Lakers vs Raptors

LAKERS vs. RAPTORS

The Raptors are playing their first "competitive" game in months & having to take on the Lakers in the first game will be a tall task. The Lakers took on the Clippers in their first game back without Lou Williams & Montrezl Harrell, and they survived with a 2 point win. In this matchup I expect Anthony Davis to get the looks he wants & for Lebron to get things going offensively since last game it was a brick fest for him but his defense was superb. I don't expect Siakam to be able to do much defensively. Nick Nurse tried out some big lineups in the scrimmage games, putting Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol, & Serge Ibaka on the court at the same time. It will be interesting to see if Nick Nurse uses this lineup at some point in the game. There are some unknowns in this matchup, but I'm going to back the Raptors in this contest.
