Raptors falter in fourth

Toronto stumbled in the fourth quarter on the second night of a back-to-back Monday night as it fell 98-88 at the Clippers. The Raptors were outscored 25-10 in the fourth quarter of the loss. Pascal Siakam led Toronto with 16 points on 6-of-17 shooting including 1-of-6 from 3-point range plus 3-of-6 at the free throw line. He also accounted for 10 rebounds and six assists. Norman Powell tallied 15 points, four boards and two assists. Fred VanVleet contributed 14 points, eight dimes, three steals and two rebounds. Chris Boucher added 13 points, six boards and two blocked shots off the bench.

Trail Blazers' struggles continue

Portland lost by a score of 107-99 Tuesday night at Sacramento to drop to 4-7 overall and 3-4 on the road. The Trail Blazers led by three at halftime before being outscored 35-21 in the third quarter on their way to the defeat. Damian Lillard paced Portland with 27 points on 6-of-10 shooting including 2-of-5 from 3-point range plus 13-of-14 at the free throw line. He also registered five assists, four rebounds and two steals. C.J. McCollum accounted for 24 points and five boards. Hassan Whiteside had 17 points and seven caroms. Kent Bazemore added 12 points, five rebounds and three assists.

NBA Betting Trends

Toronto

The Raptors are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games. Toronto is 6-2-1 ATS in its last nine games versus the Western Conference.

Portland

The Trail Blazers are 11-2 ATS in their last 13 Wednesday games. Portland is 2-6 ATS in its last eight games played on zero days of rest.

Prediction:

The Trail Blazers are going to be fatigued for this contest and while Toronto might be as well since it showed it in the fourth quarter Monday night, it at least had yesterday to rest up. Toronto is undermanned with Kyle Lowry out and perhaps Serge Ibaka again too, but with Siakam and VanVleet plus others there is still plenty left in the tank. I think Toronto takes advantage of Portland's struggles and gets the job done in this spot.
