  • Toronto Raptors @ Houston Rockets - Friday Jan. 25 at 8pm Eastern, 5pm Pacifc

    Starting Lineups

    Toronto

    Kyle Lowry
    Danny Green
    Kawhi Leonard
    Pascal Siakam
    Serge Ibaka


    Houston

    James Harden
    Austin Rivers
    Eric Gordon
    PJ Tucker
    Kenneth Faried (?)

    Toronto is coming off a tough loss to Indiana in which Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka both performed well. Toronto is currently on a three game road trip before returning home to face the Bucks, a very big matchup.

    James Harden is coming off a career high 61 in New York. He played 40 minutes. Harden is currently on one of the best offensive runs in NBA history, averaging 52.2 points per game over the last 5. Harden also was unassisted to make 261 points without an assist on his 76 makes from the field over his last five games.

    After resting the previous 4 games for "load management" Kawhi Leonard hopes to be back in the lineup Friday night. As well, OG Anunoby will return to the lineup on Friday after missing the previous 5 games. He had been playing well before his absence with two double digit performances in his last three, shooting 83% from the field in both.

    Kyle Lowry's offense has picked up recently and he'll look to keep his shot-making up against his former team.

    Go Raps.

            Harden has been off the charts and it doesn't look like there's really any way he gets less than 40 ..... but the TEAM is just 5-5 in their last 10 games. So why does it seem like this would be a very tough game to get? Hopefully Kawhi and OG don't show the rust.

              First and foremost get the win. But it would be sweet to see Kawhi and Kawhi jr do what they can to stop his streak of 30 pt games

                So looking forward to this game. We have one of the best perimeter defenders in the league and his partner that have done a wicked job in the past shutting down Harden in the playoffs.

                Yet Harden is on some type of god-like streak that nobody has ever seen before since Wilt Chamberlain.

                Will be quite the clash. If we can get James into a sub 30 score that would be fucking awesome.

                A win should be easy though. We have the talent up and down the roster to beat that team quite easily even if we are on the road.

                      I'm sorry, Maury. The results are already in and... you ARE the father of the next 10+ game threads!

                      It's a good thing.

                        Lol Harden probably drops 40, shooting 5 for 20 from deep, 20/20 FT. Overrated volume shooter 🙄
