The Toronto Raptors are back in action tonight as they are in Cleveland to take on the Cavaliers. The two teams squared off just four days ago in which the Raptors won 98-91 in Toronto. Terrence Ross and Jonas Valanciunas led the way for the Raptors in that game, combining to score 38 points. Both players will be called upon to have another strong game tonight. 

The Raptors have won two in a row and five of their last six. The Cavs have lost two in a row after winning six straight. This is the second of three meetings between the teams. The last game in the season series will be played on March 25 in Cleveland.

Here are some notes for tonight's game:

  • The Cavs are 12-4 in their last 16 at home against the Raptors.
  • The Raptors are coming off a season-high 24 turnovers in a win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday. They will need to protect the ball against a Cleveland team who can get up and down the court in a hurry.
  • Raptors forward Amir Johnson left Sunday's game against the Orlando Magic with an ankle injury. He participated in the morning shootaround and expects to play tonight.
  • The Cavs will still be without Dion Waiters (knee), C.J. Miles (ankle), and Anderson Varajao (back)

Projected Starters

Toronto Raptors: Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Terrence Ross, Amir Johnson, Jonas Valanciunas

Cleveland Cavaliers: Jarrett Jack, Kyrie Irving, Luol Deng, Tristan Thompson, Tyler Zeller

Tonight's game starts at 7 pm. ET and can be seen on TSN.
