Portland Trail Blazers
Portland won in Boston on Wednesday, 97–92, behind 33 points from Damian Lillard. The Blazers shot 6-for-33 from 3-point range but Boston was 5-for-28 itself.
The Blazers only got 13 points off the bench and eight of them came from Enes Kanter, who also ripped down seven rebounds. He won’t travel with the team for this game due to immigration issue. He’s wanted by the Turkish government for his outspoken comments about the president.
Kanter was newly acquired and he’s far from a star but his absence will be felt. Zach Collins and Meyers Leonard will step in in his place as backup bigs to bang with Toronto in the paint.
Otherwise, Portland may be without just Evan Turner, who missed his second consecutive game on Wednesday with knee soreness. He’s listed as day-to-day and it isn’t yet known if he’ll make the trip north of the border.
The Blazers have won all four games since resuming play following the All-Star Break, all on the road. They go to Charlotte and then Memphis after this one before finally getting back home.
Toronto, meanwhile, hasn’t played on the road since its third-to-last game prior to the break. The Raptors blew out Boston on Tuesday to go eight games up on the Celtics. Philly is within five in the Atlantic, which feels like a foregone conclusion now, given Toronto’s soft stretch schedule.
The offense was brilliant against Boston, dishing out 33 assists to just eight turnovers. Kawhi Leonard, Pascal Siakam, and Serge Ibaka combined to score 60 points with just one turnover.
Ten guys played at least a dozen minutes, too, and the Raptors are still without Fred VanVleet, who has been out for two weeks since an initial five-week diagnosis following thumb surgery.
The Raptors’ record would be good for the top seed in the conference most years but Milwaukee just won’t lose. The Raptors remain three back of the Bucks, who may not lose that many times from here on out.

That feels like the right number in this one. The Raptors are well-rested and home for one more, while the Blazers are road weary. Portland has been playing great on the road but it will catch up with them at some point.
