NBA.com Preview | Game Notes

Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers are tied for the most wins in 2014, but the Toronto Raptors aren’t far behind thanks to a strong stretch at home.

The Clippers are well aware of what the Raptors are capable of at Air Canada Centre.

Griffin looks to continue his impressive production, and help the Clippers snap a four-game road losing streak to the Raptors in a matchup of division leaders Saturday night (7 PM ET, TSN, Sportsnet 590 The FAN).

The Toronto Raptors (21-20) needed a huge performance from DeMar DeRozan to rescue them from a huge deficit in their last game.

DeRozan might be poised for another career night against the Philadelphia 76ers (14-28) given what he’s done so far in the season series.

He’ll try to help Toronto win a third straight meeting with the 76ers on Friday night when the Raptors visit Philadelphia (7 PM ET, TSN2, TSN 1050).

Preview | Game Notes

The Dallas Mavericks have one of the best assist-to-turnover ratios in the NBA thanks in large part to the steady play of Jose Calderon.

Calderon was greeted warmly in his first return to Toronto, but the receptions have been different for Vince Carter when he’s gone back north.

Carter has also been efficient with the basketball and Wednesday night’s contest figures to be one of his final games in Toronto as the Mavericks continue a three-game trip.
