DeMar DeRozan- After missing a heavy portion of the season with a leg injury, DeMar DeRozan is back and has played well. DeRozan is averaging 18.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists.

Louis Williams- One way to describe Louis Williams: scorer. He is a tough cover as he is one of the league’s best sixth man, as he can shoot from the outside or take his man off the dribble. He is averaging 15.2 points this season.

This will be a difficult contest for the Spurs as the Raptors are one of the league’s best teams and they are terrific at home. The Spurs will lose in a close game as Lowry and DeRozan will make big plays towards the end.
