Toronto Raptors Betting
The Toronto Raptors snapped a three-game losings streak with a win over the Phoenix Suns and they are lucky to hold on to the second spot of the NBA Eastern Conference playoff picture as the Boston Celtics are on a slump as well. Pascal Siakam led the team in their last game with 33 points, seven rebounds and three assists while Kyle Lowry did 28 points along with six assists and five rebounds. Norman Powell chipped in with 26 points but Chris Boucher was the team’s anchor in the paint as he did 19 points and fifteen rebounds during that match. On the road, the Raptors are also tough to beat as they won 20 of their 29 games.

Golden State Warriors Betting
Great news for the Golden State Warriors as Stephen Curry is making a comeback in this game against the Toronto Raptors. This team has been rolling without the former MVP as they won two of their last three games and the addition of Curry will give them that added boost. Sitting still at the bottom of the overall NBA standings, the Warriors are seeking to have the new players get along with Curry as the season dwindles down to their last games. There is not much to report on their victories but this should be a new day for the Warriors moving forward.
