Toronto Raptors point guard Cory Joseph is starting in place of Kyle Lowry (rest) on Tuesday versus the Brooklyn Nets. What It Means: It's a long season, so the Raptors have decided to give their stud point guard a rest versus the hapless Nets. Tuesday will be Joseph's first start of the season. He should expect to see close to 30 minutes versus Brooklyn, making Joseph an excellent punt play in DFS. DeMarr DeRozan will see an increase in usage as well with his backcourt mate taking it easy. Our models project Joseph for 13.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 2.1 threes, and...

Shorthanded Raptors bury Brooklyn, 119-109

DeRozan and a career night from Cory Joseph led the Lowry-less Raptors. With the voting period almost up, the talk of the NBA is on All-Star Game selections. While some are praising a piping hot DeMar DeRozan, the consensus is the correct one: the Toronto Raptors go as far as Kyle Lowry allows them. Lowry anchors the team’s best units, he’s sensational on both ends, and he’s Toronto’s beating heart (to use a cliché). That’s why, even against the eight win Brooklyn Nets, there was naturally some doubt about the Raptors as Dwane Casey made the decision to rest Lowry on the front...

Woes: Raptors hand Nets 11th straight loss, 119-109

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — The Nets are running through the season with their woes. The Nets had a chance to redeem themselves after a 132-112 blowout in Toronto this past Friday. They also had a chance to end their 10-game skid. It never happened. And really, will it ever? With Kyle Lowry sitting out, the Toronto Raptors (28-13) defeated the Brooklyn Nets (8-33), 119-109, Tuesday night at Barclays Center. The Nets and its fans watched DeMar DeRozan and Corey Joseph singlehandedly dominate the Nets with the duo combining for 69 of Toronto’s points. The Nets have lost 11 straight game...

Raptors Hit the Big Apple for a Date with the Nets: Preview, Start Time and More

Is this the Luis Scola revenge game we’ve all been waiting for? Four days after picking up a 132-113 roller coaster win over the Brooklyn Nets, the Toronto Raptors will once again face off against the Eastern Conference cellar-dwellers. While the final score looks lopsided, the game was surprisingly close. Toronto held a slim 90-89 lead after three quarters before exploding for 42 points in the final frame. DeMar DeRozan paved the way for the Raps in a 28-point performance. We knew the Nets were going to be one of the worst teams in the NBA this year, and their 8-32 record is proof that...
