The raptors are finally healthy and have a very similar roster going tonight as they did in their last home match up against the Nets. That game resulted in the Raptors winning 118-91. They completely out match this Nets team and I can't see them losing at home. I've seen some books move their lines to 10 and it could be 10.5 or 11 by game time. Jump on that -9.5 if you can

Raptors win this one easily. I would go with Nets +9.5 if they had no injuries because Brooklyn always plays well against the Raptors for some reason. Today, Raptors take care of business at home.

Fansided: Brooklyn Nets: 3 takeaways from a drubbing at Toronto
As the Eastern Conference playoff race has developed this season, three things have become apparent. The Brooklyn Nets have the look of a playoff team, the East has split itself into two tiers and the Nets are not on that top level yet.
The Nets (21-23) threw an early punch at the Toronto Raptors at Scotiabank Arena Friday night, jumping out to an early nine-point lead, but the Raptors (32-12) took care of business from there, turning the game around in the second period and cruising to a 122-105 victory.
For Brooklyn, it was their seventh consecutive loss in Toronto and their 13th defeat in their last 14 matchups with the Raptors overall.
Raptors HQ: Raptors win Friday night showdown, dominate Nets 122-105
The Raptors, with Danny Green back in the lineup, played their nominal starting lineup for the first time in over a month. Toronto held Brooklyn to just 40 total points in the second and third quarters as they put forth a dominant defensive effort to take home the 122-105 victory on Friday evening.
After a shaky first quarter it all worked out for the Raptors, as they got contributions up and down the roster. Any night the Raptors have 32 assists, you'd be smart to guess a victory. Kawhi Leonard was effective as usual, notching 20 points on 9 of 18 shooting.

TORONTO (AP) -- Kawhi Leonard had 20 points and 11 rebounds, Pascal Siakam scored 16 points and the Toronto Raptors beat the Brooklyn Nets 122-105 on Friday night for their second seven-game home winning streak of the season.
Serge Ibaka added 14 points, OG Anunoby and Norman Powell each had 13, Delon Wright had 12 to help Toronto improve to 18-4 at home. They last lost at home Dec. 9 to Milwaukee.
The Raptors have won four straight overall and six of seven. The only loss in that span was Jan. 3 at San Antonio.

Fansided: Brooklyn Nets at Toronto Raptors: TV info, live stream, injury report
The Brooklyn Nets have won 13 of their last 17 games to get back into the Eastern Conference playoff hunt, a stretch that began on Dec. 7 with a win over the Toronto Raptors. The teams meet Friday for the first time since then, this time at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
The Nets (21-22) have climbed from 11th to seventh in the East since their 106-105 overtime victory over the Raptors (31-12) at Brooklyn a little more than a month ago.
Since the start of the New Year, both teams have been playing well. Brooklyn and Toronto have each won four of their five games in January and the Raptors bring a three-game winning streak into play Friday.

Toronto Raptors (53% consensus). Kawhi Leonard attempts to run his career-best streak of 20-point games to 18 when the Toronto Raptors host the Brooklyn Nets on Friday. Leonard is averaging 30.2 points during the stretch and is closing in on the franchise record 23-game streak Vince Carter recorded in 2001... http://bit.ly/2iH7p7k
Raptors HQ: Raptors welcome Nets, look to avenge December loss: Preview, start time, and more
Just over a month ago, the Raptors traveled down to Brooklyn and -- despite having a mostly healthy lineup -- managed to lose to the Nets in OT.
You might think that was one of the more embarrassing losses of this fine Raptors season, but the reality is: The Nets are... not bad! They're currently sitting seventh in the east, one game under .500, which marks significant progress from their past several seasons, in which they've been recovering from a series of disastrous management moves that saddled them with bad contracts and left them with no draft picks.
Fansided: Brooklyn Nets: 3 things to watch at surging Toronto
The Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors on Friday meet north of the border for the first time this season as two of the hottest teams in the Eastern Conference since the calendar flipped over to 2019.
Only the Denver Nuggets at 5-1 have a better record in January than the 4-1 marks posted by the Nets and Raptors (along with three other clubs in the East -- the Milwaukee Bucks, Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers).
The similarities don't end there. Toronto and Brooklyn both enter play Friday coming off tougher-than-expected wins at home over the Atlanta Hawks.

Kurucs vs. Green
The last time Toronto played Brooklyn, on Dec. 7, Kurucs was not a part of the Nets' regular rotation. Since then, the 20-year-old Latvian rookie has played in all of the Nets' 17 games and started the last 14. Kurucs, six-foot-nine with a seven-foot-two wingspan, is averaging 10.
