Like Memphis and Houston tonight, Toronto and San Antonio two of the six remaining undefeateds remaining and will play tonight. The Spurs are small favorites at home without Kawhi Leonard.
The Raptors started with two easy home wins, the first against the Bulls without three of their starters and the second against Philadelphia on the second night of a back-to-back without Joel Embiid. Toronto took care of business and covered a big number both times.
Now they go on a rather challenging road trip that begins in San Antonio and Golden State and ends out in the mountains with Denver and Utah. The Raptors will likely be dogs in all four of those games, at least.
They match up fairly well with San Antonio, though. Serge Ibaka and LaMarcus Aldridge will be a fun one to watch. I assume that Gregg Popovich will find a way to take Jonas Valanciunas out of the game. Gasol can’t take him off the dribble but his spacing will render Valanviunas a non-factor, as he often becomes against good teams. This will lead to more small ball.
San Antonio Spurs
LaMarcus Aldridge is off to a fine start with 26.5 points per in his first two. He’s gone on the record to say that he and Coach Popovich hashed a lot of their differences out just before the season and that he is much more comfortable than he was last season. Right now, he’s enjoying carrying the load with Leonard unavailable.
Newly-Acquired Rudy Gay, Danny Green and DeJounte Murray are the other three in double-figures through the first two games. Green and Murray should be enough to make life hard on DeMar DeRozan tonight. When he doesn’t score efficiently, the Raptors usually struggle, especially away from home.
Patty Mills hasn’t played well in his first two games due in large part to foul trouble. Look for him to come out and play a little smarter and a little better tonight in a San Antonio win.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction: the Spurs take care of the Raptors at home.
Ho-Hum, another Spurs home win. The Raptors are a good measuring stick for Pop to use to motivate his team tonight. When you ‘cap the Spurs there’s always consideration about how badly they want to win. I actually think they will come out and play hard tonight at home.
