Raptors Versus Nets Friday, December 2nd 2022 Game Preview

Raptors take on a hot Nets team tonight, and they need to bounce back.


The Toronto Raptors are coming off a tough loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, but they'll look to rebound when they travel to Brooklyn to take on the Nets on Friday night. In contrast to recent home wins over the Dallas Mavericks and Cleveland Cavaliers, Toronto trailed by 31 points and allowed 74 points in the opening half.


The Nets are still eighth in the Eastern Conference, but they'll provide a tough test for the Raptors. However, the Raptors are a talented team, and they'll be looking to prove that they can actually beat this Nets team after losing their first two meetings this year.


The Raptors have won two of the last three games and are almost fully healthy again. Nests have won three in a row and four of the last five games, and they seem to be gaining momentum. The Brooklyn Nets currently have a winning record thanks to Kevin Durant's productive scoring. Duran is on a tear at the moment. Durant has had at least 30 points, five assists, and five rebounds in the last four games. In addition, the Nets have been better defensively lately.


So far this season, the Raptors have been having a hard time making shots from behind the three-point arc. They will rely on their length and athleticism to win this game. The Raptors are also a good rebounding team, and they will need to use that to their advantage to beat the Nets.


There’s no doubt that the Raptors can beat this Nets team, but they have to start by slowing down Kevin Durant. Tonight's game against the Nets is an important one for Toronto. The Raptors need to prove that they can bounce back from a tough loss and get a win against a hot team.
