LeBron, Cavaliers down East-leading Raptors again

What we can learn from Raptors' upcoming back-to-back

Detroit made it to Week 25 still with playoff hopes, despite all the changes the Pistons had to make during the season. Updates with new lead.

The Celtics are two games behind Toronto for the top seed in the Eastern Conference, so they need this game.

It could have been moot had they taken care of business in Boston on Saturday, essentially locking down first place in the process.

Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan, left, led Toronto with 19 points.

"Think it could be our offensive (struggles) carrying over to the defensive end", DeRozan said. In other words, this game should be a much better indicator of how these two teams stack up.

If Jose Calderon is going to outplay Toronto All-Star Kyle Lowry, the Raptors have no shot against the Cavaliers in the playoffs.

Here are the Stars, Studs and Duds from Boston's 96-78 loss at Toronto. "We've still got work to do", Drew said. We've got to get that back. In fact, depending on what happens Tuesday, with Toronto in Cleveland and Boston in Milwaukee, the Celtics could potentially overtake them Wednesday evening. Boston scored 80 in a January 18 loss to Philadelphia.

"There's value to winning the next game and preparing to win the next game", Stevens said. "They were very physical, they were very good". Boston's previous low was six, set twice.

"Right now we've got to find our rhythm on both ends of the floor, whether it's offense or defense", coach Dwane Casey said. Terry Rozier picked up only two points shooting only an FG% of 11.1% throughout the game.

"I don't know if we're in their heads or not", Drew said. I was looking, 'Who's open?

Calderon blitzed the Raptors in pick-and-roll and pick-and-pop action with James and Love in the first half, piling up 14 points, including two three-pointers, and three assists in 15 minutes.

According to the Boston Herald's Mark Murphy, the National Basketball Association will not fine Celtics' forward Marcus Morris for his referee butt slap, in the team's recent matchup with the Toronto Raptors. "It's incredible to me (how many viable candidates there are whereas in many years somebody has made a definitive case for the award by now)".

"We don't know what we can become", James said. The 33-year-old is averaging 30.4 points, 9.4 rebounds and 10.4 assists on 53 per cent shooting over that stretch.

Marcus Morris led the Celtics with 21 points, and Greg Monroe had 17 and eight rebounds. G Shane Larkin (illness) did not travel to Toronto. Boston lost its second consecutive game after winning six straight. Boston finished with 17 turnovers, three shy of its season-worst.

"The only reason we were down at halftime was the turnovers, even though we couldn't score".

All three teams have four regular-season games remaining. So, theoretically, the Celtics could still overtake the Raptors.

Boston's starters combined for 35 points, 16 of them from Horford.

But Fred VanVleet scored his eighth straight point, including his second straight 3-pointer, for an 81-66 Raptors lead.

Boston hosts the Chicago Bulls on Friday, the same day Toronto hosts the Indiana Pacers.

The Sixers are 1 1/2 games ahead of IN for the final home-court spot. Toronto has won eight straight home games against the Pacers.
