Toronto has been on fire lately, winning eight straight games and 15 of their last 16 games. On Friday, the Raptors defeated the Western Conference leading Houston Rockets, snapping their 17 game winning streak. DeMar DeRozan has been excellent this season and would be in the MVP conversation if not for James Harden’s dominant season. The USC product is averaging 23.7 points, 5.2 assists, and 4 rebounds per game. While Kyle Lowry has seen his scoring decline this season, the Raptors have been able to reduce his minutes this season because of their stellar bench. Fred VanVleet and Delon Wright have provided Dwane Casey will two ball handlers off of the bench, both capable of scoring.
The Nets are again in the running for the worst record in the NBA and again do not have their own first-round pick. However, Brooklyn does have the Raptors first round pick that received in the summer for taking on the contract of DeMarre Carroll. During his two seasons in Toronto, Carroll struggled with injuries, he has had a bounce-back season with the Nets. While Carroll is having a bounce-back season, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Spencer Dinwiddie are both having breakout seasons, recording career highs in scoring. Since returning from injury, D’Angelo Russell has split minutes with Dinwiddie. However, Russell has been very inconsistent, scoring more than 20 points in three of his last seven games but has also scored eight or fewer points in three of his last seven games.
The Raptors have won the first two games played against the Nets this season. DeRozan scored more than 30 points in both games against Brooklyn.
