Raptors visit Spurs in search of sixth straight

The San Antonio Spurs, winners of two straight, look to cool off a red-hot Toronto Raptors side when they meet at the AT & T Center on Wednesday.

Fresh from Sunday's 129-91 victory over the Dallas Mavericks, in a game where the Spurs hit 20 from beyond the arc, San Antonio now leads the Southwest Division by a game over the Memphis Grizzlies. The Raptors have a long way to go before they reach any kind of relevance, but their five-game winning streak has moved the Atlantic Division cellar dwellers to 9-19.

Winners of four in a row before being blown out by the Houston Rockets this past Saturday, the Grizzlies play two games at home before heading to Indiana on New Year's Eve. First up are the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday and the Denver Nuggets will then come into town over the weekend.

Denver lost to the Los Angeles Clippers on Christmas Day and are straight back into action on Wednesday when they host the Los Angeles Lakers at the Pepsi Center. It?s then on to Dallas for the Nuggets on Friday before they play the Grizzlies at the FedEx Forum in their fourth game in five days. The Clippers, now the leaders in the Western Conference over the Oklahoma City Thunder, get the day off after their 112-100 victory and will look for the 15th consecutive win when the Boston Celtics visit the Staples Center on Thursday. Boston also picked up the victory on Christmas Day easily defeating the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclays Center.

The Spurs can be backed at 10/11 in the point spread (-13), while the Raptors (+13) are priced at 10/11.
