Brooklyn's first-round matchup against Toronto will begin on Saturday, April 19 (YES, 12 p.m.). One of the keys to the series will be who gets the edge between each team's outsanding point guards, Kyle Lowry and Deron Williams.

Lowry authored a breakout season in guiding the Raptors to the Atlantic Division crown, averaging 17.9 points, to go with 7.4 assists and 4.7 rebounds. But Lowry is also known as a capable defender, and will be put to the test by one of the very best in the game in the Nets' Deron Williams. Lowry spoke with YES Network's Matthew Stucko about the challenge in containing Williams.
