Raptors & Celtics are Trending in Different Directions

The Boston Celtics recently usurped the No. 2 spot from the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference standings and can pad their lead to 1.5 games with a win over the Atlantic Division rivals in Beantown tonight. Winners of four straight, the Celtics will look to achieve their first five-game winning streak of the season in the process.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games after consecutive ATS losses.
  • The Raptors are 6-22 SU in their last 28 games on the road against the Celtics.
  • The total has gone UNDER in three of the Raptors' last four games against the Celtics.

Toronto hasn’t looked like its usual dominant self lately, as Canada’s lone NBA club ended January with an 8-9 record – the first time they’ve finished a month under .500 since March of 2015. The Raptors will be without leading scorer DeMar DeRozan, who’s suffering from an ankle injury. Dwane Casey’s squad hasn’t collected consecutive victories in over two weeks, but they did pick up a 108-106 overtime triumph vs the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday.

Isaiah Thomas continues to get the job done for the Celtics when the stakes are at their highest. The diminutive point guard scored 24 of his 41 points in the fourth quarter of Boston’s 113-109 win over the Detroit Pistons at home. Thomas is averaging a career-high 29.4 points per game in 2016-17 and will represent the East in the all-star game after getting named as a reserve by the league’s coaches.

The Raptors, who have won both of their meetings with the Celts this season, are 5-1 SU and ATS in the last six collisions between the teams.
