As if five straight games where Gary Trent Jr. went for at least 30 points wasn’t enough, the Toronto Raptors get even more resources at their disposal tonight.
Yes, thanks to the return of Khem Birch from his broken nose, Toronto’s top eight are finally healthy and ready to play.

They’ll get a great test against the top team in the East, the Chicago Bulls, who are also rounding into shape. Zach LaVine, questionable earlier today with back spasms, will go ahead and play tonight; and we already know how his counterpart, DeMar DeRozan, tends to play in Toronto.
There’s plenty to feast on tonight. Without further ado, let’s settle in and watch.
