The Toronto Raptors will continue their road trip in Portland where they’ll take on Dalano Banton and the Portland Trail Blazers at 10 p.m. ET Saturday.

Where to Watch

TSN and the FAN 590 will broadcast for Toronto. Root Sports and Rip City Radio 620 will call the game for Portland.

What to Watch For

  • It’s a big game for the tanking fans with Toronto expected to win Saturday night against a bad Trail Blazers team playing on the second night of a back-to-back. The Raptors aren’t going to win many more games this season and their hopes of breaking into the bottom six may rest on their result Saturday.
