Will the Raptor's play-in hopes get crushed by the Clippers? Or will Vintage Lowry show up again and show the Clippers what they missed out at the deadline?

Toronto (27-38) will be going for a split of its four-game Western swing after defeating the Los Angeles Lakers 121-114 Sunday night.

While the Clippers have clinched a playoff spot, the Raptors are still hoping to reach the postseason and they intend to have fun in the attempt.

That was Lowry's message to his teammates on Sunday as they avoided a fourth-quarter collapse that had been a problem for them.

"I said at halftime. ...'No matter what happens in the rest of this game, let's have fun,'" Lowry said. "And you know I think that's one thing that we can always rally around each other is having fun.

"This game is a game of joy and fun, and when you're having fun, things like that happen. We just went out there and we literally just have had fun. Everybody was just having fun and that was big."

The Clippers (43-22) have dropped three straight, including a 110-104 home loss Saturday to the Denver Nuggets.

In the Clippers' loss to the Nuggets on Saturday, Leonard returned to the lineup after being out five games with a sore right foot. He had missed nine of the past 10 games.

"I'm feeling good," Leonard said after scoring 16 points with six assists and five rebounds in 30 minutes of action
Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said he liked what he saw.

"I don't know if it was fatigue or what, I just thought he really eased into it," Lue said. "I mean he didn't play at his normal pace of attacking and getting to the basket like he usually does -- that's to be expected. But it's just good to have him back."

The focus for the Clippers is to return to full strength for the playoffs.

Ibaka (lower back tightness) has been out since March 15 but is back on the practice court. Patrick Beverley (fractured hand) could soon return for the first time since April 8.

Need a Clippers loss here, hoping for battle of LA first round. Lowry and Siakam need to go off again. Easy W.

Wouldn't you want a W? LAL @ 5 is only 1 game ahead of Portland @ 7 and Bron is going to miss the next 2 games, including that crucial game against Portland on Friday.

Need Denver to get a lead on Clips. Hoping Clips get 4th and Lakers 5th. Can definitely be a 3-6 matchup aswell, gonna be interesting. I can see the Lakers trying to avoid Clippers in the first round.

Surely the tank crew doesn’t want the Clippers to win? Lets not forget about all the tampering they did.

I think the Clippers are going to pull ahead they've got an easier finish vs Denver:
Clips - Raps, LA w/o Bron, Knicks, Raps, Hornet Rockets and Thunder
Denver - Knicks, Jazz, Brooklyn, Hornets, Minnesota, Pistons and Blazers

Lakers are going to slip. -> Clips, Blazers, Suns, Knicks, Rockets, Pacers and Pelicans

I enjoyed watching Lowry/Siakam beat Lebron down, but I hope the Raptors lose out the rest of the season.

Not like the tampering has paid off yet so it is what it is

So is it team tank vs team fun? Let's have fun tonight.
"Yes because he completely turned around a disastrous 5-12 team and helped them in every facet of the game. If Melo keeps it up, he is legit MVP candidate."

Vegas clearly hasn’t seen our net rating to favour the Clippers by 10.5

Ibaka and OG out, they're brothers on and off the court.
