Toronto Raptors vs Brooklyn Nets (By: Miyagi)
The Nets still rank first in the league in points allowed from Center while they rank second in rebounds gather by opposing Centers.
Ibaka is the main Center for the Raptors and has a bigger role since Valanciunas (who is out either way) and Monroe are terrible fits for a team that needs spacing.
Ibaka has an easy matchup today against J. Allen, with Lowry feeding him he will be a threat in the low post while he is also expected to get several open looks from the perimeter, which is one of Allen's weaknesses. Ibaka also has the edge in rebounding against the 'soft' Allen, on both ends, and I can see him going above his average of 1.9 offensive rebounds while also get the job done in defense that's why his total of points and rebounds seems to be a much better option here.
