The Raptors are led by the G duo of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, who ranks 3rd in the league in scoring. Lowry was solid in the Kings game, but DeRozan stunk it up only going for 12 points on 3/15 shooting
Jonas Valanciunas (14.4 ppg 10.1 rpg) played well in the loss to the Kings and he has a tall order in this game facing Clippers’ C DeAndre Jordan.
The Raptors have 4 players averaging in double figures, but it is key the Clippers play solid perimeter D facing Lowry and DeRozan, as they are combining to average more than 50 ppg.
last season the Raptors took both games from the Clippers.

Blake Griffin and Chris Paul combined for 45 points in the win over the Bulls and Marreese Speights came off the bench to chime in for 16 points.
The Clippers shot over 40% from 3-pt land in the win over Chicago and the Raptors have to keep them from getting open looks from deep.
This is not a good match up for Toronto with their defense struggling facing a Clippers’ team that has been in an offensive groove in the last couple of weeks.
The Clippers are 6-2 at home this season.
