TORONTO: LAST SEASON: 58-24, won NBA Finals.
COACH: Nick Nurse (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kyle Lowry (14.2 ppg, 8.7 apg), G Norman Powell (8.6 ppg), F OG Anunoby (7.0 ppg), F Pascal Siakam (16.9 ppg), C Marc Gasol (15.7 ppg, 8.6 rpg).
KEY LOSSES: F Kawhi Leonard, G Danny Green
KEY ADDITIONS: F Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, F Stanley Johnson, G Matt Thomas
PLAYERS TO WATCH: A runaway winner of the NBA's Most Improved Player Award last season, Siakam doesn't look likely to rest on his laurels. Nurse said he's seen more maturity and calmness in Siakam this fall, something new for a player whose game was previously all about speed and energy. Thomas has never played in the NBA, but the former Iowa State star shot 48.1% (116 for 241) from 3-point range in helping Spain's Valencia Basket capture the 2019 EuroCup title.
OUTLOOK: The defending champions lost their best player when Leonard left for the Clippers, and took another hit when Green signed with the Lakers. While those departures may have dimmed Toronto's hopes of repeating, the Raptors aren't lottery-bound either. Lowry has made five straight All-Star teams, Gasol is a defensive force in the paint, and there's talent on the bench in guard Fred VanVleet and big man Serge Ibaka. Expect the Raptors to earn a top-four seed in a balanced Eastern Conference.

Because of this important information, no power rating or computer score edges are posted for this game.

NEW ORLEANS: LAST SEASON: 33-49, finished tied for 12th in Western Conference.
COACH: Alvin Gentry (fifth season with Pelicans, 145-183; 17th season overall, 480-553).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Lonzo Ball (9.9 ppg), G Jrue Holiday (21.2), F Brandon Ingram (18.3), F Zion Williamson (rookie), C Derrick Favors (11.8).
KEY LOSSES: F Anthony Davis, F Julius Randle, G Elfrid Payton.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Williamson, F Ingram, G Ball, C Favors, G J.J. Redick, G Nickeil Alexander-Walker, C Jaxson Hayes.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Williamson was the No. 1 overall pick in last summer's NBA draft, was a highlight machine at Duke and has looked fearless in his first NBA preseason ' taking the ball to the hoop against the best interior defenders in the league and scoring more than 20 points in multiple games. The 6-foot-6, 285-pound rookie is a social media phenomenon and filling arenas everywhere he goes. But the additions of Ball and Redick will be important to New Orleans as well.
OUTLOOK: Of the Pelicans' four new starters brought in by Griffin, one was picked No. 1 overall this summer and two Ingram and Ball were picked second overall within the previous three years by the Lakers before being packaged with Josh Hart and draft picks in a trade sending Davis to Los Angeles. Combined with savvy veterans like Holiday and Favors, not to mention Redick off the bench, there are high hopes in New Orleans that the Pelicans are trending upward and might even contend for a playoff spot this season. The Pelicans also expect 2019 first-round picks Alexander-Walker and Hayes to contribute this season.
Raptors look for season sweep of Pelicans

The Toronto Raptors and the New Orleans Pelicans opened the season against each other nearly three weeks ago.

The host Raptors prevailed 130-122 in overtime and that set the tone for both teams' seasons so far in the young campaign.

Defending NBA champion Toronto has lost just twice since while New Orleans has won just once going into a rematch in New Orleans on Friday.

Both teams are emphasizing defense going into their final meeting this season.

The Pelicans have been plagued by poor defense, allowing an NBA-worst 124.3 points per game.

The Raptors have been much better, allowing just 108.7, but they did have lapses in a 124-120 home victory Wednesday night against Sacramento, which tied a franchise record by making 20 3-pointers.

"I don't know how many of those were contested," Raptors guard Fred VanVleet said. "Not enough for us -- a lot of breakdowns, falling asleep."

Coach Nick Nurse called Toronto's defense "a work in progress."

"We didn't win like we wanted to," forward Pascal Siakam said, "but we got the win and that's all that matters."

The Raptors will see how many more wins they can get during a challenging five-game road trip that also includes a stop in Los Angeles to play both the Lakers and the Clippers as well as visits to Portland and Dallas.

"It's a good test," VanVleet said. "This is some of the tougher stretches of the NBA year going on a long road trip like this. It's good early in the year to go through these stretches, go on the road, be tired back to back, see what you got and try to keep improving. This is a good stretch to see what we can do."

The Pelicans got their only victory of the season in their last home game, defeating Denver 122-107 on Oct. 31. But then they lost road games against Oklahoma City and Brooklyn.

"We have spurts where we're phenomenal on defense," guard Josh Hart said, "and we have spurts where we're the worst team in the league on defense."

Coach Alvin Gentry said the team will try to simplify some of its defensive concepts.

"It's hard to pinpoint one issue," guard JJ Redick said. "We're pretty poor in a lot of areas."

In the game against the Nets, the Pelicans fell behind by 19 points in the first half, got within a field goal late in the fourth quarter and eventually succumbed after committing 21 turnovers.

"We've got to contain the ball," Gentry said. "We're giving up dribble penetration and dribble penetration is like the absolute worst thing for your defense. We're trying to make some adjustments so we can contain the ball more so that we're not broken down. If you can do that, your defense can be a lot more solid than it is.

"Another thing that's one of the biggest problems for our defense is our turnovers. When you're turning the ball over and teams are running at you with numbers, that makes all of your defensive stats go up."

New Orleans is averaging 16.7 turnovers per game.
