These teams made a blockbuster deal in the summer. When Toronto visited San Antonio the Spurs were all over them and this time the Raptors will be looking to return the favour at home.
This will be the first visit back to Toronto for DeMar DeRozan and it is likely to be an emotional one. Video montage and all of that.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs have a good record but things are so competitive in the West that a bad week could have them out of the playoff picture and a team like Sacramento in.
They are playing with a little less emphasis on defense this season but that seemed inevitable given the moves they have made. DeRozan has never been a defensive stud.
What he can do is score thought his 21ppg is down from what he did in Toronto last season. What is up are his rebounding and assists as the Spurs use him as their primary ball handler when he is on the floor.
Lamarcus Aldridge remains one of the most consistent players in the NBA. He is basically a 20/10 guy and he forces you to play the whole court.
Four others average between 10 and 14ppg as the Spurs look for hot hands from the outside. Rudy Gay seems to have discovered the fountain of youth this season.
Toronto comes out of the break looking to catch Milwaukee atop the Eastern Conference. It is going to be tough but they have a decent shot. They made the move at the deadline to get Marc Gasol and they have not lost a game that he has played in, even if his numbers have been modest.
If you don’t watch the Raptors often Pascal Siakam is worth the price of admission. He scored 44 points in the final game before the break and his boundless energy and emerging skills make him the most improved players in the league. On “maintenance days” for Kawhi Leonard he is even more important.
The Raptors are mostly healthy right now but will miss Fred VanVleet for a few more weeks. He was often part of the finishing unit and that injury is why the Raptors were so interested in Jeremy Lin.
