7-1 teams play
(AP) — The two teams that share the best record in the NBA are part of a four-game schedule tonight.
Toronto takes a 7-1 mark and five-game winning streak into its home game against Chicago in a meeting of division leaders. The Raptors are a perfect 5-0 at home this season to help them top the Atlantic Division. Central Division-leading Chicago has built a 6-2 mark and is a perfect 4-0 on the road.
Memphis sits atop the Southwest Division with its 7-1 mark heading into a home game against Sacramento. The Grizzlies take a 17-game home court winning streak into tonight’s showdown. The Kings will be trying to shake off the effects of blowing a 24-point lead in a loss at Dallas Tuesday.
Golden State is protecting a slim half-game lead over Sacramento at the top of the Pacific Division. The Warriors host Brooklyn.
Winless Philadelphia visits Dallas.
