The Raptors come in small favorites when they welcome in the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night.
Toronto has entered a mini skid here as they’ve dropped 3 of their last 4, which includes a horrible home loss to Sacramento last time out.
Dallas comes in off one of their most impressive defensive performances of the season that saw them hold Memphis to just 99 points in a 97-88 win on Friday.
Dallas is finding success with contributions coming from everyone.
On Friday, it was one of those days as even backup center JaVale McGee jumped in on the fun as he finished with 10 points in 18 minutes to help Dallas to a win.
SF Chandler Parsons finally looks like he is gaining his health back as he had his best performance since returning from microfracture surgery.
Parsons finished with 16 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists. He also played in a season high 32 minutes, which indicates he’s certainly near or at 100% following the surgery.
Dallas will likely need more help as PG Devin Harris is slated to miss his 2nd straight game. The PG has been battling a hamstring injury and will continue to test it during shoot around and see how he feels.
The Raptors had their most sluggish performance last time out as they saw the Sacramento Kings come into Toronto and knock them off 104-94 on Sunday.
The loss sent Toronto to their 3rd in 4 tries as they continue to get more and more frustrated and it showed during the post game interviews. Head coach Dwane Casey called his teams play completely unacceptable and used the word “terrible” to describe it.
The words terrible and unacceptable cannot describe DeMar DeRozan’s play as he one again had a solid performance Sunday. DeRozan finished with 28 points and 7 rebounds in the loss as he continues to produce for Toronto.
Patrick Patterson also had a solid performance off the bench as he add 18 points and 8 rebounds.
The struggles came from the defensive end as the Kings shot 53% from the field and hit 9 3 pointers.
Toronto has won 4 of the last 6 in this series.
