TOR: Find Better Offensive Opportunities

The Toronto Raptors are a defense-first type of team. Due to that, they aren’t particularly balanced on the offensive end of the court – as shown through their performance against the Hornets.

The Raptors shot just 39.5% from the field in their last game against the Hornets, also converting on just five of their 26 three-point shots on the evening. To say they were settling for jumpers would be an understatement.

Toronto were only able to get back in the game due to their defensive intensity and ability in transition. If they want to win their final game, the Raptors must find some rhythm in scoring the ball.

Raptors Key Player: (F) Precious Achiuwa

The Toronto Raptors acquired Precious Achiuwa in the middle of their Summer League campaign, but he has more than made his presence felt in three games.

Achiuwa has averaged 16.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 1.33 blocks in 26.1 minutes per game for the Toronto Raptors. He’s been massive for the Raptors defensively, as Achiuwa has welcomed the switch on defense.

In his last game of the Summer League Achiuwa will be up against a similarly energetic big man in Alize Johnson. It will be interesting to see how Achiuwa matches up against a player who can challenge his energy.

BKN: Take Care of the Ball

The Brooklyn Nets rely on their backcourt to shoulder the scoring burden. However, with that pressure on their guards, the Nets have been inconsistent when taking care of the ball.

Through their four games, the Brooklyn Nets are third in the Summer League in turnovers committed with 18 per game.

Compounded on the fact that the Toronto Raptors’ defense forced 24 turnovers in their last game, the Nets need to be concerned with their ball security.

Nets Key Player: (G) Cam Thomas


Cam Thomas has been excellent for the Brooklyn Nets through the Las Vegas Summer League. The leading scorer of the tournament, he’ll have his toughest test against the defensive-minded Toronto Raptors.

Through four games Thomas is averaging 26.5 points on 41.6% shooting from the field. He’s also been incredibly aggressive, getting to the free-throw line 9.8 times per game and converting on 84.6% of his attempts.

In the Raptors Cam Thomas will come up against one of the most versatile defensive units in the Summer League. Sure to be aggressive, Thomas will need to commit to ball security as much as he does scoring.°
