SAC Vs TOR Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Kings offer little reslliance to a stupendous Raptors side today.
On a two game winning spree, the Raptors have all but nailed down second spot in the Eastern Conference in their favour as thing stand. At a time when Boston have faltered, the Raptors have picked themselves up to put distance between themselves and the third placed side and with it bring themselves firmly into the reckoning for the conference trophy.
For the side, this has been a season of affirming their stature as a side which is there to stay in the league. After reaching the showpiece final in the previous season, an exodus of star performers raised questions on if the side would be able to emulate the same electric form this season as well, questions they have dismissed with aplomb.
Silencing the side’s naysayers, now as the Raptors embark on their final set of fixtures in the league, the Eastern Conference side will be looking to consolidate its position in the annuls of the points tally. And in Sacramento Kings, they are against a side which shouldn’t be anything more than pushovers, a team which will roll down infront of the incredible brunt of the Raptors.
Although the Kings have clearly overachieved off late with four wins in their last five encounters to punch above their weight and make massive strides in the Western Conference, the Raptors should be too much for them to cope with. Defence will hurt the side with the unit finding it improbable to curb the Raptors from shooting points.
