What you need to know about the Raptors

It was close but no cigar for the Raptors as they fell 111-108 to the Chicago Bulls on Monday. Toronto's loss came about despite a quality game from small forward OG Anunoby, who had 22 points and five assists in addition to eight boards. He was one of six Raptors in double-figures including Khem Birch, who chipped in with 11 points off the bench.

Toronto is still without its best player in Pascal Siakam (shoulder) but he has resumed practicing since undergoing offseason surgery. In his absence, rookie Scottie Barnes has shown why he was the No. 4 overall pick out of Florida State. Barnes is averaging 16.8 points and 8.5 rebounds, both of which are top-two averages amongst rookies.

What you need to know about the Pacers

Meanwhile, Indiana came up short against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday, falling 119-109. Indiana's defeat came about despite a quality game from power forward Domantas Sabonis, who posted a double-double with 21 points and 13 rebounds along with five assists. However, center Myles Turner was ineffective in 14 minutes as he produced just five points and four rebounds.

The Pacers will be shorthanded Wednesday with T.J. Warren (foot) out and Caris LeVert (back) questionable. They combined to average over 35 points per game for Indiana last year, and neither has suited up this season. Indiana is getting a nice contribution from Chris Duarte as his 19.8 points per game leads all rookies.
