Atlantic Division rivals the Toronto Raptors are on the road to face their hosts the Boston Celtics on Saturday, November 11th.
The Raptors have the rest advantage having last played Wednesday when they handed the Mavericks their first home loss (127-116) while Boston is completing a back-to-back set having stopped the losing streak at two with their 121-107 victory versus the Nets.
Boston swept their Atlantic rivals last year winning all four meetings against the Raptors. The Celtics also hold the all-time record between the squads with 66 victories in 108 matches.
New head coach Darko Rajakovic has changed all the schemes in Toronto and Wednesday’s match offered up both ends of the spectrum as his charges adapt.
In the first half, the Raptors’ defense was non-existent but in the second half, fans got a view of what the team could become with shut-down defensive effort accompanied by ball and player movement offensively.
Pascal Siakam broke out of a rut leading the team with 31 points and 12 rebounds.
O.G. Anunoby provided a strong two-way effort (26 points) and Scottie Barnes was fabulous offering a double-double of 14 points and 14 rebounds along with seven assists, four steals, and two blocks.
Toronto ranks 18th on offense (109.6), and is tied for seventh on defense (107.6) while they register a plus +2.1 net differential ranking 13th overall.
The Raptors are performing well with a 5-3 against the spread offering to date.
Raptors Injury Report
To summarize the injury report…
- Precious Achiuwa, PF (questionable –groin)
- Christian Koloko, C (questionable — respiratory illness)
After back-to-back losses, I anticipated a win by the Celtics against the short-handed Nets although the 10.5 spread felt too rich, but Boston more than covered.
Despite an off night by Kristaps Porzingis the Bean Town crew were functioning on all cylinders with six players scoring in double-figures. Jaylen Brown was hot from the tip leading the scoring with 28 points in just 29 minutes.
Jayson Tatum (23 points, 10 rebounds) and Jrue Holiday (13 points, 12 rebounds, nine assists) each registered double-doubles in 33 minutes.
As of posting Boston ranks fourth offensively (118.1), and third defensively (106.0) with a plus +12.1 net differential that ranks atop the association.
As strong as the Celtics have been their results against the spread are less proficient with a 3-3-2 record.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Boston Celtics NBA Prediction:
Boston has owned the Raptors in recent years offering some intense games, especially at TD Garden. Certainly, Joe Mazzulla must’ve felt that could be the case again as he elected to rest Al Horford against the Nets and play him Saturday instead.
Other than two back-to-back rest disadvantage losses to Philly, the Raptors best victories occurred against tougher opponents (Wolves, Bucks, Mavericks).
Yet, even with the rest advantage and that motivation Boston just seems to come out on the winning end versus the Raps so I’ll take the Celtics to win but the Raptors to keep it closer than the eight point spread.
*Caveat – if Achiuwa is good to go that’ll help the Raptors and if he’s not too rusty could be an x-factor.
