The Raptors Need Equal Contributors

Most of the headlines are covering Fred Vanvleet’s 54 points explosion against the Orlando Magic. However, if the Raptors want to beat the Nets they can’t rely on just one player.

While Vanvleet was brilliant in the Raptors’ last match, Kyle Lowry and Pascal Siakam combined to shoot eight of 22 from the field. Norman Powell was a solid offensive contributor, but against the league’s third-best offense, the Raptors need to focus on keeping up.

Toronto could find an answer on their bench. While Nurse has preferred the defensive contributions of DeAndre’ Bembry and Yuta Watanabe as of late, the offensive potential of second-year guards Terence Davis and Matt Thomas could change the game.

Editor’s Picks

Brooklyn Must Combat Toronto’s Speed

The Brooklyn Nets are one of the best scoring teams in the NBA, but an offensive stat where the Raptors trump them is in the fast-break points department.

Brooklyn’s lack of defensive focus is sure to cost them their fair share of baskets, but they must ensure that they prevent easy baskets.

The Nets have allowed teams less talented than them to stay in games, so they can’t afford to do so with a team as skilled as Toronto. Expect Brooklyn to start quickly, and try to keep their output throughout the match.

Raptors Key Players: (G) Fred Vanvleet & (G) Kyle Lowry

With Toronto sending rookie point guard Malachi Flynn to the G-League bubble to compete with Raptors 905, all playmaking duties fall upon the pair of six-foot guards. Expect heavy minutes for the two.

Vanvleet will certainly be a priority for the Brooklyn Nets’ defence. After scoring 54 points on tremendous efficiency in his last game, he’ll need to ensure his passing game is up to snuff as Brooklyn will certainly try to slow him early.

Lowry on the other hand is a contributor all over the court, posting a triple-double in his last game. For the Raptors to win, Lowry must be a threat on the offensive side of the ball and being a threat to score.

Nets Key Player: (F) Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant will certainly be looking for revenge when he faces of with the Toronto Raptors, who he last faced in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals where he suffered his season ending achilles injury.

Durant was massive in the Nets’ last game against the Clippers, scoring 39 points on 15 of 23 shooting against one of the league’s best perimeter defenders, Kawhi Leonard.

He’ll likely be facing Leonard’s defensive protege in OG Anunoby, while also fending off multiple Raptors defenders. Toronto run a small lineup like Brooklyn, so Durant should find success in the paint.
