Los Angeles Lakers vs Toronto Raptors NBA Basketball Odds and Free Sports Picks

The Los Angeles Lakers will be able to measure how much they have turned things around when they play the Toronto Raptors on Sunday at the Air Canada Centre.

After losing nine games in a row, the Lakers have won eight of their past 10 games, including four in a row following their 108-103 victory over the Bulls at Chicago on Friday that opened a five-game road trip.

The Raptors have won their past five meetings against the Lakers since 2015 but should not be in a mood to take them lightly after losing the opener of a three-game homestand 97-93 to the Utah Jazz on Friday.

It was only the fourth home loss of the season for the Raptors, who have won 17 at the ACC and have the second-best home record in the NBA.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said the team was "down" during practice Saturday. The Jazz scored 12 of the final 14 points of the game and held the Raptors to 38.9 percent shooting. The Raptors led by six points with 2:24 to play.

The Raptors (32-15) will try to complete a season-series sweep against the Lakers (19-29) Sunday after they won the first meeting of the season 101-92 on Oct. 27 at the Staples Center.

The Raptors had a similar domination against the Jazz in recent seasons, but lost Friday on Ricky Rubio's 3-pointer in the final seconds and DeMar DeRozan then missed his shot.

Valanciunas has a team-best 14 double-doubles this season, and on Friday hit two 3-point shots in a game for the first time in his career.

Casey talked to his team Saturday about being ready from the start against the Lakers. "They're going to come out guns ablazing," he said. "They're a running team."

The Lakers also have found an identity defensively during their surge.

Rookie guard Lonzo Ball remains out with a sore left knee for the Lakers, who are 7-15 on the road this season. They have not defeated the Raptors since Nov. 30, 2014.
