Toronto ran out of gas in the second of their games in L.A. They are shorthanded right now but really battling.
Portland might be the winded team in this one. They are playing the night before at Sacramento.
The Blazers have not gotten off to a great start to the season. Even wounded the Raptors are a tough out.
Toronto is in rough shape right now. No Kyle Lowry and no Serge Ibaka and OG Anunoby left the games early against the Clippers after getting poked in the eye.
They were able to surprisingly beat the Lakers as a 10 point dog but tired in the second half against the Clippers.
Injuries create opportunities. Such has been the case for Norm Powell, who is now in the starting lineup. He can do a lot of things and has been scoring inside and outside.
Lanky Chris Boucher is getting more run upfront and making the most of it. He is actually a good range shooter and not afraid to mix it up inside.
The injury to Anunoby gave some run to Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. He was 9 and 9 off the bench and might get the start if IG is not ready to go.
Pascal Siakam seems to never tire but he can’t score 30 points every night. He has had four straight double-doubles and is getting lots of attention from defenses. Portland might not have someone right to guard him though.
This is the kind of spot where the champs gut out a win. It is not going to be easy though. .
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland also has some injuries they are trying to get through and that may have limited their start.
Jusuf Nurkic is still out but the way that Hassan Whiteside has been playing it is hard to fault that for their inconsistent play. He is not as dynamic but Whiteside has been averaging 15 and 13 while anchoring the defense.
Portland loses length with the injury to Zach Collins, out till March. Collins is a z footer who can make three and really helped out their guards in terms of creating space.
Those guards, Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum, keep doing what they do. They are averaging a combined 53 points per game and have to be thrilled not to see Kyle Lowry suiting up for the other side. At home, they can be tough to beat.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
Toronto is in a tough spot with the injuries. You can see how the new players might fit but they need time together to gel as a team.
Lillard can definitely outscore Siakam if it comes to that. He is built that way.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Blazers -3
Winning on the road is tough and I am not seeing the Portland back to back as enough of an equalizer.
