The Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors meet for the 1st of 4 games this season when they collide Friday at Barclays Center. Here’s how to get connected.

The Brooklyn Nets will be looking to end a trio of losing streaks Friday night at Barclays Center when they host the Toronto Raptors for a 7:30 p.m. Eastern tipoff.

The Nets (8-18) have lost eight in a row overall, have lost their last eight games at home and have dropped 12 consecutive games to the Raptors (21-5), who enter the night with the best record in the NBA.

Brooklyn’s most recent loss was a gut-wrenching one, a 114-112 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder at home on Friday in which they led by as much as 23 points and were up by 20 early in the fourth quarter.

More from Nothin' But Nets

The Nets were outscored 39-19 in the fourth period by the Thunder, who took the lead with 3.1 seconds remaining on a 3-pointer from Paul George.

Brooklyn had trouble with an inbounds play following a timeout and was unable to get a tip at the rim on a second inbounds with 0.1 second left.

Allen Crabbe scored 22 points for the Nets. Joe Harris added 19 in his return from a three-game absence with a hip injury, while D’Angelo Russell and Spencer Dinwiddie each logged 17 points, with Dinwiddie adding two blocked shots.

Jarrett Allen went for 15 points and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had team-high totals of nine rebounds and six assists.

Toronto has won nine of its last 10, getting back on the winning track Wednesday at home in a 113-102 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Kawhi Leonard led the Raptors with 36 points, nine rebounds and five steals. Jonas Valanciunas added 26 points off the bench and Serge Ibaka finished with 18 points. Pascal Siakam added six assists and Kyle Lowry notched three steals.

The Nets are 39-50 all-time against Toronto since the Raptors began play in 1995, with the Raptors’ current 12-game winning streak — which began Jan. 6, 2016 — the longest by either team in the series.

The New Jersey Nets won four straight from Jan. 10-April 12, 2003.

Each team’s highest-scoring game was set in a 137-136 triple-overtime win by the Nets in London on March 5, 2011.

The Nets’ highest total in regulation came in a 130-115 victory at East Rutherford on Feb. 13, 1998, while the Raptors posted theirs in a 132-113 win at Toronto on Jan. 13, 2017.

The most lopsided game in the series was a 106-69 win by Toronto at East Rutherford on Nov. 2, 2007. The Nets had their biggest win at East Rutherford on Jan. 15, 1996, in a 108-83 victory.

Two players hold the single-game high with 42 points. Vince Carter turned the trick for New Jersey against his former team in Toronto on Jan. 8, 2006. Chris Bosh had 42 for the Raptors in an overtime loss at Toronto on Nov. 21, 2008.

In regulation games for the Raptors against the Nets, Carter holds the mark with 39 points, which he did three times, most recently on Oct. 29, 2003, at Toronto.
