The Los Angeles Lakers take on the Toronto Raptors in the second game of the Orlando bubble.

The Los Angeles Lakers will be the “road team” against the Toronto Raptors after “hosting” the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday in an opening night victory that helped welcome back the NBA.

This is going to be the Raptors’ first game of the Orlando bubble as the team was not part of the league’s opening night doubleheader on Thursday and did not play on Friday. Both the Lakers and Raptors have Sunday off before jumping back into action on Monday.

After a great win over the Clippers, the Raptors present the perfect second opponent for the Lakers to gauge themselves against in the bubble. Win or lose, this game is going to be an important one for the team as it will continue to aid the team in game-planning for the NBA Playoffs.
