Brooklyn Nets's Latest Performance :
The Nets are coming off an impressive win against the Hawks as they were able to climb back despite being down 19 points. The Nets won for the 13th time in 17 games by rallying from a 19-point deficit in the second quarter. It is their best 17-game stretch since also going 13-4 from March 9-April 8, 2014. Leading the way for the Nets was D’Angelo Russell he made 11-of-20 from the field for 23 points. He has scored 20 or more points in five of his last six games. Jarrett Allen continues to a beast on the defensive end blocking shots left and right. He had three blocks against the Hawks and added 11 points with five boards. The Nets are currently the sixth seed in the East and they are doing it without their starting shooting guard LeVert. It will very interesting to see how Lowry will match up against D-Low in this game. The Nets have been one of the surprising teams this season.
Toronto Raptors's Latest Performance :
The Raptors are currently on a three-game winning streak they are coming off a hard-fought win against the Hawks. They kept their best basketball until the last 50 seconds. Kawhi was able to come up with a defensive stop which led to an Ibaka dunk on the other end. To put the icing on the cake Kawhi came up with a clutch block that sealed the game for the Raptors. He finished the game with 31 points, four rebounds, six assists, six steals, a block, and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes. The six steals set a season-high and the six dimes tied it, and he hit 11-of-18 shots for what was possibly his best game of the season. Siakam hit 6-of-13 shots and 1-of-4 3-pointers for 13 points, 10 rebounds. He’s scored in double figures six straight, and in 15 of his last 16 games. He is making a very strong case to why he should be an All-Star this season. The Raptors are 17-4 at home on the year and shouldn’t have a problem against the Nets.

Against The Spread Selection: Toronto Raptors
My reason for the pick :
This game will go down to the wire as both teams are playing really well but I would have to choose the Raptors to come up on top and they will do it with their defense. Kawhi will have another great game at home as he will lockdown D-Low in this game. The Raptors have it all this season from depth to offense and defense. The Nets will put up a good fight but it will be hard to overcome the Raptors who are playing great team basketball. Go with the Raptors.
