Your Toronto Raptors, winners of 14 of their last 15 contests, look to finish the season's "first half" on a high note with a win tonight against Andrew Wiggins and the Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis.

As is our tradition, we've got a preferred Raptors play to recommend for tonight, just in case you want to have some extra rooting interest in your FanDuel lineup:
DeMar DeRozan ($8,100)
DeRozan's price has gone down a few hundred dollars over the last couple weeks, but he's still putting up solid and consistent numbers and is always capable of dropping a monster line on any given night. And what better night for the adopted Torontonian to prove his All-Star worthiness, than one in which he'll be matched up directly with Toronto/Canada's own Andrew Wiggins (a player that a certain contingent of Raptors fans would love to see replace DeRozan on the team down the road)?
Over DeMar's last six games, he's averaging 24.5 points (on 46.3% shooting), 3.2 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.5 blocks, and 2.5 turnovers, which has been good for 35.38 FanDuel fantasy points per game. The motivation of the matchup will certainly be there tonight, so it's as good a night as any to roll with one of the most reasonably-priced stud shooting guards on the market.
Now, let's jump down to the comment section one last time before the break and construct some winning lineups!
