After suffering our first loss of the postseason when it comes to our NBA Locks, we got right back on the correct side of things and now sit at 6-1 for these NBA Playoffs. I’m no expert, but I think that’s a pretty strong record.
Tonight we’ve circled Game 6 between the Raptors and Celtics with Toronto looking to force a Game 7 and keep its season alive.
NBA Lock For Wednesday: Raptors vs. Celtics
The Pick: Raptors +3.5
Tip-Off: 6:30 PM EST
This series has been quite the back and forth affair with both team’s defenses really stepping up in the moment. Both of these teams are among the league’s best on the defensive side of the ball and we’ve seen that in the scores of the first five games of this series being relatively low.
While the Celtics are the more talented group and arguably the more complete squad, this series has felt like a series destined to go to seven games after the Raptors reeled off two straight wins to knot things up at 2-2.
In order for Toronto to get the job done it’s not only going to need Kyle Lowry to forget his underwhelming performance in Game 5 and fill up the scoresheet a bit more, the Raptors will need Marc Gasol to step up with Serge Ibaka still nursing an ankle injury. Fred VanVleet and Lowry will need to get the offense rolling, and fast, in order for Toronto to keep its season alive and with the season on the line and being spotted 3.5 points in this one, I think the Raps are the play here.
Toronto has a little bit of magic left in the tank, maybe not enough to win this series, but enough to push it to seven games.
