Game #49: Toronto Raptors @ Sacramento Kings
Radio: TSN 1050
So, the Toronto Raptors (26-22) are currently 2-1 going to the 4th game of this road trip against the Sacramento Kings (16-32).
Things to watch for
The return of the Sacramento Guys:
How much emotion will play into this game. Not much I suspect because each player has been to multiple stops. But nonetheless, there is always that feeling of going back to an old home. Gay will have too play against his former team mates as well. Raptors are 20-10 since the trade and 18-10 since the Sac guys joined us. Kings are still below .500 since the trade (11-19)
DeMar DeRozan vs. Rudy Gay:
Both players have gone up against each other bunch of times in practice. Rudy will most likely guard DeMar, but it'll be interesting to see who wins the battle.
Demarcus Cousins vs. JV
This match up is going to pose problems for JV as Cousins is a MUCH bigger guy than him. He will have to box out. The only time these guys went at it, Cousins had 20-13 and JV was held to 3-3.
Raptors will win this game if they play defence. Sacramento can pose trouble with their offence. Their defence is not as good and Raptors will have to take advantage.
