Lakers-Raptors Preview

(AP) -- The Toronto Raptors are close to clinching another division title, though their recent play hasn't been encouraging with the playoffs on the horizon.

Dwane Casey looks for better defense from his club Friday night when it hosts the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Raptors (42-30) clinched a postseason berth Wednesday by virtue of losses by Boston and Charlotte despite their 116-103 home defeat against Chicago, their second loss in six days to the Bulls. They'll clinch the Atlantic for a second straight year with a win or a Celtics loss Friday to the New York Knicks.
