Raptors Preview

Impact Players

Siakam is a major contributor, responsible for 19.9% of the Raptors total offense, while taking an average of 18.3 shot attempts. Ibaka is a force down low, he averages 2.1 offensive boards a contest and collects 18% of his team's rebounds.

Toronto can win with a less-than-excellent scoring output, sporting a record of 21-18 when they fail to reach their 113.2 scoring average. Boston allows 106.8 per contest. The Raptors are 21-17 when they shoot below their 46% season average from the field. The Celtics allow opponents to shoot 44%.
