INJURY TO WATCH
Los Angeles small forward Danilo Gallinari (hand) is out for today's game. Shooting guard Avery Bradley (hernia) is out until early May, while point guard Patrick Beverley (knee) is out for the season. For the Raptors, CJ Miles (questionable) is questionable.
Toronto is 30-6 at home this season, including a 116-112 home triumph versus the Nets last contest. The Raptors haven't covered the spread in their last five contests, but still went 3-2 straight up during that stretch. The Clippers have lost five of their last six games, including three defeats by eight or more points. I believe the Raptors will be up for this game as they are closing in on clinching the top seed in the Eastern Conference. With the Clippers barely clinging to life in the Western Conference playoff race, a loss here might be the final straw.
