Oddly the last time the Toronto Raptors lost at home their next game featured the Brooklyn Nets. Tonight they'll look to begin...
It had the makings of a letdown, but turned into Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan staking their All-Star claim.
He'll be more familiar in street clothes, anyway.
Toronto Raptors kick off a 7-game home stand vs the lowly Nets on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. In the game day...
DeMar DeRozan will almost surely opt out. Well, yeah, of course.
The Raptors botched a defensive set they shouldn't have, then quickly corrected. That, and more.
It was messy, and at times chaotic. But through it all, Jonas Valanciunas was a stabilizing force in Brooklyn.
The Raptors kind of need this.
The Raptors are now the third seed, and if the playoffs started today, would face Milwaukee.
The Raptors concede 114 points to the Nets after talking about defense all week long.
If it's possible for a team that's 16 games over .500 to hit rock bottom, this was it.
This rivalry will never get old. The Raptors’ inconsistencies on the other hand, are heading in the opposite direction.
