Toronto Raptors Top Seed in East

DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry are the dudes for Toronto. They have been fantastic once again this season. The big question will be – how do they perform once the postseason begins. They have always had a knack for disappointing play in the postseason. Until then – they are going to approach 60 wins by the time the regular season comes to an end.

DeRozan is the top scorer for Toronto with nearly 24 points per game. The other guard, Lowry is also scoring, but is known for his ability to pass the ball. Lowry is dishing out 7 assists per game. This is the third straight season that the Raptors will finish the regular season with 50+ wins in the regular season.

Celtics Looking to Beat Raptors Again

Boston’s top scorer is guard Kyrie Irving. The former Cavaliers guard is scoring just shy of 25 points per game. He will not play in this game, and is likely out until the postseason. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum are having huge seasons for Boston. Brown is scoring 14 points per game, while Tatus is adding 13.9.

With the Boston Celtics beating the Raptors earlier this week, there is going to be some revenge factor for the home team. Boston would love to compete the sweep of the week, so they are not going to back down. Boston has six straight games since a road loss in New Orleans. In those six games, Boston has allowed 100+ points just once. The Celtics are the third best defense, allowing 100.1 per game.

Toronto Wins at Home

We are really looking forward to this game. Will we see these two teams match up once again in the postseason? If we do – it will be in the Eastern Conference Finals. Can both teams get by the Cavaliers and 76ers? Those are all questions for the future. This game should be a great one.

Look for the Raptors to run the basketball up and down the floor a little quicker than the pace that the Celtics want to go. When push comes to shove, the Raptors are going to win this game at home. Bet on the Toronto Raptors -4 over the Boston Celtics in the NBA on Wednesday.
