Raptors vs. Nets Game Thread: Pre-game updates, TV info, and more

Toronto is looking to keep things rolling on the road, this time in Brooklyn. Fortunately, they’ve beaten the Nets nine straight times.

So far 2018 feels extremely comfortable. I don’t mean that weather-wise, because of course it has been miserable outside as of late. And I don’t mean in relation to what’s actually going on in the world because, uh, have you read the news lately? But I do mean in the incredibly specific example of the Toronto Raptors — with them, everything is peachy keen.

Case in point: the whole roster is healthy, DeMar DeRozan just won Player of the Week (again), each and every game brings out an opportunity for some cast of characters, or perhaps a solo performer, to emerge the hero. As of late, it’s been DeRozan of course, or stretches from Kyle Lowry, sometimes Delon Wright, even Jonas Valanciunas. What a time.

The Nets, meanwhile, continue to be cagey but ultimately non-threatening. As you’ll read shortly, many of their prominent players (potentially even more than reported this morning) remain out. And at 15-24, I remain untroubled. Hubris? Perhaps. Let’s watch.

Here’s Chicco Nacion’s preview for Raps-Nets, and here are the latest details.

Where to Watch:
