The Line: Brooklyn Nets +2.5 -- Over/Under:
The Toronto Raptors and Brooklyn Nets meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Barclays Center.
The Toronto Raptors look for another win to build on their 15-game winning streak. The Toronto Raptors are averaging 113.4 points on 46.2 percent shooting and allowing 106.7 points on 43 percent shooting. Pascal Siakam is averaging 23.7 points and 7.5 rebounds while Kyle Lowry is averaging 19.8 points and 7.5 assists. Fred VanVleet is the third double-digit scorer and Serge Ibaka is grabbing eight rebounds. The Toronto Raptors are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 79.5 percent from the free throw line. The Toronto Raptors are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.3 rebounds per game. The Toronto Raptors haven’t lost a road game since January 2.
The Brooklyn Nets look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 110.7 points on 44.5 percent shooting and allowing 111.4 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Kyrie Irving is averaging 27.4 points and 6.4 assists while Spencer Dinwiddie is averaging 21 points and 3.4 rebounds. Caris LeVert is the third double-digit scorer and Joe Harris is grabbing 4.3 rebounds. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 74.1 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 34.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 48.2 rebounds per game. The Brooklyn Nets have won four straight home games.
The Raptors are 37-14 ATS in their last 51 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win. The Nets are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The over is 8-2 in Raptors last 10 road games. The under is 4-1 in Nets last 5 overall. The Raptors are 7-2 ATS in the last 9 meetings in Brooklyn.
The Toronto Raptors are finding ways to win games, but those injuries continue to pile up, and there's a chance they could be without Ibaka for this contest. Eventually missing key players will take its toll. The Brooklyn Nets continue to play their best basketball without Kyrie, and that includes winning their last five games by an average of 11.4 points while shooting 45.2 percent from the field. The Nets nearly stole a game from the Raptors earlier this month. Give me the free bucket with the home team.
