Welcome, as tonight the Toronto Raptors travel to Brooklyn to take on the Nets.

This will be the first game of the season for Brooklyn as their initial opener against the New York Knicks was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. This showdown marks what the Nets are hoping will be a new beginning in many ways. This is their first season in Brooklyn, so they're hoping to come out and challenge the Knicks for the heart of the city.

The plan to do that goes through their revamped roster. The lineup included Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, Gerald Wallace and Joe Johnson. The offensive potential is one not seen in these parts since the days of Vince Carter.

For Toronto, this season is about continuing to climb back up the ladder. In their opener, the Raptors fell to the Indiana Pacers 90-88 on a George Hill shot with 2.1 seconds to go. Their roster included additions of Landry Fields and Kyle Lowry. The rest of the starting squad features Jonas Valanciunas, DeMar DeRozan and Andrea Bargnani. 

The game is being broadcast on RSN, and will tipoff at 7:30 p.m. EST, so check back soon for this exciting opener that will mark the first NBA game at the new Barclays Center.
