BOSTON -- The Toronto Raptors, saddled with their first two-game losing streak of the season, visit TD Garden Friday night for the second battle of the season between the teams picked to finish atop the Eastern Conference.

The Raptors (12-3) lost both games at home after a 12-1 start - falling 126-110 to the New Orleans Pelicans before losing on a buzzer-beater to the Detroit Pistons and former Toronto coach Dwane Casey Wednesday night.

Casey, of course, was fired by the Raptors after a playoff disaster against the Cleveland Cavaliers despite winning NBA coach of the year honors. He returned to Toronto with the Pistons and his team earned him a measure of revenge when Reggie Bullock hit a floater at the buzzer.
