What you need to know about the Raptors
The Raptors received a tough blow on Sunday as they fell 109-97 to the Boston Celtics. One thing holding Toronto back was the mediocre play of center Precious Achiuwa, who did not have his best game: he finished with only six points on 3-for-11 shooting in his 36 minutes on the court. Fred VanVleet led Toronto with 27 points to go along with six rebounds.
The Raptors will be without OG Anunoby (hip) and Goran Dragic (not with team), while Gary Trent Jr. (calf) is questionable. With these absences, Toronto will rely even more on VanVleet who leads the NBA with 38.2 minutes played per game. Look for the Raptors to attack the offensive boards for extra possessions as they lead the NBA in offensive rebounds while ranking last in defensive rebounds.
What you need to know about the Grizzlies
Meanwhile, the Grizzlies took their game against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday by a conclusive 128-101 score. With Memphis ahead 76-52 at the half, the matchup was all but over already. The top scorer for Memphis was shooting guard Dillon Brooks (21 points) while the Grizzlies' bench poured in 63 points.
That victory came without Ja Morant (knee) who will also be out on Tuesday. Morant ranks ninth in the NBA in usage percentage so Memphis will have to use a committee to replace his scoring and playmaking skills. However, Morant's loss may be addition by subtraction on the defensive end as he's struggled on that end of the court as Memphis has allowed an NBA-leading 115.6 points per game.
