It's Drake night in Toronto but more importantly, the Toronto Raptors face the red-hot Brooklyn Nets in a battle that could play a bit part in deciding the Atlantic Division Champion come end of season.

The NBA is a funny beast. Two weeks ago, even a week ago, tonight's Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets matchup looked like a Dinos' win. It was also hardly a "must-see" game, and not just because it's Drake night at the ACC, and Drake reportedly isn't going to be there.

No, it was more because the Brooklyn Nets sucked. They were near the very bottom of the conference in terms of record and with injuries to key players like Brook Lopez and Deron Williams, hardly threatened to suddenly turn things around.

But turn around they have, winning five straight, including last night's victory over the Miami Heat.

So suddenly tonight's match-up is an intriguing one pitting two of the conference's hottest clubs against each other, and two clubs that will be fighting it out for the divisional title as the season progresses.

Harsh Dave is on the mic tonight as the Raptors look to snap the Nets' streak.

GO RAPS!
