The Toronto Raptors travel to the Barclays Center to battle the Brooklyn Nets tonight.
The Brooklyn Nets have lost four of their last five and will be looking to avoid a fourth straight loss tonight after falling to the Hawks by 113-102 on Wednesday. Joe Johson led the way with 26 points on 10 of 19 shooting while Jarrett Jack added 14 points and 13 assists, but there was just no way of stopping the balanced offense of the Hawks who had already won 16 straight. With the loss, Brooklyn drops to 18-27 on the season and 10-13 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors have won five of their last six games and are going for a fifth straight win after cruising past the Kings by 119-102 on Wednesday. Louis Williams led the way with 27 points off the bench while six other players finished in double figures, but it was the three-point shooting that really did it as the Raptors shot a sizzling 17 of 34 from the three-point line to blow the Kings away. With the win, Toronto improved to 31-15 on the season and 18-7 at home.
In ATS trends, the Raptors are 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 against the Eastern Conference, while the Nets are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following a loss of more than 10 points and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games overall.
I really can't see anything but a comfortable double digit win for the Raptors in this one, especially if they shoot lights out like they did in their last outing.
