We continue to absolutely roll with our NBA Locks this postseason. After picking the Raptors +3.5 to push this series to seven games on Wednesday, we’re now 7-1 with our locks during these NBA Playoffs.
For Friday’s lock, we’re going right back to this series for what should be an extremely exciting Game 7 between Boston and Toronto.
NBA Lock For Friday: Boston Celtics vs. Toronto Raptors
The Pick: Raptors +2.5
Tip-Off: 9:00 PM EST
After the Celtics jumped out to a 2-0 lead in this series, most had written off the Raptors, but Toronto answered the call and knotted up the series at two games apiece before the two squads traded wins in Games 6 and 7.
Some people may say that it’s been a bit of a fluke to see the Raptors win three of the last four games in this series and plenty of folks are certainly going to be off Toronto in Game 7 because a team hardly ever wins four out of five games to close out a series. That’s what the regular people are going to think on Friday night, but we’re not going to be regular, we’re going to go against the trend and stick with the underdog Raptors tonight catching 2.5 points. Our keep things simple plane has pushed us to a 7-1 record already, so we’re sticking with that.
The Raptors go as Kyle Lowry goes and the man sure did go in Game 6 playing 53 minutes and scoring 33 points on 12-of-20 shooting. He needed a strong bounceback game after a poor outing in Game 5 and he delivered on Wednesday. Lowry should be entering Game 7 with all of the confidence in the world and if you add that to the fact that Toronto has been able to play a bit of small ball and really frustrate the Celtics’ offense, especially late in games, it’s hard not to like the Raps to pull off yet another upset.
