Today’s NBA Playoff Prediction: Philadelphia 76ers at Toronto Raptors – Basketball Pick for 5/5/19

NBA – SUN 5/5 | 3:30 PM EDT | WELLS FARGO CENTER

Toronto Raptors Trying To Stop Two-Game Losing Streak

From the time when they won the first game of the series, Toronto has been stifled by Philadelphia 76ers defense, which has kept them below 100 points for the last two games. They will attempt to snap their losing trend and recapture home court advantage with a win on this afternoon. Toronto had the eight best offensive team in the league throughout the regular season but they have labored with their shots in the postseason and are averaging 103 points per game on 46% shooting from the field and 33% shooting from three-point range.

Philadelphia 76ers Going For Seventh Win in Eight Games

Philadelphia was able to bounce back from their series-opening loss to The Toronto Raptors and have succeeded to win their last two games. They will be working towards their seventh win in their last eight games and attempting to take a 3-1 series advantage when they face Philadelphia on today. The 76ers have played skillfully offensively during the playoffs and the team is averaging 114.6 points per game shooting 47% from the field and 33% from three-point range.

Pascal Siakam is doubtful with a calf injury he experienced in Game 3, and if he doesn’t play the Toronto Raptors will be tremendously restrained offensively. Take Philadelphia, a strong home team, to go up 3-1.

Pick *PHILADELPHIA -2.5
