Brooklyn Nets vs Toronto Raptors: NBA preview and its predictions

Match Details:

Brooklyn Nets vs Toronto Raptors

11th February 2019

06.00 AM, IST

Venue: Scotiabank Arena

 

Match Preview:

Toronto is coming off slipping on their own banana in an overtime loss against the Brooklyn Nets. Denver took them down several nights before that, with a victory over the 76ers sandwiched in between. The Raptors are humming on both ends of the court, nestled just under the Bucks in terms of both offensive and defensive rating.  With Kawhi Leonard aboard, their switchability defensively is frightening between the rangy wingspans of Danny Green, Pascal Siakam, Serge Ibaka, O.G. Anunoby and a cavalcade of other guys. Let’s recall though that the Raptors shot just 20% from deep in that one (on 45 attempts) so expect a little regression in this game.
