The Brooklyn Nets are coming off of a tremendous win over the Phoenix Suns. While Kevin Durant didn’t start in that game, he still contributed a huge effort off the bench.
The Toronto Raptors are a versatile defensive team, but like many teams they are lacking players that can matchup well with the Nets’ stars. While they can get by on possessions with their gritty team defence, Nets stars Irving and Durant should be able to create any opportunity they want.
The pair of Irving and Durant combined for 67 points, 16 assists, and 12 rebounds in their last match. Able to account for more than half of their team’s scoring total, the two Nets All-Stars must get their role players involved to shut down the Raptors.

Nets forward Blake Griffin is coming off of his best game as a member of the Brooklyn Nets. Not only was he productive, Griffin rattled off consecutive encouraging performances.
In his last matchup Griffin posted 16 points, five rebounds, and four assists in 26 minutes of play.
On his day, Blake Griffin is a difficult player to stop. He may not have the explosiveness of years past, but against Toronto’s thin frontline he can make a real impact.
In previous matches, the Toronto Raptors have struggled to get going in games due to their lack of presence in the paint. With the addition of Khem Birch and Freddie Gillespie, the Raptors have been able to find success at the rim.
In their last game against the Cavaliers, the Raptors were dreadful from three-point range. Instead they found their success at the rim, drawing out defenders and shot-blockers and finding necessary rollers and cutters for finishes at the rim.
Usually a perimeter oriented team, the Raptors need to find success at the rim to beat the Nets. Due to the Nets’ offensive output, Toronto can’t afford to find scoring from just one area.
DUNK of the Night: April 21st
— NBA Canada (@NBACanada) April 22, 2021
The Toronto Raptors may be lacking a singular star, but two-way forward OG Anunoby has steadily shown wrinkles to his game that suggest he’s ready for a step up in responsibility.
In his last game, Anunoby posted 20 points, five rebounds, two assists, a steal, and a block in 32 minutes of play against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Surprisingly, he failed to convert on a single three-point field goal attempt.
Anunoby is a career 37.5% three-point shooter and is converting on 40.2% of his threes this season. He needs to be a threat from deep if they hope to take down the Nets. Not to mention he’ll get his fair share of time guarding Kevin Durant.
