The Toronto Raptors were looking to extend their club record 15-game winning streak in the team’s final outing ahead of the All-Star Break Wednesday evening.
The Kyrie Irving-less Brooklyn Nets had other ideas. Brooklyn finished up its frustrating pre-break slate with a shocking 101-91 home win over Toronto.
Caris LeVert led a balanced scoring attack with 20 points. Five other players put up double-digits as the Nets moved to 25-28 on the season and .500 without Irving in the mix.
Needless to say, the NBA world had its reactions to Brooklyn’s upset win. It started with Paul Pierce betting his house that the Raptors would come out on top.
The rest were pretty hilarious, too.
Raptors fans shouldn’t worry too much. They are still in line to threaten the Milwaukee Bucks’ Eastern Conference dominance once the playoffs start.
