross remains the one Raptor struggling with the playing on the big stage of the post-season. The athletic sophomore, who poured in 51 points in a game earlier this season, scored zero in Game 4. Casey and the players remain fiercely supportive of the 21-year-old. "Im not going to do anything to crush that young mans confidence or what hes brought to the table thus far," said Casey, pointing out that Ross has done some good things on the defensive end. "And its not about Terrence Ross, its about our entire team," the coach added. "The spotlight should not be on him in any way whatsoever. The reason why we win or lose is not because of what Terrence Ross did or didnt do."

MILAN, Italy -- A late goal by Paul Pogba steered Juventus to a 1-0 win at Parma in coach Antonio Contes 100th match in charge on Saturday, while Napoli also kept the pressure on Serie A leader Roma with a 2-1 win at home to Catania. There was more misery for AC Milan as it slipped to a 2-0 defeat at home to Fiorentina. Milan was resoundingly jeered by the fans, who also unfurled a large banner demonstrating their displeasure. Vice-President Adriano Galliani left the stands after Fiorentinas second goal and there were reports after the match of a tense dressing-room meeting with the squad and Barbara Berlusconi, daughter of the club president. Conte rested several players ahead of Tuesdays Champions League match against Real Madrid but was forced to send on Andrea Pirlo and Fabio Quagliarella as they struggled to carve out opportunities. Quagliarella had an immediate effect two minutes after going off the bench with a stunning long-range shot which crashed off the crossbar and into Pogbas path, allowing the young Frenchman to coolly slot into the bottom corner in the 77th minute. Amauri had Parmas best chance with a backheeled effort which fizzed just past the left upright from close range. "We won as Juve, as a great team who wanted the win and ran very few risks," Conte said. "We played the long game and did better, so I am happy with the lads performance, especially considering that we play Real on Tuesday and some could have been thinking about that. But it wasnt like that." Juventus and Napoli are provisionally two points behind Roma, which has won all of its matches and travels to Torino on Sunday. Catania had not won in Naples since 1960-61 and Jose Maria Callejon gave Napoli the lead in the 15th minute with another stunning strike, ccurling the ball into the top corner from 20 yards.dddddddddddd. Napoli doubled its lead five minutes later when Lorenzon Insigne rolled the ball across the outside of the penalty area for Marek Hamsik to hit first time into the top left corner. Catania had not scored since Luigi De Canio replaced Rolando Maran as coach nearly two weeks ago, but it got back into the game in the 25th minute when Lucas Castro turned in Maxi Lopezs cross. Next up for Napoli is Marseille in the Champions League on Wednesday, then a visit to Juventus next weekend. "It was an important win but we suffered a lot," Gonzalo Higuain said. "Catanias goal put us a bit in difficulty. These three points are good for our league position. Now well think about the Champions League." In Milan, former captain Massimo Ambrosini was given a warm welcome by the home fans, who displayed a banner paying tribute to his 18 years at the club. The Fiorentina midfielder was also given a standing ovation when he was substituted. Juan Vargas broke the deadlock in the 27th minute when his free kick took a deflection off Sulley Muntari in the Milan wall to wrongfoot goalkeeper Gabriel and go into the bottom left corner. Fiorentina all but sealed the game in the 73rd when Gabriel pushed Joaquins cross straight at Borja Valero, who tapped it into an empty net. "This squad is really making the most out of all its resources," Fiorentina coach Vincenzo Montella said. "It was a very difficult game because apart from anything else both teams could have been nervous after the last round of matches. But we managed to control the game." Milan, which remains provisionally 10th, has to quickly pick itself back up for Wednesdays Champions League match at Barcelona.
