Sacramento Kings vs Toronto Raptors

Aaah home sweet home.

The Toronto Raptors keep their recent string of home games going with a match tonight against the Sacramento Kings. Toronto is 8 and 5 in the friendly confines of the Air Canada Center, and will look to not only get their ninth home victory tonight, but also their ninth win in their last 10 games.

It's been an impressive run considering the club's horrific start to the season, and many questions have now surfaced as to why the Dinos seem to have turned the corner.

I've said for a while that the team's schedule, much easier over that same last 10 game span than earlier in the season, has a ton to do with it, but it's games like tonight's that will prove that test. The 12 and 20 Kings are hardly world beaters, but are 5 and 5 over their last 10, and can surprise even the league's best on any given night.

Sacto in fact beat Toronto soundly last time these clubs met, so the Dinos should be out for revenge tonight.
