With their statement-making win in the Atlantic Division, the Toronto Raptors have clinched a second straight winning month for the first time in four years.

Though they could be without leading scorer DeMar DeRozan, the first-place Raptors appear to have a good opportunity to keep it going against the NBA’s worst road team.

Toronto goes for its fourth win in five games Wednesday night as it tries to deal the Orlando Magic a 10th straight loss away from home (7 PM ET, TSN2, TSN 1050).
