Clippers-Raptors open thread

It's a Sunday afternoon game, but there's no NFL in Los Angeles or Toronto, so this is the only game that matters. The Clippers are trying to win their sixth straight before leaving on a four game trip.

The Clippers really shouldn't have any problems with the Raptors provided they don't take this game lightly. As with convincing wins over Sacramento and Dallas recently, the Clippers should strive to put this game away early.
