The Raptors look to bounce back from one of their worst offensive displays of the season when they try to hand the Detroit Pistons a sixth straight loss Wednesday night.

Toronto (16-17) moved atop the lowly Atlantic Division during a 9-2 stretch in which it averaged 101.1 points on 44.9 percent shooting, including 38.7 from beyond the arc.

The Raptors' season-best five-game winning streak ended with Sunday's 102-97 loss at Miami, and they followed that by putting up a season-low point total in an 86-79 defeat at Indiana two days later.

Avoiding a third straight defeat will require some improvement from the field after Toronto shot 37.0 percent overall and went 5 of 19 from long range against the Pacers.

"Shooters' legs, sea legs, whatever you want to call it, it was there," coach Dwane Casey said. "We can have all the excuses, but again, in a game like this, you've got to man up and bring it."

The upcoming stretch offers the Raptors a chance to get untracked. Their next four are against Detroit (14-21), Brooklyn, Milwaukee and Boston - all teams with losing records.

WTF is up with Kat's nasally voice? Was she that nasally before?? Never noticed.

Detroit lost 7 of 8 to all kinds of bad teams. Are they imploding?
Nevertheless, need to take them seriously

This one won't be easy imo. They probably see this as a winable game and they're desperate.

Yeah, back to back against a very physical team. JV better be prepared, if he looks like he did last night we're in trouble.
