NEW ORLEANS: LAST SEASON: 48-34, lost in Western Conference semifinals.
COACH: Alvin Gentry (fourth season, 16th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Elfrid Payton (12.7 ppg, Orlando/Phoenix), G Jrue Holiday (19 ppg), F E'Twaun Moore (12.5 ppg), F Anthony Davis, (28.1 ppg), C Julius Randle (16.1 ppg, Lakers).
KEY LOSSES: C-F DeMarcus Cousins, G Rajon Rondo
KEY ADDITIONS: Randle, Payton
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Davis and Holiday played the best basketball of their careers last season and provide the Pelicans hope of returning to the playoffs. Davis has continued working on building his physique and strength with the expectation that he might have to play more at center now the Cousins is out of the picture. Davis also says his goal is to prove he is the most dominant player in the NBA. Holiday thrived last season when he was able to play more at shooting guard, allowing him to focus more on scoring and crunch-time defending than setting up the offense. The acquisition of Payton should allow Holiday to resume that role.
OUTLOOK: While it's hard to replace Cousins and Rondo, general manager Dell Demps is hoping Randle and Payton wind up being better fits because of their relative youth, defensive play and ability to thrive in an up-tempo offense. Gentry has said he wants the Pelicans to play even faster than their NBA-leading pace last season. It just might work. New Orleans' top three front court players 'Davis, Randle and Nikola Mirotic' all have shown they can be effective playing that way.
TORONTO: LAST SEASON: 59-23, lost in Eastern Conference semifinals.
COACH: Nick Nurse (first season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kyle Lowry (16.2 ppg, career-high, 5.6 rpg), G Danny Green (8.6 ppg, San Antonio), F Kawhi Leonard (16.2 ppg in nine games, San Antonio), F Serge Ibaka (112.6 ppg), C Jonas Valanciunas (12.7 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G DeMar DeRozan, F Jakob Poeltl
KEY ADDITIONS: Leonard, Green, C Greg Monroe
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Leonard will be under intense scrutiny in his first season with Toronto, and his last before free agency. A former Defensive Player of the Year and NBA Finals MVP, Leonard was limited to nine games last season because of a thigh injury, and his relationship with the Spurs soured during his lengthy rehab. The Raptors will hope Leonard likes his time north of the border enough to sign a long-term deal with Toronto next summer.
OUTLOOK: A lot has changed since Toronto set a franchise record with 59 wins last season. The Raptors fired
COACH of the Year Dwane Casey and replaced him with Nurse, a first-time NBA head
COACH. Toronto also traded franchise icon DeMar DeRozan and C Jakob Poeltl to acquire Leonard and Green from the Spurs. The Raptors need to brush aside the issue of Leonard's future and use the regular season to get comfortable together so they can focus on postseason success.
Pelicans-Raptors Preview

TORONTO -- The New Orleans Pelicans have responded to a six-game losing streak with two consecutive home wins and Monday night they will learn just how far they have come back when they visit the surging Toronto Raptors.

While the Pelicans (6-6) were defeating the Phoenix Suns 119-99 Saturday, the Raptors (12-1) won their sixth in a row, 128-112 over the New York Knicks and are undefeated in seven home games this season.

The Pelicans improved to 5-1 at home after the win over the Suns but are 1-5 on the road. After playing Monday in Toronto, they will visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. It made the win against Phoenix important for the team's frame of mind.

"It was real big for us," said Pelicans forward Anthony Davis, who had 26 points, 13 rebounds and six assists Saturday. "You know you can't get too far down in the West or it's going to be trouble trying to get back up in the standings, so, for us to come back home and take care of home court, it was big time for us. It gives us a little confidence going into two tough games. You know (the Raptors) are the No. 1 team in the East right so it's going to be another big road trip for us. We've got to come out with both of them."

The Raptors have swept the season series against the Pelicans over the past three seasons and have won 12 of the past 14 meetings overall against them.

Elfrid Payton (sprained right ankle) and Nikola Mirotic (sprained right ankle) are listed by the Pelicans as questionable for Monday.

The Raptors had a sluggish start Saturday after going undefeated on a four-game Western swing, but they were able to handle the Knicks led by Pascal Siakam's career-best 23 points, 14 in the third quarter.

"I think we calmed down a little bit," Siakam said. "We missed a couple shots early, a couple turnovers here and there and we just had to settle into the game. We don't get all rattled. We just calm down and continue to play our game and it's been working for us."

The decisiveness of the win enabled Raptors coach Nick Nurse to rest his starting five -- Kawhi Leonard, Kyle Lowry, Siakam, Serge Ibaka and Danny Green -- for the entire fourth quarter.

"I was kind of expecting a little bit of a West Coast grog, to be honest with you.," Nurse said. "It is common. We see it a lot when we come back in the first game. I just wasn't going to make a big deal about it. It takes a little while to get your focus and your legs back underneath you. But I thought we were playing hard, and that is the main thing. We were playing a little careless on offense, we weren't rebounding the ball."

With the bench getting plenty of action, the Raptors had seven double-digit scorers Saturday: Siakam (23), Jonas Valanciunas (19), OG Anunoby (16), Leonard (12), Ibaka (12), Delon Wright (12) and Lowry (10).??

The Pelicans have been pleased with their defense over the past two games, holding their opponents under 100 points in each of their past two games.

They were able to hold the Suns prolific guard Devin Booker to 12 points. Booker entered the game averaging 26.5 points per game.

"I thought we played well, moved the basketball, and did a lot of good things," Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said. "Jrue (Holliday) was sensational on Booker and you are not going to guard him any better than that. If you think about the fact that he was 4-for-11 and one of them was the 50-foot 3-point shot and the other ones he had problems getting them off on Jrue. I thought Jrue did as good of a job as you are ever going to do guarding that kid. I thought we did a good job getting the ball inside to Julius (Randle) and AD (Anthony Davis)."

In two games against Toronto last season, Davis averaged 18.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 2.5 steals and Holiday averaged 26 points, 4.5 rebounds and eight assists. In two games against New Orleans last season, Lowry averaged 20 points, 8.5 rebounds and eight assists and Valanciunas averaged 12 points and 9.5 rebounds.
