(SportsNetwork.com) - The Toronto Raptors have won three straight and will look for more Wednesday night when they host the Sacramento Kings at Air Canada Centre. The Raptors have won four of the last five, but are only 1-2 in their last three at home. They hit the road for two straight following Wednesdays contest. On Tuesday, Toronto had a relatively easy time with the Indiana Pacers, winning, 104-91, at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points and Kyle Lowry had a solid performance in the Raptors victory. Lowry, a starting guard for the Eastern Conference All-Star team, finished with 19 points, eight assists and seven rebounds for Toronto. It takes all eyes off of me, Lowry said of what DeRozan brings to the team. It puts eyes on him too and gives me the opportunity to get some open shots. The Raptors bench was sensational and it had to be. Torontos other starters beside DeRozan and Lowry combined for 19 points. The Raptors second unit tallied 42 points. Lou Williams (14), Patrick Patterson (13) and Terrence Ross (11) led the way for the Raptors reserves. The Kings should be on game three of a five-game road trip, but Mother Nature reared her ugly head. After losing to the Golden State Warriors on Friday to begin this trek, the Kings were scheduled to visit Madison Square Garden on Monday to take on the New York Knicks. With the impending blizzard forecast, the league canceled the game and the two teams will make it up March 3. The Kings were on the wrong side of history in their loss to the Warriors. Klay Thompson turned a Kings third-quarter lead into a Golden State Warriors rout all by himself. The sharp-shooting guard set an NBA record for points in a quarter on Friday night, netting 37 of Golden States 41 in the third en route to a 126-101 Warriors blowout win over the Kings. They just kept wanting to see the show. Thats what they kept telling me, Thompson said of his teammates. Thompson, who finished with 52 points after departing at the 9:28 mark of the fourth, made all 13 of his shots in the third, with nine of them coming from beyond the arc. I was taking a lot of bad shots out there, but I was taking them until I missed, Thompson said. He broke George Gervin and Carmelo Anthonys previous mark of 33 points for a quarter. It was crazy. I dont even know what happened, Thompson said. DeMarcus Cousins tallied 28 points and 11 boards to lead the Kings, who have dropped six straight games and three in a row as the visitor. He was getting it off so quick we couldnt get any help to him, Sacramento coach Tyrone Corbin said of Thompson. The Raptors defeated the Kings by eight in Sacramento on Dec. 2 and have won two straight in this series. The Kings had won the previous four, but are just 2-8 in their previous 10 north of the border. Trebuie să fii logat sau înregistrat pentru a vedea acest link. .

Im very excited about the playoffs, particularly in the Western Conference with amazing match-ups, as well as the wonderful local story in the Toronto Raptors. It should be a blast. Here are my predictions, but based upon my lousy prognostications during the NCAA Tournament, you might be better off going the other way on some of mine - particularly with the Raptors, who I hope and pray are able to win an incredibly difficult match-up.
