The Brooklyn Nets take on the revamped Toronto Raptors Monday night at Scotia Bank Arena looking to avoid a 5th loss in 6 games. Toronto has won 4 straight.

The Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors meet for the third time this season when they tangle Monday night at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, with the teams splitting their first two meetings.

Brooklyn (29-28) beat the Raptors at home on Dec. 7, with Toronto (41-16) returning the favor to the Nets exactly one month ago on Jan. 11.

More from Nothin' But Nets

The Raptors won’t be quite as short-handed as they have been their last two games after signing two-way player Chris Boucher to a multiyear full contract and adding forward Malcolm Miller from their Raptors 905 affiliate in the NBA G League for the remainder of the season.

Those moves came in the wake of dealing at the trade deadline last week that saw Toronto send five players out while getting just one back in return.

The Nets come in with four losses in their last five games after taking a 125-106 defeat at home Friday night at the hands of the Chicago Bulls. Brooklyn never led after the first quarter and Chicago’s hot shooting enabled the Bulls to steadily pull away.

D’Angelo Russell led the Nets with 23 points and six assists. Jarrett Allen added 12 points and 10 rebounds and Caris LeVert finished with 11 points and five steals in just 15 minutes in his first game action since Nov. 12.

The Raptors extended their winning streak to four games Saturday night with a 104-99 road win over the New York Knicks. Kyle Lowry gave Toronto the lead for good with a 3-pointer midway through the fourth quarter.

New York got as close as three on three different occasions, but Lowry iced the game with a pair of free throws with 8.1 seconds left.

Lowry led the Raptors, who had just 10 players dressed, with 22 points and two blocks. Serge Ibaka added 15 points and 13 rebounds, Kawhi Leonard had 11 points and six assists and Fred VanVleet added six dimes.

As a franchise, Brooklyn is 40-51 against Toronto, which joined the NBA as an expansion club in 1995. The Raptors own the longest winning streak in the series, a 12-game run from Jan. 6, 2016, to March 23 of last season. The Nets took four straight from Jan 10-April 12, 2003.

The teams played their highest-scoring games against each other in a 137-136 triple-overtime victory for the Nets in London on March 5. 2011.

In regulation, Toronto’s 132-113 win at home on Jan. 13, 2017, is the highest by either team. The Nets had a 130-115 win at East Rutherford on Feb. 13, 1998.

The Raptors also own the biggest blowout of the series, a 106-69 victory at East Rutherford on Nov. 2, 2007. The Nets’ largest margin of victory was in a 108-83 win at East Rutheford on Jan. 15, 1996.

The high individual game in the series came on Jan. 8, 2006, when Vince Carter scored 42 points for the Nets against his former team in a win at Toronto. For the Raptors, Chris Bosh had 42 points in an overtime loss at home on Nov. 21, 2008. In regulation, Carter had three 39-point outings, the last on Oct. 29, 2003, at Toronto.

Since coming to Brooklyn in 2012, the Nets are 8-18 against Toronto. Their longest streak came from Nov. 3, 2012-Jan. 15, 2013, in the first three games the teams played after the Nets’ move from New Jersey.

Brooklyn’s highest scoring game was in a 127-122 overtime loss at Barclays Center on Jan. 30, 2015. Their top total in regulation came in a 114-109 victory at Barclays Center on April 3, 2015.

The Raptors posted the largest victory of the Brooklyn era in a 120-87 win at Toronto on Dec. 15, 2017. Brooklyn’s biggest win was a 109-93 triumph at Toronto on on Feb. 4, 2015.

Individually, DeMar DeRozan has the highest-scoring games of the Brooklyn era with a pair of 36-point outings, most recently in a win at Barclays Center on Jan. 17, 2017. For the Nets, Brook Lopez scored 35 points in a loss at Toronto on March 8, 2016.

Both Lopez and Jarrett Jack scored 35 for Brooklyn in an overtime loss at Barclays Center on Jan. 30, 2015.
