The Toronto Raptors host the Memphis Grizzlies tonight in a battle of two teams riding solid winning streaks.
Sportsnet - 7:00 PM EST
We previewed this one earlier today so there's not a ton more to say on the topic. Both the Toronto Raptors and Memphis Grizzlies come into this contest on solid winning streaks (four straight for the Grizz, five for the Raps) so something's going to have to give.
We're hoping obviously it's not Toronto, who beat the Washington Wizards last night, but not in a completely convincing fashion.
Tonight's test promises to be a lot rougher as their opponent possesses many attributes which have given Toronto problems this season, from dominant, physical big men, to quick and aggressive guards, are present with Memphis.
On the other side though, the Grizz will likely have to deal with an extra-motivated Rudy Gay, taking on his former team for the first time since being traded to Toronto, and teammate DeMar DeRozan, putting together his best basketball of the season.
Throw in a little Ed Davis action (this marks his first return to Toronto) and even Jerryd Bayless, and this one has the makings of a very intriguing affair...one we can only hope the Raptors come out on top of.
