Only three teams in the NBA are playing better than .700 and two of those teams will battle tonight north of the border.

Both teams also will be without key rotation players tonight. Toronto will not field Delon Wright or rookie O.G. Anunoby while the Rockets will not see Ryan Anderson hit the court tonight, though he is expected to make a return very soon. Nene should make his return tonight given that this game is not part of a back-to-back.

A Rockets win will extend the franchise’s second-longest winning streak to 18 while a Toronto win tonight will make it seven straight and give the Raptors the series sweep. Toronto beat Houston on their own floor in early November.
