Toronto finds themselves on a rare losing streak when they welcome in the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday.
The Raptors, who sit 2nd in the Eastern Conference, finds themselves losers of 2 in a row and falling further back from the Cavaliers.
The Grizzlies have won a pair of games in a row and find themselves in 5th in the West, 4 games back of 4th place Los Angeles.
Memphis has gone 4-2 in the month of February and has rattled off back to back wins against Brooklyn and now Minnesota.
The Grizzlies continue to push toward that 4 seed, but they also can’t ignore the rearview mirror.
A compliment of teams sit at the most, 5 games behind them. They close out the month with some very winnable games after this matchup with Toronto.
They’ll get the Lakers back to back and then have Phoenix and Denver to close it out.
However, 4 of their last 5 are on the road. This season, Memphis has gone just 12-13 SU away from home and are averaging just 95.9 points per game this season on the road.
The Grizzlies did get the better end of this matchup back on 1/21 in Memphis as they took down the Raptors 92-86. Memphis stepped up defensively as they held Toronto to just 31.8% shooting from the field.
The Raptors used many winning streaks in the first half of the season to jump team by team in the East.
After running off 3 straight wins, Toronto dropped 1 before the break and 1 after the break. Losses to Minnesota and Chicago have given the Raptors a bit of a speed bump entering this one against Memphis.
Against Chicago, Toronto blew an 11 point first quarter lead and got outscored by 14 in the 3rd quarter as their defense completely collapsed.
The Raptors have allowed just 97.7 points per game this season, but they conceded 116 to the Bulls in Friday’s loss.
Toronto got production offensively from Lowry, Valanciunas, and DeRozan who had 27, 25, and 22, respectively. The other 2 starters in James Johnson and Luis Scola had just 2 points each.
