Despite being short a few players, the Raptors still have Kawhi Leonard. He is having an MVP-type season, averaging 28 points, 8 rebounds, three assists and two steals. He is currently ranked in the top-5 on Kia's MVP Ladder. He is a major part of Toronto's lead in the East.
Celtics followers may get a look at the newest member of the Raptors, Patrick McCaw. He played for the Warriors - had a cup of coffee with Cleveland, playing only three games - and was signed by Toronto as a free agent.
Boston is still sealed in the 5th slot in the East, and pre-season, it was expected for the Celtics and Raptors to be fighting for first place. That has not happened, not yet. The Celtics will try to put an end to Toronto's 5-game win streak - and to also end their own 3-game losing streak. It would be a nice time to turn things around for the guys in green.
