LA-Lakers
VS
Toronto
The Toronto Raptors have lost one of their backcourt players in DeRozan indefinitely with ruptured tendons, and will count on their top bench scorer Lou Williams to step in for him to make amends in the scoring department. After going on a winning streak, the Raptors lost last time around to the Mavericks and will be eager to change their fortune against the Lakers who have been struggling for most of this season. They still have a pretty deep bench including the likes of Landry Fields, Vasquez, Hansbrough, Patterson, Johnson and Hayes to help out them to share the work load.

 

The Lakers have been struggling no doubt about it and are on a 4 game losing streak dropping games to Minnesota, Memphis, Denver and Dallas. The Lakers are the worst defensive team in the league conceding over 111 points per game and have only looked at Kobe Bryant's play as their decent contribution to their team. Xavier Henry who only recently made a comeback looked like a player that was helping Kobe and Lin in the back court to create an impact, is now out for the remainder of the season with an achilles injury. The confidence in this team is not at an all time low, and even tanking the season will not help as their draft pick is going to Phoenix unless top 5 protected.

 

The Raptors look like they will take their confidence from their recent run of games, and have found the perfect opponent to resume that to build confidence in the player who will replace DeRozan as well as some bench players who will now see more minutes.
