Two teams on opposite sides of the spectrum in the East go at it on Tuesday night as the Toronto Raptors and Brooklyn Nets do battle.
Toronto sits in 2nd place, just 2.5 behind Cleveland and will have a chance to pick up that 0.5 game with Cleveland going down on Monday night.
Brooklyn looks to just build some momentum heading into next season as they have built a foundation they hope to use going into next season while playing spoiler.
The Nets probably picked the wrong time to trade away their first round pick for next season.
Brooklyn look to play the spoiler role the rest of the way this season as they have no reason to tank with no draft pick next year in the 1st round. Defeating Toronto on the road on Tuesday would certainly fall into that spoiler role.
Brooklyn has dropped 3 of their last 4 and that includes one of their worst defensive performances ever.
The Nets allowed the Timberwolves to shoot 68.4 percent and saw them rack up 132 points in a 14 point route. The Nets defensive problems have lingered all year long and things don’t bode well for them as they continue their 9 game road trip on their 8th stop.
The Nets have gone just 7-23 SU away from home this season.
The Raptors continue to put the pressure on the 1st place Cavaliers, but Saturday’s slip up did not help out any causes.
With the loss they fell back 3.0 games, but did pick up a 0.5 game with the Grizzlies win on Monday over Cleveland. Now, the Raptors can grab that other 0.5 game with a win here to get back to 2.0 games. The Raptors have been right there all season long, but sooner or later they will have to pick up ground without losing any in between.
Toronto had a very rare collapse last time out as they led by as many as 18 against the Rockets, before ultimately falling to the Rockets.
The good news for Toronto, they take on a Nets team that they’ve dominated. The Raptors have won both meetings this season by an average of 14.5 points.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
This is a clear mismatch game, no doubt about that obviously.
The Nets defense is just too horrendous to overlook here as they allowed Minnesota to put in 132 points. Think about what a hungry Raptors team can do with a chance to pick up a 0.5 game.
