The fans at Air Canada Centre will be treated to a game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors when they take their seats on Tuesday.

ABOUT THE NETS (7-19): Two wins and three single-digit losses in the last six games counts as a step in the right direction for Brooklyn. Center Brook Lopez went up against rookie sensation Joel Embiid on Sunday and held his own with 22 points, nine rebounds, eight assists and four blocks in the narrow setback. “It’s tough, and our guys are absolutely playing with heart,” Lopez told reporters. “There’s no quit in us. We can’t let go of the rope.”

Toronto is in the bottom half of the league in field-goal percentage defense (45.4 percent), and coach Dwane Casey believes the effort against the Magic is what the team needs to bring to each game. “I thought that was a good bounce-back for us after our lackluster defensive game against Atlanta, but that’s the way we have to play,” Casey told reporters. “If we’re going to be important or relevant in this league, we have to play with that defensive intensity every night.” The Raptors should have a chance to win every night as long as they bring star guard DeMar DeRozan, who is riding another hot streak with 30 or more points in four straight games.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Raptors listed as 14.5-point favorites versus the Nets, while the game’s total is sitting at 223 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

The Toronto Raptors bounced back from a tough loss in the best way possible – by crushing their next opponent. The Raptors will try to bring the same level of intensity back home when they make a brief stop to host the Brooklyn Nets before embarking on a six-game road trip that will take them through Golden State and San Antonio.

Toronto was beginning to show signs of slippage on the defensive end during a four-game winning streak and finally had it bite them when they allowed the Atlanta Hawks to shoot 53.5 percent from the floor in a 125-121 home loss on Friday. The Raptors looked like a different team when they traveled to Orlando on Sunday and scored 28 points off 20 turnovers in a 109-79 drubbing of the Magic. The Nets, who gave up 118 points to that same Orlando squad on Friday, could not pull out a win at Philadelphia on Sunday and dropped a 108-107 decision that left them with setbacks in four of the last five contests. Brooklyn is close to the Eastern Conference basement and is staring at a brutal stretch of three games in four days with a back-to-back hosting Golden State on Thursday and visiting Cleveland on Friday after finishing up in Toronto.

The Raptors were a 109-79 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Magic. They covered the -6-point spread as favorites, while the total score (188) made winners of UNDER bettors.

Brooklyn lost its last outing, a 108-107 result against the 76ers on December 18. The Nets earned a push in that game as a +1-point underdog, while the 215 combined points took the game PUSH the total.
