The line for the game is Toronto by 14 points.

Paskal Siakam emerged as a significant scoring threat in November, averaging 16.9 points on 65.8 percent shooting during the month. “His confidence is very high,” coach Nick Nurse told the media of Siakam. “It just keeps inching along.” Kyle Lowry shook off a rough shooting night (4-for-14) to produce 12 assists against the Warriors and he continues to lead the league in that category with 10.3 per game.

Friday saw the team debut of guard Alec Burks, who was acquired in Wednesday’s deal that sent veteran Kyle Korver to Utah, and he finished with 15 points, six assists and four rebounds off the bench. Cleveland is still operating without Sam Dekker (ankle) George Hill (shoulder) and Davis Nwaba (knee). Guard Jordan Clarkson is averaging 20.5 points over his last two games and has a total of one turnover in 54 minutes during that stretch.

Toronto is averaging 120.3 points during its seven-game winning streak.
