Game Preview

The Raptors close their five-game homestand on Wednesday with a matchup against the Nets.

It's the second meeting between the two teams this season. The first went down to the wire, with the Raptors leaving Brooklyn with a 123-117 victory.

Pascal Siakam (33) and Kyle Lowry (30) led the Raptors in scoring with a combined 63 points while Chris Boucher provided a spark off the bench with 17 points, nine rebounds and two blocks.

It was a quiet game for Brooklyn's All-Star trio. Kyrie Irving was limited to 15 points and Kevin Durant was pulled after 19 minutes of play because of health and safety protocols. James Harden finished with a 17-point, 12-assist double-double, but he attempted only eight shots in the loss.

The Raptors could face a very different Nets team on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, the Nets revealed that Harden has suffered a setback during rehab on his strained right hamstring, sidelining him indefinitely. Additionally, Durant missed Brooklyn's matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday with a left thigh contusion, although he is reportedly considered to be day-to-day.

The Raptors, meanwhile, could be getting a big boost - not a single one of Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby are on the latest injury report.

The Raptors are still fighting for a spot in this season's Play-In Tournament, entering Wednesday's contest half a game behind the Chicago Bulls for the 10th seed in the Eastern Conference. The Nets are still in the running for the No. 1 seed, currently trailing the Philadelphia 76ers by half a game.

The final meeting between the Raptors and Nets this season will take place on Tuesday, April 27.
