The Philadelphia 76ers have been struggling of late, and the Toronto Raptors hope to keep that streak alive tonight.

Time for a win.

The Toronto Raptors are batting .500 over the past 10 games and with two tough upcoming games against the Miami Heat and LA Lakers, they need a W to stem the recent tide.

The Philadelphia 76ers have lost eight of their last 10 by contrast, so tonight represents a pretty damn good opportunity to come away with a win.

Of course, Philly will have something to say about that. No, the team hasn't played very well of late, but they still have a number of players such as Jrue Holiday that have given the Dinos fits in the past.

Holiday recently spoke of his team's issues, not sure what to think:

"It's pretty mind-boggling," Holiday said. "You never know what's going on. You just go out there and try and play hard every game and try and figure it out."

And head coach Doug Collins is struggling for answers too:

"The disappointing thing for me is, night to night I don't know what I'm going to get." "I can't find answers. It's not like I'm not trying."

It'll be up to Toronto tonight to execute from the jump, and keep Philly, a team they're trying to catch in the standings, in a state of confusion.
