In a game from the National Basketball Association, we will see Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers.
The Toronto Raptors conceded a second straight loss and they will certainly be looking to avoid a new one. The offense was missing in the last game against the Bucks and only Serge Ibaka was able to convert. If the offense is flowing, I have no doubt that the Raptors will win this one as they are averaging over 115 points per game. They are also allowing just 107.8 points per game.
The Clippers are coming off a battle with the Phoenix Suns and the upcoming game will conclude their back-to-back set. The Los Angeles team is averaging 115.6 points per game but they are struggling on the defensive end, allowing 116.8 points. They are very effective at shooting the basketball, converting 47% of their shots.
Toronto is inconsistent at the moment, especially on the road. The Raptors are still loaded with talent and they can win on any court at any given night. Lowry is in a slump at the moment and I expect him to break through in this one because he can’t be held scoreless for much longer. Toronto should be able to cover the spread even when on the road in a hostile environment.
