The Clippers have lost three of their last four games including the last two losing this past Monday in Denver against the Nuggets 116-115 and Wednesday night at home to the two-time defending champion Miami Heat 116-112.
Los Angeles will again be without its starting back-court of point guard Chris Paul - nursing a separated right shoulder - and J. J. Redick - out with a back strain. Both should be in the lineup Sunday when the Clippers host the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Clippers won the first meeting against the Raptors in Toronto last month, 126-118, despite allowing Raptors guard Terrance Ross scorch Los Angeles with a career-high 51 points. The Clippers were led, as usual, by Blake Griffin who knocked down 30 points.
Tonight's second game of a five-game home stand for the Clippers tip's off at 7:30.
