Toronto look to extend winning streak

December 21, 2012 18:16:31 UK

The 8-19 Toronto Raptors go for their fifth consecutive victory on Friday when the Orlando Magic arrives at the Air Canada Centre.

After a stunningly poor start to the year, the Raptors have taken advantage of a relatively soft part of their schedule to pick up momentum and appear to have caught a break with the injury to Glen Davis of the Magic.

Davis' MRI on his shoulder showed no significant structural damage, but the former LSU star is likely to be out for at least a couple of weeks.

The Eastern Conference leaders, the New York Knicks, will look to increase their lead over the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics in the Atlantic Division when they play the Chicago Bulls at Madison Square Garden on Friday evening.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are then in town on Sunday before the Knicks head to LA to face the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staple Center on Christmas Day.

The Nets are idle until they host the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday, but Boston is in action when the Milwaukee Brewers visit the TG Garden.

Paul Pierce had 40 points to lead the Celtics on Wednesday in the win over the Cleveland Cavaliers that snapped a three-game losing streak.

In the Southeast Division the Miami Heat increased their lead over the Atlanta Hawks to two games with a win over the Mavericks in Dallas.

LeBron James led all scorers with a game-high 24 points on 9-of-13 shooting as Miami hit almost 54% from the floor in the 110-95 victory.

The Knicks can be backed at 1001.00 to win this season's NBA Championship.
