The Toronto Raptors are set to face the best team in the land, the Golden State Warriors, in another East v West match-up for the second time this season in the NBA at the Scotiabank Arena.
Toronto Raptors are 11th in the Eastern Conference standings with a record of 13 wins and 15 defeats in their first 28 matches of the season. The Raptors have won three times and lost twice in their last five games. They will be facing the Golden State Warriors for a second time this season after their first meeting ended 119-104 in favor of the Warriors.
GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
This season, the Golden State Warriors have been the best team in the league. Buoyed by the form of Stephen Curry and his supporting cast, such as Jordan Poole, who scored 33 points as they outclassed the Raptors last time out, the Golden State Warriors have lost only five times this season. However, there are indications that Warriors coach Steve Kerr plans on resting a number of his starters for the game against the Toronto Raptors after several players picked up injuries.
EXPERT BETTING TIPS
The Golden State Warriors have been by far the most consistent and dominant team in the NBA this season, even without Klay Thompson and James Wiseman. Unlike the Warriors, the Toronto Raptors have struggled at times this season, despite players like Fred VanVleet and rookie Scottie Barnes impressing greatly. Nevertheless, the Warriors have strolled to victory in four of their last five matches and are expected to carry the day in this one, too, despite their injuries and forced rotation.
- Toronto Raptors to win for -380
