Toronto Raptors vs. Indiana Pacers - 2/23/20 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Toronto Raptors vs. Indiana Pacers - 2/23/20 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

All-Star Pascal Siakam led the way with 21 points, while fellow NBA All-Star Kyle Lowry had 16 points, 11 assists, seven boards, and five steals in the win.

The Raptors' four-game homestand continues as they host the Milwaukee Bucks for the first time since Game 6 of the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday. The public betting now has 88 percent going on the Raptors as the home favorite.

Lamb suffered the injury during the second quarter of the Pacers' loss to the Toronto Raptors on Sunday. Their strong play at both ends of the floor resulted in Toronto coming away with a 127-81 win.

Per RotoWorld, Lamb's injury makes him questionable for Tuesday's game against the Charlotte Hornets.

Lowry's double-double was his 13th of the season.

According to the Indiana Pacers, this was their first loss by 40 or more points since losing 132-89 to the New York Knicks on January 3, 2010.

In a game Nurse called the best start-to-finish performance in recent memory, the Raptors ran roughshod over the Pacers from the opening tipoff, holding the Pacers to just four baskets on a woeful 17.4 per cent shooting in the first quarter. Chris Boucher had nine points and 11 rebounds.

It was a coup for Chelsea to get the striker Ziyech , one of Ajax's top scorers last season and who was on most of Europe's eyes. That two-window embargo was lifted in January 2020, but the Blues did not bolster their first-team squad last month.

Lamb then walked off the court past his team's bench and had some extra assistance to get back to the locker room. Ibaka had 11 points and 10 rebounds in the first half. Back-to-back three-pointers by seldom-used sharpshooter Thomas put the Raptors up by 46 points with 2:17 to play, and had the Raptors players on the bench up and dancing in celebration.

The Raptors pushed the pace (no pun intended) and scored 33 points in transition.

"I ain't upset about it", Lamb said.

Toronto and Boston meet once more on March 20 at Scotiabank Arena, as the Raptors have the opportunity to tie the season series at two games apiece, something that could prove to be key in jostling for position.

Lowry scored 11 points in the second and the Raptors led 63-32 at the half. Toronto outrebounded IN 57-39.

"We dug ourselves a hole and couldn't get out of it", Sabonis said.
