After a dismal start to the season, the Thunder have won five straight games and sit tied for fifth in the Western Conference at 19-15.  A ghost of Christmas past appeared in the Raptors loss last night with Dirk Nowitzki pouring in 18 points, second on the Mavs to JJ Barea's 20. The Raptors will need a stronger effort defensively against the Thunder after letting four Mavs score in double figures. Scoring won't exactly come easy for the Raptors tonight with a much improved OKC defence. The Raptors will need their depth to come into play if they hope to defeat an OKC team that is 13-4 at home this year.  Projected Raptor Starters PG Kyle Lowry SG DeMar DeRozan SF OG Anunoby PF Serge Ibaka C Jonas Valanciunas Projected Thunder Starters PG Russell Westbrook SG Andre Roberson SF Paul George PF Carmelo Anthony C Steven Adams
