What to Know

Orlando was able to grind out a solid win over the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday, winning 115-106.

Meanwhile, Toronto didn't have too much breathing room in their contest with the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, but they still walked away with a 117-112 victory. Small forward OG Anunoby (22 points) and power forward Pascal Siakam (20 points) were the top scorers for Toronto.

Orlando is now 18-37 while the Raptors sit at 22-34.
