The Toronto Raptors were blown out by the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night when they played their third game in four nights. Now, three days later they’ll take on another slumping team when they host the Los Angeles Lakers.

Los Angeles snapped a five-game losing streak with their first game of this five-game road trip, a 123-107 win over Chicago. LeBron James, supposedly on a minutes restriction led the team with 36 points in 33 minutes. The team overcame an atrocious start, down 34-16 after one in the comeback win.

The Lakers playoff chances are miniscule as they trail eighth place Utah by 6.5 games and they are without Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram for the rest of the season.

Toronto is just 2-3 in their last five games and now will be without Serge Ibaka who will serve a three-game suspension. The team was clearly gassed in their loss to Cleveland and will look to reset with this game. Marc Gasol will assume a larger role in the starting lineup with Ibaka out until next Thursday.
