The Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors meet Monday night at the Air Canada Centre.
The Nets are looking to avenge a 91-74 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Jan. 6, when they scored a season-low 74 points. Brook Lopez recorded game-highs with 24 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks, but 19 turnovers doomed the Nets, especially during a third quarter comeback bid.
The Brooklyn Nets could use a nice win after losing five of their last six games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 95.6 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 103 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Brook Lopez is averaging 19.6 points and 8.3 rebounds while Joe Johnson is averaging 11.4 points and 3.6 assists. Thaddeus Young is grabbing 9.2 rebounds and Shane Larkin is dishing 3.6 assists. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 32 percent from beyond the arc and 75.7 percent from the free throw line. The Nets are allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.9 rebounds per game. The Brooklyn Nets have lost seven of their last 10 road games. Willie Reed is questionable.
The Toronto Raptors look to keep rolling after winning six of their last nine games. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 100.3 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 96.8 points on 43.5 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 22.6 points and 4.6 rebounds while Kyle Lowry is averaging 20.8 points and 6.4 assists. Jonas Valanciunas is grabbing 8.9 rebounds and Cory Joseph is dishing three assists. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 35 percent from beyond the arc and 79.6 percent from the free throw line. The Raptors are allowing 37.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44 rebounds per game. The Toronto Raptors have won seven of their last 10 home games.
Brooklyn: Donald Sloan, Wayne Ellington, Joe Johnson, Thaddeus Young, Brook Lopez
Toronto: Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, James Johnson, Luis Scola, Jonas Valanciunas
Brook Lopez vs. Jonas Valanciunas. The Nets centre is about the team’s only redeeming quantity, averaging 20 points, eight rebounds and two blocked shots a night and should be a load for Valanciunas to handle; last time they met, Valanciunas had 22 points and 11 rebounds.
