The Raptors (15-26) are led by DeMar DeRozan's 17.3 points per game, while Andrea Bargnani is averaging 16.0 PPG. Kyle Lowry is scoring 14.2 PPG to go with 5.9 assists per game, Alan Anderson is notching 12.3 PPG, Jose Calderon is registering 11.0 PPG and 7.6 APG, Ed Davis is averaging 9.4 PPG and 6.6 rebounds per game and Amir Johnson is tallying 9.0 PPG and 6.4 RPG.

Orlando (14-27) is receiving 17.0 PPG from Arron Afflalo, 15.4 PPG and 7.4 RPG from Glen Davis, 15.3 PPG and 7.2 APG from Jameer Nelson, 14.9 PPG from J.J. Redick and 11.6 PPG and 11.0 RPG from Nikola Vucevic.

"First of all, you have to take ownership. And to take ownership you have to play harder," Redick said after Tuesday's 105-90 loss to the Detroit Pistons. "We have to hold each other accountable to that. We’ll discuss it more. As a group we just need to play harder, and that’s mainly on the defensive end. We’ve harped on it for a few weeks and we keep having issues on that end. It’s not the schemes; it’s doing everything harder and trusting one another." 

Thursday's game starts at 7:00 pm on FS Florida.
