Losers of three straight, the Toronto Raptors look to get back on track when they visit the Philadelphia 76ers Thursday night.

It's a quick turnaround for Toronto, which is on the second end of a back-to-back after a 16-point loss to the Boston Celtics on Wednesday. "It's going to be up and down. That's just the way it goes," said Fred VanVleet after finishing with 16 points and six assists against the Celtics.

Rookie Scottie Barnes led the way with 21 points to go along with seven rebounds and four assists in Wednesday's loss, while Pascal Siakam scored eight points (on 3-for-7 shooting) in his second game back from injury. Siakam is not slated to suit up against Philadelphia as it is the second end of a back-to-back.

With Wednesday's loss now behind them, the Raptors can refocus on an opportunity to bounce back against a depleted 76ers team. After winning six in a row to move to 8-2 on the season, Philly has dropped its last two games, most recently falling to the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.

In the loss to the Bucks, the Sixers were limited to an eight-man rotation and were without Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris and Matisse Thybulle (health and safety protocols) as well as Seth Curry (foot contusion), while All-Star Ben Simmons remains out for personal reasons.

Second-year guard Tyrese Maxey is among the players who have stepped up for the shorthanded Sixers as well as free-agent acquisition Georges Niang, who is averaging 12.9 points while shooting 41.3 percent from deep this season. With no Embiid, all eyes will be on the Raptors' efforts to make life difficult for Andre Drummond, who dominated Toronto in an Embiid-less preseason game.

Without Siakam, can the Raptors frontcourt hold its own against Drummond to get the win?
