The Raptors are currently on a 6 game losing skid and last won a game on November 18th against Orlando. Toronto is due for a win after some very close games. Last years Raptor team after 17 games was 4 and 13, so the Raptors need to win this game if they hope to match last years troublesome record. Andrea Bargnani remains questionable foir tonights match up and in the event he cannot go, Ed Davis would get his second straight start. Hopefully the Raps will have Bargs for this one as he is averaging 21.4 points in 10 games against the Suns, his highest career mark versus any opponent. Toronto will need a big performance from Kyle Lowry tonight as he takes on his former teammate Goran Dragic. Lowry needs to assert himself early in this game and set the tempo early so the Raps have an opportunity to grab an early lead. I am calling it here first, the Skid stops tonight!
More to come!
