The Toronto Raptors were happy to draw the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night to help the team break out of its funk.
The team won its first five games of the season before dropping three in a row, then halting that skid with a win over the Sixers on Friday night.
For the Raptors, they’re hoping a date with the New Orleans Pelicans is another game against an inferior opponent that they can take advantage of to stay in the win column.
The Pelicans didn’t have Anthony Davis in the lineup for their last contest, and his status is in doubt for this one.
New Orleans Pelicans:
The Pelicans picked up their only win of the season on Tuesday in a 120-105 victory over the Dallas Mavericks, and they did that with star center Anthony Davis sitting out the second half of the contest with a bruised right hip. He then missed the next night’s 106-98 loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
The Pelicans won both matchups against the Raptors a year ago, and they did it with Davis and Jrue Holiday on the sideline each time.
The team picked up a 95-93 victory over the Raptors in Toronto on Jan. 18, then a 100-97 win in New Orleans on Feb. 23.
The Raptors beat the Sixers by a score of 119-103, shooting a season-high 48.3 percent from the field in the contest, and turning the ball over a season-low eight times. They also outrebounded Philadelphia by a comfortable 56-37 margin.
Kyle Lowry put up 23 points for the second game in a row, while Luis Scola put up a season-high 21 points, including 17 in the third quarter.
That was a valuable contribution for a Raptors team that was playing without forwards DeMarre Carroll and Terrence Ross. After this contest, the Raptors head out on a five-game road trip against Western Conference opponents.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The under is 9-1-1 in the Pelicans’ last 11 road games.
- The under is 15-5-1 in the Pelicans’ last 21 games after allowing 100 or more points in their previous game.
- The under is 9-2 in the Raptors’ last 11 games against Southwest Division opponents.
- The under is 5-2 in the Raptors’ last seven overall.
Free NBA Prediction:
There will be a lot of offensive talent watching this game from the sidelines. We also don’t know for certain if the Raptors have gotten out of their funk just yet, as a win over the 76ers doesn’t prove anything.

Both sides figure to have some difficulty scoring at various stretches throughout the game. Both games between these opponents were close a year ago, so there won’t be any free points on this night.
