What you need to know about the Raptors
The Raptors beat the New York Knicks on Sunday, 120-105 at home. Fred VanVleet shot 7-for-13 from downtown and finished with 35 points, five assists, and five rebounds. He scored 19 points in the third quarter alone as Toronto won consecutive games for the first time since Dec. 10 and 13.
Isaac Bonga (conditioning) is questionable for Tuesday's game, while David Johnson (calf), Yuta Watanabe (protocols) and Svi Mykhailiuk (protocols) are out. Toronto will need to shore up its defense if it wants to get its third win in a row as the Raptors have shown they can't compete when allowing opponents to reach a certain threshold. Toronto is just 1-11 when allowing an opponent to score at least 110 points, but it is 15-6 when keeping an opponent under 110 points.
What you need to know about the Spurs
San Antonio lost to the Detroit Pistons in overtime on Saturday, 117-116. The Pistons hit a game-winning three-pointer with 1.9 seconds left in overtime, courtesy of Saddiq Bey. Keldon Johnson then missed a jumper at the buzzer that would have won the game for San Antonio. Bryn Forbes scored 27 points off the bench and was one of six players in double-figures.
Dejounte Murray (conditioning) is out for Tuesday's game and that's a big blow for the Spurs as he leads the team in total points, rebounds, assists and steals. Doug McDermott and Lonnie Walker IV are in the league's health and safety protocols, and those three players being unavailable takes away over 40 points per game for San Antonio. The Spurs will have to rely on their exceptional ball movement for easy buckets as the team leads the NBA with 28.5 assists per game.
