The Brooklyn Nets hit the road having won nine of their last 13 games, but facing their toughest back-to-back set of the season so far, and just their third overall. It’s also the start of a stretch of three games in four days.
They’ll be in Toronto Saturday night to face the defending champion Raptors, then return to Brooklyn to host the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday.
“Tough test. Yeah, tough task,” said Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson. “Tough back-to-back, especially with the quick turnaround the next day. But we’ve got to focus on Toronto, try to go get that one. We think they’re an elite team. We think they’re going to compete for a championship. I think I said that in the preseason when we played them. I don’t want to mix my words. Both these teams we’re going to play are championship contenders, and it’s a great challenge for us.”
Toronto Raptors have a 16-8 record (13-11 against the spread) and are sitting in the 5th place of the East. They have five consecutive losses and in their last game they lost at home against the Clippers with a 92-112 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Pascal Siakam with 24.5 ppg, adding a team high 8.3 rebounds per game. He is followed by Kyle Lowry with 19.1 ppg, 4.8 boards and 6.8 assists per game. Bottom line – the team needs to get back on track.
