Pascal Siakam and the Toronto Raptors (37-30) will take on LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers (29-38) in part of the NBA Monday slate.

It doesn’t get much more embarrassing for a team than the Lakers’ 140-111 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Sunday. LeBron James stayed on the floor despite the blowout to keep racking up his stats despite playing in the first part of a back-to-back.

As long as the Lakers’ season continues to play out, the lower the bottom reaches. Will they finally turn things around? That remains the key question.

The Raptors are currently vying to maximize their standing in the Eastern Conference. Fred VanVleet being sidelined at times has been challenging to overcome. There’s a chance he doesn’t play in this one.
