Toronto Raptors 213
Golden State Warriors -5.5
The Raptors took Game 1 of this series at home in a 118-109 victory as slight 1.5-point home favorites. Sunday’s Game 2 was a different story in a 109-104 loss as 2.5-point favorites at home on VietBet online sportsbook’s closing spread. The total in that game ended as a PUSH on 213 points after going OVER 212.5 points in the best-of-seven series opener. Toronto heads on the road with a straight-up 4-4 record (3-5 against the spread) in eight previous postseason road games.
Toronto had a five-point lead at the half of Sunday’s game, but it got outscored 34-21 in the third quarter in the eventual five-point loss. Kawhi Leonard was somewhat quiet in the series opener, but he ended Game 2 with 34 points while going 8-for-20 from the field and just 2-of-9 from three-point range. The Raptors shot 37.2 percent from the field and 28.9 percent from beyond the arc.
Golden State was able to gain the home court edge with Sunday’s victory. It has gone 13-5 SU in the postseason with a 6-2 record at home. The Warriors are 3-5 ATS in those eight home games and the total has been evenly split 4-4. The loss in the series opener was their only setback in their last eight postseason contests.
Kevin Durant has missed his last seven starts with the calf injury he sustained in Game 5 of the conference semifinal series against Houston. His playing status for Wednesday night is listed as day-to-day. Klay Thompson had to leave Sunday’s game with a sore hamstring and he is also day-to-day for Game 4. Stephen Curry scored 23 points in Game 2 and DeMarcus Cousins added 11 points and 10 rebounds to the winning cause.
Golden State is a bit banged up heading into this game, but I still think it finds a way to win and cover the 5.5 points on VietBet’s current spread.
