Toronto is locked into the second seed in the East and still trying to make a slim push for the top seed, but it pretty much has to win out. Atlanta is currently in the third spot in the East, but tied with the Celtics for the third-best record, just ½ a game over Miami in the Southeast and 1 game ahead of Charlotte. Atlanta has more at stake in this game and is at home. They are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games after a win while the Raptors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games when playing on 1 day of rest.
