A pair of 1-1 teams meet in Canada on Monday as the Denver Nuggets and Toronto Raptors get set for battle.
Both the Nuggets and Raptors took their opening game of the season, but responded with a loss in Game 2.
While looking impressive through their first two games of the season, the Nuggets know they should be sitting at 2-0 right now.
The Denver Nuggets had a chance to put the Portland Trail Blazers to rest last time out, but Wilson Chandler missed a pair of free throws with just seconds to go to send the game into overtime.
Eventually, the Nuggets fell 115-113, to send their record to 1-1.
Denver can blame their 3 point shooting for the loss and really can pinpoint that going forward as something they must improve on.
The Nuggets shot just 6 of 23 from behind the arc in the loss to Portland and overall have shot just 14 of 47 from three point range.
They could receive a bit of a boost that could help from behind the arc as G Gary Harris may return Monday. Harris has missed the first two games with a groin injury and has been upgraded from out to questionable on Monday night.
The Raptors have plenty of talent to go around, but that talent has to start producing.
One of the key blames for the Raptors loss to the Cavs in the playoffs last year came from Kyle Lowry and his struggles shooting.
Lowry is picking up right where he left off, as he continues to struggle from the field. Through the first two games, Lowry has gone a combined 8 for 29.
With Lowry continuing to struggle, somebody has to step up and help the cause out. DeMar DeRozan did it last year and he’s doing it again this season as he has a combined 72 points through the first two games of the season.
Key in on F Patrick Paterson here, who has struggle this season through the first two games. Paterson is 3 for 11 from the field and has to get some kind of production off the bench for the Raptors if he continues to see minutes.
