NBA: Streaks, Tips, Notes

Houston Rockets at Toronto Raptors

Toronto Raptors (5-19, 11-13 ATS) snapping it's six-game losing streak Friday defeating Mavericks 95-74 look to have a perfect opportunity to record rare back-2-back victories. This has been a home series with the host team winning eleven straight (9-1-1 ATS) including 5-0 SU/ATS by Raptors. Plenty of reason to back Raptors here as they enter 6-1 ATS at home on Sunday's and that Rockets are on a 2-6 (2-5-1 ATS) road skid this season outscored 108.1 to 100.6 along with being 1-6 SU/ATS on the road playing on Sunday. But, before betting the mortgage money on Purple Dinos keep in mind Raptors are 0-4 (1-3 ATS) attempting back-2-back victories this season, on an 0-6 (2-4 ATS) home skid after allowing 80 or less points.

The microscope will remain focused on the Los Angeles Lakers (10-14) as they continue to struggle under Mike D'Antoni. They travel to the city of brotherly love to take on the Philadelphia 76ers (12-11), which figures to be a tough matchup even if Jrue Holliday doesn't play.

They have covered only three of their last 12 road games. The 76ers have covered 11 of their last 14 against Pacific Division teams. The Lakers have covered four of their past five in Philadelphia. The Lakers are -3 with a total of 197.
