The Toronto Raptors are in the ‘Big Apple’ to take on the Brooklyn Nets tonight. The Raptors are on fire winning seven of their last ten games, but Brooklyn on the other hand has lost six of the past nine. This game is huge for the Nets as they need to keep grabbing points to maintain their seven seed in the eastern conference.
The Raptors are 2-1 against the Nets for the season series and with the way the standings are right now, if the playoffs started today, these two teams would meet in the first round. 2014 was the last time these two met in the playoffs and Brooklyn took that series in the final seconds of game 7. The Raptors are a way different team this time around and should have no problem against the Nets. Tip off is set for 7:30 tonight.
