Who’s Playing

Boston @ Toronto

Current Records: Boston 10-10; Toronto 9-11

What to Know

The Toronto Raptors will be returning home after a six-game road trip. Toronto and the Boston Celtics will face off in an Atlantic Division battle at 6 p.m. ET Sunday at Scotiabank Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’

The contest between the Raptors and the Indiana Pacers this past Friday was not particularly close, with Toronto falling 114-97. Toronto’s defeat came about despite a quality game from power forward Scottie Barnes, who had 17 points along with seven rebounds.

Meanwhile, Boston came up short against the San Antonio Spurs this past Friday, falling 96-88. Point guard Dennis Schroder had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only eight points on 3-for-14 shooting in his 37 minutes on the court.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Toronto is expected to win a tight contest. But bettors beware: they are only 1-4 against the spread when favored.

Toronto ended up a good deal behind the Celtics when they played in the teams’ previous meeting earlier this month, losing 104-88. Maybe the Raptors will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
