The Houston Rockets are trying to prevent a double-digit loss streak from happening tonight if they arrive (check notes)Tampa?
Due to the COVID protocols in Canada, the Raptors had to forego their normal excavations in Toronto for the mild Tampa Bay in Florida.It has to be bittersweet for players who have a nicer climate than cool Canada, but not due to the quarantine I’m sure there are issues with family members and moving to a new city too.It’s a transition that must be difficult for players and staff alike
The raps are 16-17 and fifth in the east. Similar to the west, there are three teams in the east (Philly, Brooklyn, and Milwaukee) that are in the top league, followed by about ten teams, all of them are separated from each other within a few games
Toronto lost two games in their loss to the Heat, Pascal Siakam shot 1-6 and was absent in the fourth quarter I know he’ll go for 50 tonight but I think the Rockets dodged a bullet by not insisting on a trade for a player like Siakam in the James Harden trade The Raptors start Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet, two of my favorite players Lowry flop as many times as people thought Harden did, but I digress from the norm Powell and OG Anunoby round out the starters, which shows you the Raptors seem ready to play with small balls all day.It failed for Houston, but maybe it works for Toronto Chris Boucher and Terence Davis get off the bench, as well like her only true center, Aron Baynes
Houston has no other injuries to report than that Christian Wood is still out
