The last time these two teams met on the basketball court, the game was a thriller.

Toronto narrowly escaped Los Angeles with a 113-104 win to hand the Lakers their only loss in the month of November.

Now the two teams meet again in a seeding match in Florida to see if Los Angeles (50-14) can continue finishing off its placement as the No. 1 seed in the west and if Toronto (46-18) can keep its advantage over Boston for the second spot in the east.

There are few teams in the league that can match the one-two punch provided by LeBron James and Anthony Davis. James continues to be one of the top players in the league, with an average of 25.6 points per game, 7.9 rebounds and a league-leading 10.5 assists. Davis, on the other hand, has enjoyed playing alongside James as he has averaged 26.8 points and 9.4 rebounds per game this season.

The Raptors have continued from last season to be one of the top teams in the NBA. They are 12th in the league in points at 113.0 in large part to the production of power forward Pascal Siakam, who has averaged 23.6 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. Of course, Kyle Lowry remains one of the leaders on the reigning NBA Finals Champions as he has averaged 19.7 points and 7.7 assists per game.
