Celtics host Raptors with sights set on 4th straight win

A four-game homestand before the All-Star break gave the Boston Celtics the perfect opportunity to put a month-long funk behind them and push their record back above .500.

Three games in, they've done just that. The Celtics will look to continue their winning ways as they host the depleted Toronto Raptors on Thursday night.

Boston has won three straight for the first time since early January, defeating the Indiana Pacers, Washington Wizards and the Los Angeles Clippers over the past week. The most recent of those victories -- 117-112 against the Kawhi Leonard-less Clippers on Tuesday -- pushed Boston's record to 18-17 after a stretch of 11 losses in 16 games.
