Raptors fall to NBA's hottest team
By RYAN WOLSTAT, QMI Agency
After blowing a game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, the Raptors had two ways to go. Hang heads, or show some heart.
Though the Raptors chose the latter on Tuesday night in Brooklyn, the undermanned, hurting group could not quite upend the NBA’s hottest team.
Kyle Lowry overcame a sprained ankle to spark the Raptors with 19 points in the fourth quarter, but Brooklyn’s big three of Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez and Deron Williams combined for 64 points in a 113-106 Nets win.
