Meanwhile, the Celtics will be looking to build some momentum after beating the Chicago Bulls in their last game out on Wednesday.

Why wasn't Kawhi Leonard on Kyrie Irving late?

If Toronto hopes to end their current two-game losing streak on Friday night in Boston, a complete team effort, one through fourteen, will be required.

But they out-scored Toronto 29-25 in the final frame, knotting the score at 90-90 on Irving's three-pointer. Lowry was initially devastated by news of the trade, but he's come back this season with a positive attitude about what the team can accomplish with Leonard added to the starting lineup. Norm Powell is out long-term, Serge Ibaka missed the team's last game and Green himself left Wednesday night's contest against the Detroit Pistons with lower back tightness.

Embiid had seven rebounds, three blocked shots and two steals despite playing just 26 minutes because of foul trouble and Simmons finished with 10 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

"We're not executing as much as we'd like to, obviously", said Danny Green, one of those vital newcomers being thrown into the mix. Our Bulls' analyst Kendall Gill is a big fan of the Raptors, citing the impact Leonard can bring on both ends in potential playoff series against the Bucks, Celtics and 76'ers.

"The main thing is we're going to hold it until the very last shot so that nothing bad happens and they can't get a rebound and call a timeout", Raptors coach Nick Nurse said.

"Tough times don't last, tough people do", Lowry told reporters in Boston. Zach LaVine has cooled off from beyond the arc after a hot start, mostly due to aggressive double teams limiting his opportunities. Kendall will be in Charlotte, where he'll be honored as one of the top 10 players in Hornets' history as part of the franchise's 30 year anniversary celebration.

The Celtics had been in a mini-funk the past couple of weeks, losing four of their past six, and they entered the night 24th in the National Basketball Association in scoring (105.6 points per game) and 28th in shooting percentage (.429). We send out our congratulations to KG on the well-deserved honor.
