TOR vs OKC Dream11: Toronto Raptors play host to Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA regular season matchup at Scotiabank Arena, on Monday morning. Both the teams will find no dearth of confidence after winning their last games.
Raptors, in particular, wasted no time in serving the revenge plate to their great and fellow conference rivals Boston Celtics, beating them 93-113 in their own backyard. It was a response reminiscing of a champion following Raptors’ 102-118 defeat on Christmas Day. Raptors maintained their good run with their seventh win in the last 10 games, and 9th on the road this season.
Thunder are also fresh off a win in the last game as they beat Charlotte Hornets 102-104 in overtime at Spectrum Center. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander dropped a game-high 27 points, while Dennis Schroder, who was fined $25,000 for grabbing referee’s wrist, scored 24 points.
