What to Know

The Raptors will be in front of their home fans on Friday, but a look at the spread shows they might need that home-court advantage. They will take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at 7:00 p.m. ET on Friday. The Raptors are staggering into the game hobbled by eight consecutive losses, while the Thunder will skip in buoyed by three consecutive wins.

It’s hard to win when you don’t work as a unit and post 11 fewer assists than your opponent, a fact the Raptors found out the hard way on Wednesday. Things couldn’t have gone much worse for them as they lost 123-89 to Sacramento. The result shouldn’t come as a shock considering that’s the fewest points the Raptors have scored all season.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma City earned a 119-107 victory over the Jazz on Wednesday.

The Thunder can attribute much of their success to Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who scored 31 points along with seven assists and four steals, and Chet Holmgren, who dropped a double-double on 35 points and 14 rebounds. Gilgeous-Alexander didn’t help the Thunder’s cause all that much against the Grizzlies on Saturday but the same can’t be said for this matchup.

Toronto has traveled a rocky road recently having lost ten of their last 11 contests, which put a noticeable dent in their 23-46 record this season. As for Oklahoma City, they have been performing incredibly well recently as they’ve won six of their last seven matches, which provided a nice bump to their 48-20 record this season.

This contest is one where the number of possessions is likely to be a big factor: The Raptors haven’t given up the ball easily this season, having only averaged 13 turnovers per game. However, it’s not like the Thunder (currently ranked second in turnovers per game) struggle in that department as they’ve been averaging only 11.5 turnovers per game. Given these competing strengths, it’ll be interesting to see how their clash plays out.

The Raptors came up short against the Thunder in their previous matchup back in February, falling 135-127. Will the Raptors have more luck at home instead of on the road?
