Raptors On The Verge Of Franchise History

Travelling north of the border has been a near death sentence for opponents of the Toronto Raptors, as Canada’s only NBA franchise has a league-leading 13-1 home record on the season. Just how good have the Raps been at home? If the team can pick up a win against the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday, the Raptors will set a franchise record for consecutive home victories (12).

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in 12 of the Bucks’ last 14 games.
  • The Raptors are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games.
  • Raptors PF Serge Ibaka is expected to be back in the lineup after serving a 1-game suspension.

This game holds added weight as well, as it is the first time the Raptors and Bucks have met since their first-round playoff series last season. The Raptors ultimately took that series 4-2 but had no answers for Giannis Antetokounmpo, who averaged 24.8 points, 9.4 rebounds and 4.0 assists while shooting 53.6 percent.

“The Greek Freak” has been doing much of the same this season, as Antetokounmpo has scored at least 20 points in 24 consecutive games. The Bucks are not the same team they were in the playoffs thanks to the addition of point guard Eric Bledsoe, who adds yet another offensive weapon for Milwaukee.
