It seems as though no one in Canada is meant to pay attention to the Toronto Raptors when they play pre-season games against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

For the second straight time, the Raptors and T-Wolves battle it out while the Toronto Blue Jays play a win-or-go-home game against the Texas Rangers in the MLB Playoffs. Even though the audience may be small, we'll still tee you up for the second round of Skinny Kyle vs. Andrew Wiggins. Here's what you need to know about tonight's matchup from Ottawa:

The aforementioned skinny Kyle Lowry went nuts on Monday night at the Air Canada Centre, dropping 40 points on 13-of-18 shooting in 28 minutes, which was good for a Raptors' exhibition scoring record. There's no way that's sustainable, but boy was it fun to watch. What will he do for an encore tonight in the nation's capital?

The other half of Toronto's starting backcourt, DeMar DeRozan, should be fully revved up and ready to go after getting a scheduled rest day on Monday. DeRozan hasn't looked great to this point, but hey, isn't that what pre-season is for? There is one injury to note for the Raptors. Terrence Ross will not play due to the ankle issue he suffered on Monday.

Wiggins put up solid numbers in Toronto on Monday and will look to bring his high-flying act to another Ontario city tonight. The Canadian star is coming off a 21-point performance while his brother, Nick, figures to see some playing time as well.
