    NOTES

    • The Toronto Raptors host the Cleveland Cavaliers at Scotiabank Arena on Friday night. The Raptors have an opportunity to secure a season-series victory against the Cavaliers for the first time since 2015-16. Toronto is a combined 4-0 against last year’s NBA Finals participants.

    • Friday’s game will mark the 200th consecutive sellout (including playoffs) at Scotiabank Arena since Nov. 11, 2014 – the longest streak in franchise history. Both the arena single-game benchmarks have been set during this streak – 20,050 Nov. 16, 2016 vs. Golden State (regular season); 20,906 May 5, 2016 vs. Miami (playoffs). The Raptors currently rank third in NBA average attendance, averaging 19,824 through 16 games.

    • Toronto enters Friday’s game with an NBA-best 24-9 (.727) record. The Raptors currently lead Milwaukee by 1.5 games in the Eastern Conference standings. Toronto needs five more wins to match the franchise-record for victories through the fist 41 games, which was set last season (29 wins).

    • Toronto continues a stretch of six consecutive games against Eastern Conference opponents – Dec. 19 vs. Indiana (W 99-96), Dec. 21 vs. Cleveland, Dec. 22 at Philadelphia, Dec. 26 at Miami and Dec. 28 at Orlando. TheRaptors are currently tied for the second-best win percentage within the conference with a 14-5 (.737) record. Milwaukee leads all teams with a 13-4 (.765) record. Toronto is tied with Philadelphia for the best win percentage against the West, 10-4 (.714).

    • Toronto improved to 6–0 on the second night of back-to-backs with a 113-93 victory Dec. 12 at Golden State. The Raptors have won their last eight games on the second night of back-to-backs dating back to last season, which is the longest active streak in the NBA. San Antonio won nine straight games on the second-night of back-tobacks during the 2016-17 season.

    • According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Toronto is second-best in the NBA in field-goal percentage on two-point attempts at 56.5 percent, behind only Milwaukee (57.2%). The Pacers rank third in lowest field-goal percentage allowed on two-point attempts at 48.80 percent; the top two are the Heat (48.6%) and Bucks (48.79%).

    • According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Kawhi Leonard’s 659 points through his first 25 games is the most by any player in franchise history. Overall, it’s the third-most by a player to start a season, trailing only Vince Carter (725) through the first 25 games of the 2000-01 campaign, and DeMar DeRozan (701) in 2016-17.

    • INJURY UPDATE: Kyle Lowry (questionable) has missed the last three games (Dec. 14-19) with a thigh contusion after a hard fall Dec. 12 at Golden State. Serge Ibaka (questionable) did not play Dec. 19 vs. Indiana due to a swollen right knee. Jonas Valanciunas left in the second quarter with a dislocated left thumb Dec. 12 at Golden State. He had surgery following the game and will be in a cast for the next four weeks.

          Really impressive for the NBA. Though I've got mixed feelings about the off-court drama and free agencies driving so much of the narrative. Popularity is good for the league in general (revenue) but seriously, it can be about actually playing basketball sometimes.

                "We're still four-time Eastern Conference champions, so until you take us down from that, teams ain't got much to say," Thompson said. "Boston, Philly, they ain't got much to say. Boston had home court in Game 7 and lost. Philly, you guys almost got swept. Toronto -- we already know that story. So, until someone takes us down, there's not much they can really say."
