There's raising expectations.

Then there's scoring a franchise-high tying 51 points.

In the wake of his monster night, all eyes will certainly be on Terrence Ross this evening as the Toronto Raptors face off against the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets are white-hot of late, winning nine of their last 10 games, and will want to exact some revenge for a loss to the Dinos about a week ago. (Yes, that lone loss in their last 10.)

Plus, they should have an easier go of things as DeMar DeRozan is sitting this one out with an ankle injury, Patrick Patterson may be playing with a face mask on, and Tyler Hansbrough still may not be playing at all.

So it's all about Lowry, Valanciunas and of course, Ross, who gets another big opportunity to shine, this time in Crooklyn.
