SAC vs TOR Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Toronto Raptors will be looking for their third consecutive win when they host Sacramento Kings in an NBA match at Scotiabank Arena, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on Wednesday morning (IST).
Danny Green dropped his season-best eight three-pointers to lead Toronto Raptors to a 119-90 win over Memphis Grizzlies. The 31-year-old also ended the match with a game-high 24 points.
Kawhi Leonard was given a rest for the second game running but there was no dearth of quality in Raptors’ rank.
Serge Ibaka opened the scoring for the hosts with his simple layup shot. Both the teams scored in turns and Memphis took the lead in the first quarter when Jevon Carter buried a three-pointer. Raptors went on a 9-0 run soon after and never trailed in the match.
It was Raptors ninth consecutive win in home games and they will be wrapping up their three-game home run with hosting of Sacramento Kings in their next match.
Sacramento Kings meanwhile are in a good form at the moment. They have won five times in the last seven games.
For the second time in the last seven games, Sacramento got the better of Detroit Pistons. Kings won the game 101-103 with Buddy Hield leading the charge with his 35 points display.
Regular Season Record-
Toronto Raptors: W-35, L-13
Sacramento Kings: W-24, L-22
Players to watch out for:
Kawhi Leonard – If Toronto Raptors win the Eastern Conference, this will be the first time in their franchise history. The player who has made them champions-material is none other than Kawhi Leonard. The 2014 NBA finals was brought in from former San Antonio Spurs in a two-way trade which sent DeMar DeRozan the other way. And there’s no doubt that he has been an upgrade to DeRozan, as he is racking up NBA MVP caliber numbers this season. He is averaging 27.6 points per game.
Kyle Lowry – The 32-year-old warhorse is an indispensable part of the squad, as he ticks almost all the boxes. He is consistent with his scoring as he is averaging 13.9 points per game. But his movement without the ball is crucial as well which makes spaces for his teammates.
Buddy Hield –The only player who is averaging in the 20s for Sacramento Kings this season. Buddy Hield is in very good form at the moment, as he has scored points at 23.4 per game in the last 10 games. While his season is 20.5 points per game.
De’Aaron Fox – Another young stalwart who is making a name for himself in Sacramento is De’Aaron Fox. The 21-year-old is scoring the second-best points per game this season for Sacramento Kings.
SAC vs TOR Dream11 TEAM NEWS:
Injured – OG Anunoby (personal reasons) and Jonas Valanciunas (finger injury) both have been ruled out with their respective reasons.
Questionable – None.
Suspended – None.
Please Note: Toronto Head coach rested superstar Kawhi Leonard for the second straight games for reasons he termed as “Load Management”. Considering his injury problems in the past, it looks a good decision that Leonard is being used cautiously by Toronto.

Questionable – None at the moment.
Suspended – None.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Toronto Raptors secured their ninth straight home victory against Memphis Grizzlies, while the last two have come in the absence of Kawhi Leonard. That shows the depth in the squad with players rising up and counting so far to make this season best ever in Toronto’s history.
But Sacramento Kings have received praise from all quarters for the tenacity they show on the court. Also, their squad is quite young which will only become better as players stack up precious minutes on the court.
But the Raptors are ripe both in the talent department and experience level.
A home win is our call.
