The Toronto Raptors travel to the Barclays Center to battle the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. Here's a Raptors vs Nets prediction.

Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors have been in decent shape as they've won three of their last five games overall, but they will be looking to bounce back here after coming up just short to the Cavaliers in a 105-102 road loss on Sunday. Jakob Poeltl led the team with 18 points and 13 rebounds on eight of nine shooting, Pascal Siakam added 18 points with eight rebounds and six assists while Scottie Barnes and Dennis Schroder scored 15 points each. As a team, the Raptors shot 41 percent from the field and eight of 32 from the 3-point line as they played great defense early on to hold the Cavaliers to just 17 points in the second quarter, but they let their hard work go to waste in the third quarter where they got outscored by 32-20.

Toronto Raptors Player Facts

  • Jakob Poeltl ranks 1st amongst qualified players for FG% (72.7%) this season.
  • Pascal Siakam is one of only 11 qualified players in the league averaging at least 20.0 points, 5.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds this season.

Brooklyn Nets

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have been in decent form as they've split their last eight games and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after beating the Bulls in a 118-109 win on Sunday. Spencer Dinwiddie led the team with 24 points and seven assists, Royce O'Neale and Lonnie Walker added 20 points each while Mikal Bridges chipped in with 15 points and six assists. As a team, the Nets shot 49 percent from the field and a sizzling 25 of 53 from the 3-point line as they scored just 19 points in the first quarter to fall into an early 21-point deficit, before they exploded for 44 points in the second quarter to take control and earn the impressive win.

Brooklyn Nets Player Facts

  • Spencer Dinwiddie ranks T14th amongst qualified players for assists per game (6.3) this season.
  • Mikal Bridges ranks T30th amongst qualified players for points per game (21.8) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Nets rank 30th in the league for opponent turnovers per game this season (11.7).
  • The Nets rank 29th in the league for opponent free throw percentage this season (83.5%).
  • The Raptors rank 28th in the league for free throw percentage this season (72.7%).
  • The Raptors rank 4th in the league for assists per game this season (28.1).

Peter's Pick

The Raptors are still without Christian Koloko due to illness, while the Nets are keeping eyes on Dennis Smith Jr and Nic Claxton who are both questionable. It's hard to split these two squads who are in similar form, but the Nets are still missing a few key players, so I'll lean towards the Raptors to take advantage in this spot. This should be a close one, but I'll stick with the Raptors to get the win on the road.
