The Raptors have struggled in the latter half of January, losing six of their last seven games entering Tuesday. While DeMar DeRozan’s recent injury was a factor, they’ve also had problems shooting the ball. Toronto is shooting 45.2% (down from 46.4% for the season) from the field and just 34.8% (down from 37.5%) from the three-point line.

A lot of the Celtics’ success comes from PG Isaiah Thomas, who’s joining DeRozan in the All-Star Game. Thomas is averaging a league-leading 10 points in the fourth quarter. He’s shooting 47.5% from the field in the final quarter, including 42.3% from downtown.

Toronto is 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five against the Celtics, winning and covering in both meetings so far this season. The Raptors won 101-94 in Boston on December 9, and then 114-106 in Toronto on January 10.
