The Toronto Raptors have been one of the Eastern Conference’s best road teams, and they’ve shown some fight in the first two games of their longest trip of the season.
That often hasn’t been the case when they’ve had to travel to Salt Lake City.
The Atlantic Division leaders seek their sixth win in eight games while beating the Jazz for the only the second time in eight visits Monday night.
Following a 100-90 win in Denver on Friday in the opener of a season-high five-game swing, the Raptors (25-22) trailed by as many as 19 in the second half at Portland on Saturday before going on a 16-2 run in the fourth quarter.
Raptors:Kyle Lowry (G), DeMar DeRozan (G), Terrence Ross (F), Amir Johnson (F), Jonas Valanciunas (C)
Raptors: Landry Fields – Right wrist surgery (out)
Jazz: Jeremy Evans – Bruised tailbone & bruised right elbow (doubtful), Derrick Favors – Right hip inflammation (game time decision)
By The Numbers: Raptors @ Jazz
