NEW YORK -- The Toronto Raptors own some gaudy numbers -- an eight-game winning streak, 49 victories and a dominant 29-2 mark against losing teams.
The Raptors get a chance to notch their ninth straight victory, reach 50 wins for the third time in team history and get their 30th win against a sub-.500 team on Tuesday night when they visit the Brooklyn Nets.
Toronto (49-17) is on its longest winning streak of the season after coasting to a 132-106 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday afternoon. If not for a three-point overtime loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on Feb. 22 at home, the Raptors would be on a 16-game winning streak.
Toronto is averaging 112.2 points and shooting 47.1 percent from the field this season. During this winning streak, those numbers are 114 points per game and 47 percent shooting with an offensive rating of 114.5. >> Read more
