San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs enter tonight’s matchup sporting a 33-26 record that ranks them 2nd in the Southwest Division. And in the Western Conference, the Spurs currently rank 7th overall. Although they’re currently in the running for playoff qualification, San Antonio will want to strengthen their playoff chances in the coming weeks. So what chance do they have of picking up this road win tonight? Well the online basketball betting odds aren’t giving them much of a shot. This isn’t all that shocking however, seeing the different kind of success both sides are having. Ultimately it’s probably best to shy away from the Spurs since they’re in a bit of a rut at the moment.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (21.4 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 6.1 apg), LaMarcus Aldridge (21.0 ppg, 9.0 rpg, 2.6 apg), and Rudy Gay (14.5 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 2.6 apg).
The Raptors leap into this Friday night matchup sporting a 43-16 record that ranks them 1st in the Atlantic Division. In addition, Toronto ranks in the upper echelons of the Eastern Conference seeing as how they’re No. 2 in the East. Undoubtedly they’ll be looking to prove that dominance this evening. And looking over the numbers, it’s clear they shouldn’t have too hard of a time doing so. Right now the Spurs rank 13th in scoring and 16th in defense. Comparatively the Raptors rank 6th in the league in scoring and 10th in defense. Seeing as how the Raptors are 2-1 in their last 3 versus San Antonio, it makes sense to stick with Toronto tonight.
Players to Watch: Kawhi Leonard (27.0 ppg, 7.7 rpg, 3.3 apg), Pascal Siakam (16.1 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 2.8 apg), and Serge Ibaka (16.0 ppg, 8.0 rpg, 1.5 apg).
