Raptors notch win at Blazers

Toronto picked up a 114-106 Wednesday night at Portland to improve to 8-3 overall and 4-3 on the road. The Raptors trailed 30-23 after one quarter, but outscored the Trail Blazers a combined 64-48 in the ensuing two quarters to take control. Pascal Siakam led Toronto with 36 points on 15-of-28 shooting including 4-of-7 from 3-point range plus 2-of-3 at the free throw line. He also registered six rebounds and three assists. Fred VanVleet accounted for 30 points, seven assists, four boards and two steals. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson tallied 16 points and 11 caroms off the bench. Terence Davis added 15 points and six rebounds as a reserve.

Mavs struggle at Knicks

Dallas lost by a score of 106-103 Thursday night at New York to drop to 6-5 overall and 4-2 on the road. Luka Doncic led the Mavericks with 33 points on 10-of-23 shooting including 3-of-12 from 3-point distance plus 10-of-13 at the free throw line. He also racked up 11 assists, 10 rebounds and three steals. Kristaps Porzingis had 20 points, 11 boards and three blocked shots against his former team. Dwight Powell contributed 12 points, four caroms and two assists. Tim Hardaway Jr. accounted for 12 points and four rebounds off the bench. Boban Marjanovic added 10 points and five boards as a reserve.

NBA Betting Trends

Toronto

The Raptors are 15-5-1 ATS in their last 21 games overall. Toronto is 16-7 ATS in its last 23 Saturday games.

Dallas

The Mavericks are 1-4 ATS in their last five games versus the Atlantic Division. Dallas is 0-5 ATS in its last five home games.

Prediction:

I'm actually surprised the Raptors are being given this much. They've been on the road, but at least have been off the previous two nights and have been great despite the absence of Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka. Having Siakim and VanVleet there to take over games has proven to be effective. Siakam is playing himself into a definite All-Star selection and can carry the Raptors on any given night. Dallas has been inconsistent this season and I think the Raptors will have more in the tank tonight.
