DeMar DeRozan is averaging 22 points and 5.2 rebounds while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 19.1 points and 2.4 assists.

The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 36.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.6 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Spurs have lost four of their last six road games.
The Toronto Raptors look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 110.5 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 105.2 points on 42.4 percent shooting. Pascal Siakam is averaging 25.1 points and eight rebounds while Kyle Lowry is averaging 20.8 points and 7.6 assists.

The Spurs are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. The Raptors are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS loss. The over is 4-0 in Spurs last 4 overall. The under is 4-1 in Raptors last 5 home games. The Spurs are 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings. The over is 7-2 in the last 9 meetings in Toronto and 11-5 in the last 16 meetings.
It's tough to pick this game when you have no idea who is going to play for the Raptors, but Gasol and Siakam ar upgraded to questionable, so I guess you have to like their chances to give it a go. The San Antonio Spurs continue to be quite inconsistent and they haven't had much success on the road due to a lack of defense. I'll lay the small chalk with the Raptors at home.
