With yet another chance to build on a win over a top tier opponent, the Toronto Raptors look to make a run before the All-Star break as they sit six games out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, currently held by the Milwaukee Bucks.
The possibilities are one to ponder upon. With a two-game winning streak in the past there was no telling if the team could hang with the best of them. With Kyle Lowry finally anchoring the offense smoothly and Rudy Gay complimenting the game of his fellow guards, hope in a major run can be instilled throughout Raptor nation.
Tonight's opponent, the Denver Nuggets, have taken 15 of of the last 17 matches from Toronto, including a tough 113-110 victory in their most recent matchup on Dec.3. Coming into the ACC the Nuggets (33-19) have been 9-1 through their last 10 games, the lone loss being a thrilling triple-overtime match-up with the Boston Celtics Sunday night. The Nuggs will be looking to get back on track against Rudy Gay and the revamped Raptors.
