The New York Nets will welcome the Toronto Raptors this Friday for a duel at Barclays Center. The game is scheduled for 7:30 PM EST.
Let’s see how these teams are coming into this matchup. Let’s start with the Nets, coming off a thrilling win against the Washington Wizards. The Nets are in eighth place in the Eastern Conference, far behind the first place Celtics. Their offense averages 111 points per game on 50% shooting from the field.
Defensively, they currently allow an average of 110 points per game. The ninth lowest amount of points allowed. The truth is that their defense falters quite often costing them a lot of points.
On the other hand, the Raptors are coming off a loss to the New Orleans Pelicans (126-108). Like the Nets, the Raptors have struggled with their defense, allowing the Pelicans to shoot from the field on several occasions, and will no doubt need to put more pressure on the Nets to avoid a two-game losing streak.
Toronto is in seventh place in the Eastern Conference, just one place above the Nets. Their offense averages 110 points per game. It is the 19th team with the most points per game. It is led by Anunoby, who averages 18 points per game and shoots 48% from the field.
The Raptors’ defense also falters, allowing 109 points per game. They allow their opponents to shoot 35% from the three-point line and are grabbing 43 rebounds per game. They will have to be even more sure of missed shots if they want to avoid losing the game.
The stats are quite similar, although the Raptors have a better defensive rating. A close game is expected, these teams know each other very well and I don’t think that playing at home will be enough for the Nets.
