Game 8 - Nets @ Raptors - Friday, January 6, 7:00

New, comments

Andrea Bargnani is on a roll. He scored 31 points in Toronto’s win over Cleveland Wednesday night, his second 30-plus night of the season and his sixth straight game of 20 or more so far this season. DeMar DeRozan has two straight 20-point games and has developed a deadly three point shot, hitting eight of his last 12 shots from deep.

They're 3-3 and have a two-game win streak. In other words, these are not your old Raptors. Moreover, Coach Dwane Casey has them playing defense and playing hard. In those last two wins, they beat the Cavaliers by 15 and the Knicks by five.

For the Nets, the injury report still looks a lot like one in the NFL. Brook Lopez is of course out. Damion James is doubtful, Marshon Brooks is questionable and Kris Humphries and Deron Williams are probable. Avery Johnson expects an injury update on Lopez later today. After decent performances against the Celtics, expect Jordan Farmar and Jordan Williams to get more time on the court.
