The Lakers continue their road trip as they make a stop across the border in Toronto to take on the Raptors.
Both teams are coming off a win, and have a had a few days off so should be well rested.
This is the first meeting this year between the two teams, but the Raptors swept the season series last year.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Lakers have caught quite the injury bug as of late. D’Angelo Russell has been sidelined for a few weeks now with a knee injury. In their last game, the revived Nick Young came down with a right calf strain and is expected to be sidelined a few weeks.
Los Angeles led by first year coach Luke Walton is very young, but they compete every night and are a very fun team to watch.
The Lakers on the season average 106.6 points per game on the offensive end. In their last game however against the Bulls they only scored 96 points but still came out with the win.
The Lakers have enough depth at the guard position to hopefully survive the injuries, but there depth is going to be tested over the next couple weeks.
Lou Williams who has come off the bench in every game this season actually leads the team in scoring with 16.7 points per game. He Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance are the main contributors off a very good bench for the Lakers.
The Lakers look to improve on their 4-6 on the road against the Raptors on Friday.
The Raptors have had an up and down season, even though they are 12-6. They started off the season good, had a little lull a few weeks in and now have reeled off four straight wins.
In those four games they have averaged 115.5 points per game well holding opponents to 100 points. They have really started to pick up the pace as of late and they really seem to have more success playing that style.
Toronto is led by DeMar DeRozan who is getting early consideration for the leagues most valuable player.
DeRozan is averaging 28.9 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game.
His sidekick Kyle Lowry is averaging 20.4 points, 7.3 assists, and 5 rebounds per game. These two together are the keys to the Raptors success.
Toronto like the Lakers have a good bench. They have the likes of Terrance Ross, Cory Joseph, and Patrick Paterson able to come in off the bench.
Although not stars they are very good role players who play a big role in the Raptors success.
