In their last game Brooklyn lost to the Charlotte Hornets. Likewise the Raptors lost in a battle with what could be a preview of the Eastern Conference Finals when they fell to the Cavaliers.
Toronto swept the Nets last season and leads the season series 3-0 this year. The Raptors hold the all-time record having bested the Nets in 49 of their 88 matches.
The Nets saw a mini two game streak end with the loss to Charlotte Wednesday. Brooklyn is hampered with lack of depth in the front court and Charlotte took advantage.
Specifically, Dwight Howard laid down a historic night delivering 32 points and 30 rebounds. Howard joins Kevin Love, Moses Malone and Robert Parish as just the fourth player in the past 40 years to register a 30-30 performance.
When the teams last played ten days ago D’Angelo Russell scored 24 points in the first quarter (32 in the game) and hit seven consecutive treys in the frame.
Dante Cunningham is questionable as he progresses through the concussion protocol program. If he can’t play the Nets will have to deal with Toronto’s myriad of front court players.
This week Toronto had two streaks disrupted. OKC ended Toronto’s 11 game win streak and Cleveland ended the nine game road winning streak.
Toronto will look to keep a third streak alive and make it 12 consecutive wins over the Nets. Fortunately the Raptors excel when facing the sub .500 teams having lost just twice (Knicks, Mavericks) to this group.
Odds are Toronto will take their final ten games to tweak the defense and also try to rest key contributors. Fatigue is a major issue given this will be Toronto’s third game in four days (sixth in nine days). This week marks the third consecutive week they play four games including a back to back set.
Since getting a day off to rest Kyle Lowry is shooting over 62 percent from the perimeter (18 of 29). CJ Miles (flu) sat the last game and is questionable for Friday.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
Raptors are exhausted, but keeping the home record and a desire to shake off the loss will inspire the squad to deliver a two way game. That said, unlike most sub .500 teams the Nets have no reason to lose since the Cavaliers own their pick.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nets ATS
Raptors will win but 13 points seems like a lot when the team is once again playing their third game in four nights and sixth in nine nights.
