  • Toronto tied it up at 2-2 with a solid 101-96 victory in Game 4 with Kawhi Leonard hitting 5 3-pointers and scoring 39 points. The Klaw has been unstoppable, averaging 38 ppg in the series ( 61.8% FG) with 4 straight 30-point outings.
  • The 76ers win in Toronto in Game 2 halted a 14-game road losing streak in the series, but their biggest concern tonight is the health of Embiid (illness & sore left knee).
  • The Raptors rank 1st in defensively this postseason and Unders are always on the cards.
  • Like the Raptors to pull this one out in a low scoring affair.
  • Under is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
  • Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Toronto.

OUR PICK  = Toronto ML & Under 211.5

 Spread Points   Result
Portland Over Denver
+4.5 213.5 124-98
  • The Nuggets’ victory in Game 4 was highly needed after Friday’s marathon 4-OT 140-137 loss and now Portland look to steal one in Denver for the 2nd time in the series.
  • Lillard is averaging 27.3 ppg in this series, but is was ice-cold 9-of-22 shooting in Game 4 and just 24-of-63 over the first 3 games, with 5-of-23 from 3-point range.
  • The Nuggets are taking away as much space away from Lillard as possible after watching him torch OKC, making him take more contested shots in the 2nd Round.
  • Over is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.
  • Over is 7-3 in the last 10 meetings in Denver.

OUR PICK  = Over 213.0
