AT&T Center Has Been a Nightmare for Raptors in Recent Years

No Kawhi Leonard, no problem so far for the San Antonio Spurs in the young NBA season. On the heels of back-to-back wins without their star small forward, the Spurs will look to make it three straight when the Toronto Raptors come to town today.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 1-4 ATS in their last five games on the road against the Spurs.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Spurs’ last five games with one day off between games.
  • The Raptors are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games after consecutive ATS wins.

MyBookie opened the Raps as 3-point road underdogs with a total of 206.

Leonard, who’s been dealing with a quad injury, doesn’t have a timetable to return at this point. A video went viral on Friday showing the San Diego State product struggling to walk up stairs, so based on that alone he’s likely not close to returning.

In his absence, power forward LaMarcus Aldridge has stepped up in a big way. Aldridge delivered an average of 26.5 points and 10 boards in the first two contests while totaling four blocked shots. The big man helped hold Minnesota to 43.5 percent from the floor and fared even better on Saturday, as the Spurs held the Bulls to 37.8 from the field.

Toronto is beginning a six-game road trip and may be forced to start things off without starting center Jonas Valanciunas. JV is traveling with the team but is not expected to play on Monday as a result of an ankle injury he suffered vs Philadelphia on Saturday.

The Spurs have a history of dominating vs Toronto. San Antonio took both meetings last year and has won three straight vs Canada’s lone NBA club. In the Raptors’ last eight trips to San Antonio, they’re 0-8 SU.
