Game Preview: Raptors vs. Nets

Tonight presents a pretty important divisional game for a relatively unchallenged front-running Raptors team when the host the Brooklyn Nets (7 PM, TSN2, Sportsnet 590 The FAN)

Since players from the Raptors locker were pulled from the lineup before the December 8th game in Los Angeles, the remaining group has banded together and integrated pieces fairly seemlessly from Sacramento. Beating the Lakers that night in Kobe Bryant’s return was considered an upset, as was beating the Bulls in Chicago (twice). Same with Dallas, definitely in OKC and indubitably versus ...

DeMar DeRozan struggled early but picked up his shooting in the fourth quarter on his way to a game-high 26 points in the win and the performance also re-wrote the Raptors’ record book.

DeRozan’s third 20+ point scoring effort in his last fourth games vaulted him past Jose Calderon for number five on the Raptors all-time scoring list, which seems astounding for ...
