The Raptors are having a strong season and they can set their franchise mark for wins with a win on Monday night.
Oklahoma City is a very good team but they are a notch below San Antonio and Golden State in the West. They lost to Toronto at home earlier in the season.
This would not be a sexy Finals but both of these teams are capable of getting there.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder are on a roll. They land in Toronto on a seven game winning streak and they just beat the Spurs pretty handily at home over the weekend. (The Spurs were resting several key players though…just saying).
OKC was not resting anybody and got the usual performances from their stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. They score 60 points or more than the team’s total. No surprise there.
The ongoing challenge for OKC is whether they can rely on a third option when things start to matter the most. Serge Ibaka is a nice talent but he has not developed his game to the point where he can take over when the situation dictates. And those guys aren’t great at sharing always either.
Their best offensive option after KD and Westbrook is probably Enes Kanter. He is a versatile inside player and they bring him off the bench where he often creates mismatches.
Oklahoma City is pretty much locked in that third spot in the West so it might be tough for them to find motivation when they are pushed the rest of the season.
The Raptors are enjoying their best regular season ever. Not only are they on the brink of establishing a new franchise win mark they have distanced themselves from the rest of the Eastern Conference save Cleveland.
Toronto got back to winning after dropping a couple of road contests last week. They return home to face an OKC team they upset early in the season. They are a very good 28-8 at home this season so I am not sure they should have been made the underdog.
The Raptors have the best backcourt in the Eastern Conference. DeMar DeRozan is the best midrange player in the NBA and Kyle Lowry has become one of the top point guards in the league. His defense has really jumped up a notch too this season. Combined they average 45ppg.
Toronto is still not completely healthy but they have added Jonas Valanciunas back to the lineup. There is no definitive word on when Demare Carroll will be back with the team though. He would have been handy to guard Durant.
The Raptors righted the ship with their recent win at New Orleans. It was not very taxing so they come back home nice and refreshed and ready to take on OKC.
