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.
