As part of a ten game of NBA Friday night of action the Toronto Raptors play the Brooklyn Nets. Both teams last played Wednesday with the Raptors beating Philadelphia and Nets losing to the Thunder.
Last season, Toronto swept the Nets as they have the past three seasons. The Raptors hold the all-time record having bested the Nets in 50 of their 89 matches.
Kawhi Leonard was the key cog spearheading the victory for Toronto over Philly with 36 points, 9 rebounds, five steals, an assist, block and five treys (in six attempts). Leonard’s defense was equally impressive as was the entire Raptors squad.
If the game in the 6ix was a litmus test for the retooled 76ers the lesson learned was despite adding Jimmy Butler their depth is lacking.
Toronto reformulated their lineup construction this season with OG Anunoby and Jonas Valanciunas moving to the bench. Between this player shuffle and navigating multiple injuries it’s taken the bench mob a while to find a groove, however through the last five games they’ve turned a corner.
Wednesday the unit was key to the victory outscoring Philly reserves 41 to 18. Valanciunas dominated playing a mere 18 minutes scoring a season high 26 points (18 in the fourth quarter) along with 8 rebounds.
Malachi Richardson (illness) missed 76ers game and is questionable Friday. Norman Powell (shoulder) remains out rehabbing, expected to return mid December.
Leading by 23 points the Brooklyn Nets looked to have the Thunder down and out, but like many games this season the Nets lost yet another heartbreaker in clutch time. Russell Westbrook recorded his 108th triple-double of 21 points, 15 rebounds and 17 assists moving him past former Nets star Jason Kidd for third all-time.
Paul George scored 25 points in the fourth quarter including the game winning trey in a 47 point effort. This game marked the ninth time the Nets have either entered overtime (twice) or been in a game decided by three points or less. Unfortunately, the Nets record in these matches is 3-6.
Treveon Graham (hamstring) out until late December while Caris LeVert (foot) will be out until at least February.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Brooklyn Nets NBA Prediction:
The Raptors know the Nets will bring effort, push pace and jack up tons of perimeter shots so Toronto can’t afford to underestimate Brooklyn. Both squads are decent perimeter defenders with Toronto ranked sixth and Brooklyn 11th.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors road prowess continues. Raps -8.5
Watch for a segment in the game when the Raptors seemingly flip a switch defensively and suddenly pull away. More often than not this dynamic occurs at least twice per contest. The Raptors are the only NBA team with double digit wins on the road (10-2).
