The Toronto Raptors will continue their road trip in Dallas where they'll take on Luka Doncic and the Mavericks at 8:30 p.m. ET.

What to Watch For

  • Any time the Mavericks are on the schedule, it's a chance to watch Doncic and Toronto's crazy schemes to stop him. He's not quite putting up the gaudy numbers he has in years past, but he dropped 27 points, 12 assists, and nine rebounds the last time he faced the Raptors and is always ready to explode offensively even with the double teams he'll certainly face. 
  • The Raptors have played very well in three of their last four games, hanging tight with the Phoenix Suns and Miami Heat and knocking off the Milwaukee Bucks. Their defense has looked great, but there's only been one win to show for it. Toronto is going to have to get over the hump in some of these games and actually clinch a victory.
  • Toronto played seven players in their last game, using Chris Boucher and Justin Champagnie as the lone reserves. That's an exhausting and unsustainable brand of basketball. Expect the Raptors to open it up just a little bit, adding Yuta Watanabe, presumably, off the bench.
