The Toronto vs. Brooklyn prediction is about the upcoming match in the NBA that will take place on December 15. The Toronto vs. Brooklyn prediction revolves around a famous rivalry between the two teams in the NBA. Both the teams play in the Eastern Conference's Atlantic Division. The feud began to get intense nearly two decades ago. This was when All-Stars Vince Carter was traded to the Nets. The teams did not meet in the playoffs until a few years later. This was when the Nets won against the Raptors by a close margin. They met again eight years ago, where the Nets defeated the Raptors. But this time, it happened in more than six matches. Five years later, the teams met again in the playoffs. This time, the Raptors convincingly defeated the Nets in consecutive matches.

 

The Raptors have a seventeen-match win advantage against the Nets. They also have the longest winning streak against them, which is a dozen matches that happened six years ago. The offense of the Raptors revolves around Fred VanVleet. He has had a decent average of nearly twenty points and six assists. OG Anunoboy leads the offense of the Raptors with an average of twenty points. The Canadian team has won many of its matches against weaker teams. So, this will be the hardest match for them so far. But they are the type of team that can shock anyone. But they are far away from being a championship-contending team. The Raptors have begun their campaign for this year's NBA well. That may be because the team is playing in Canada after an entire season. 

 

Due to pandemic restrictions, the team had to play their home matches in Tampa, Florida, in the previous season. But, after their return to the home arena in Toronto, the team has begun their season with an overall winning record. Before their defeat against the Cavaliers, the team was winning. They won nearly all of their four consecutive away matches. But the team is missing a superstar player in Pascal Siakam. But the emergence of rookie Scottie Barnes has been a great upside for the franchise.

 

Toronto vs. Brooklyn Prediction for Key Players

 

Kevin Durant continues to be a major player for the Brooklyn team. He is coming off a nearly thirty-point performance against the Detroit Pistons. He is among the leaders in the NBA in the scoring department. There is a little concern about the load he has to carry for the team this season. But he has completely recovered from his injury and is looking unstoppable. But the duration of his time playing matches is better. Heading into the match against the Raptors, his scoring should be a major factor for the Nets. The offensive schemes of the Nets give him enough chances at the basket to score. With Patty Mills, Joe Harris, and James Harden being the perimeter threats, the team's floor spacing allows him to easily isolate and function in the mid-post.

 

The Toronto vs. Brooklyn prediction says that going into the match, the Raptors will look to one of their best performers to step up and give a great performance again. OG Anunoby plays a major role in the offensive schemes of the team. He is a robust two-way player. This season, the player has also made a big jump in his offensive stats. He averaged nearly sixteen points in the previous season. He has a record of twenty points in this NBA season. He is coming off a more than twenty-point performance recently. He will seek to play a major role in spearheading the offense of the Raptors against the emerging Nets. Scottie Barnes and Fred VanVleet are also major figures who can give robust scoring. But the success of Anunoby augurs well for the team's chances of defeating the Nets. He can help establish a steady flow while also guarding Durant and Harden.

 

Toronto vs. Brooklyn Prediction Based on Previous Match

 

Kevin Durant scored thirty points in the previous match between the two teams last month. James Harden scored more than fifteen of his twenty-seven points in the fourth quarter. The Brooklyn Nets won another consecutive match. They defeated the Toronto Raptors by a margin of thirteen. Durant said the defense was there when they required it to be. They made shots and got stops. Harden missed his second consecutive triple-double. He finished with more than seven assists and nine rebounds. Blake Griffin said that when Harden is playing at that level, he boosts the team, and the whole team goes to a different level. Harden missed his initial shots from beyond the arc before connecting with only four minutes to play in the fourth quarter. He extended a lead of seven points for the Nets to double digits. The player added a few more from a distance in the fourth quarter.

 

Durant said that James was special in that quarter. Griffin had more than thirteen points and ten rebounds. Patty Mills scored more than twelve points to assist Steve Nash to get the win in his initial match in his home nation as an NBA head coach. Nash said, ''That means a lot. This is a very special place for me. Not only Canada but Toronto. I've spent so much of my time here. I have so many close friends, relationships, and memories in this city. For me, this is definitely a sweet win. Like we said since Day 1, he's been unbelievable this season at both ends of the floor, rebounding, scoring, facilitating.'' Durant reached more than nineteen points for another consecutive game. He extended both his career-best streak to start the record of the Nets for twenty-point matches at the beginning of a season.

 

For the first time, Durant was playing in Canada after tearing his Achilles tendon while playing for Golden State in the NBA finals a couple of years ago. He said that the last time he was here was one of his lowest moments. For him, it was good to come back to play and see the fans again. The forward of the Raptors, Pascal Siakam, made his first start of this year's NBA season after missing the initial nine matches because of left shoulder surgery. He scored more than fourteen points in half an hour. Siakam said that his legs were heavy, and he had gone out of breath after only a couple of minutes.
