The Oklahoma City Thunder have lost three in a row.

The Toronto Raptors have won three of their last four.

Something's gotta give right?

Yep, Toronto. The Raptors may get Jose Calderon back this evening but a win over the Oklahoma City Thunder will be no easy task. The Thunder have lost only five games all season in OKC, and the Raps haven't had much road luck this season, in particular against teams with winning records as they've lost six of their last eight in that capacity.

The HQ's Sean Tepper spoke of the "Trap Game" theory in our preview of the match, and I tend to agree. But while I expect a closely fought affair as a result of a slow start by Oklahoma City, I do think the Thunder end up blowing this one open late and getting the W.

Let's hope. Suddenly the Raptors, despite Friday's loss, are at risk of dropping as far as ninth in the race for Anthony Davis with only a couple weeks of action left.

GO THUNDER!
