Wednesday night, the Brooklyn Nets face the Toronto Raptors at Bell Centre in Montreal. Here’s how to watch or stream the game, plus up-to-date injury data.

The Brooklyn Nets venture to Canada Wednesday night to face the Toronto Raptors, with the plot twist being that they will not be in T.O., but rather the game is at Bell Centre in Montreal as part of the NBA Canada Series.

The Nets have never played in Montreal, while the Raptors are playing there for the first time since holding a preseason game in the arena annually from 2012-15. Toronto has never lost at Bell Centre.

Brooklyn (1-1) comes in off a 110-108 overtime win Monday night against the Detroit Pistons at Little Caesars Arena, the first of three straight road games for the Nets to close out the preseason.

Toronto (2-1) last played on Friday, a 120-82 victory over Melbourne United, a National Basketball League club from Australia, at its usual home venue, Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.

The Raptors swept the Nets last season, taking all four meetings — not a surprise since Toronto was a 59-win team that had the best record in the Eastern Conference while Brooklyn won 28 games and missed the playoffs for the third consecutive year.

In regular season play, Toronto leads the Nets 50-39 in the all-time series and has won 12 games in a row dating to the Nets’ last win over the Raptors on April 3, 2015. The teams haven’t met in the preseason since before the Nets moved to Brooklyn in 2012.

That last preseason meeting was in 2006 in Toronto.

The Raptors made some major changes in the offseason, firing NBA Coach of the Year Dwane Casey and promoting former assistant Nick Nurse to the top spot.

Toronto also traded All-Star DeMar DeRozan and young big man Jakob Poeltl to the San Antonio Spurs to get former two-time Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard and shooter Danny Green.
