- Title : NBA: Toronto Raptors @ Brooklyn Nets, play off
The NBA Playoffs are finally upon us. The Toronto Raptors, the number two seed in the Eastern Conference, take on the seventh-seeded Brooklyn Nets in game one of the best-of-seven first round matchup on Monday afternoon. The Raptors won the season series over the Nets, winning three of the four meetings between these two teams this season
It's been six long years since the Brooklyn Nets won a playoff series, but they are hoping lightning strikes twice, as they are facing the Toronto Raptors, the same team that they ousted in 2014 in the first round.
Both teams are averaging over 110 points per game this season, while the Nets are giving up over 112 points per game for the season. Brooklyn however, has played much higher scoring games since restart, scoring and giving up 119,9 points per game fort nearly 240 points per game combined in Orlando. These 2 teams have been especially hot offensively in their last 3 games as the Nets are averaging 123,3 points per game in their last 3 games, while the Raptors are averaging 118,7 points per game in their last 3. Despite the 18 game margin between these 2 teams in the standing this will be a tightly contested series, staring with a close one in game on.
My prediction; Over 221 points
