What you need to know about the Raptors

The Raptors lost to the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday, 98-91 which was the fifth consecutive home loss for Toronto. The team had eight turnovers and just four assists in the first half and fell behind by 11 points at halftime as it scored just 39 points. Pascal Siakam (20 points) and Scottie Barnes (19 points) were the top scorers for the Raptors.

OG Anunoby (hip), Khem Birch (knee) and Goran Dragic (personal) are out for Thursday’s game while Gary Trent Jr. (calf) is questionable. Toronto excels at forcing turnovers as its 13.0 per game rank fourth in the league and its 9.5 steals per game rank second. But the Raptors also struggle when it comes to rebounds, ranking dead last in defensive rebounds per game.

What you need to know about the Bucks

Milwaukee beat the Hornets 127-125 on Wednesday. Giannis Antetokounmpo posted a near triple-double on 40 points, 12 rebounds, and nine dimes, and he hit the game-winning layup with two seconds remaining. Khris Middleton scored 21 points as Milwaukee had seven players in double-digits.

Four of Milwaukee’s last five wins have been by 10 or more points. The Bucks’ current eight-game winning streak is tied for the third-longest of the Mike Budenholzer era (since 2018). Brook Lopez (back) and Donte DiVincenzo (ankle) remain out for the Bucks.
