Why should you bet on Toronto?

DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry each posted 21 points in Game 3, as Toronto moved to a 2-1 lead and took back their home-court advantage. They had gone 15 for 63 as a pair in the first two games, including 1 for 17 from downtown. In Game 3, DeRozan made his first three shots from the floor and had a dozen points in the first period. This would only be the second time the Raptors have won a playoff series, but they do have the momentum for now.

Why should you put your money on the Pacers?

Paul George has returned to dominant form, and he had 25 points, 10 boards and six assists in Game 3, even in the losing effort. The problem was that the rest of the Pacers were shut down by the smothering Toronto defense. The Pacers only posted 36 points in the first half, finding themselves in a 17-point hole that they simply could not erase in the second half. They need to get back to that defensive intensity that brought them Game 1 and made Toronto sweat hard in Game 2.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The Raptors have found their mojo on both ends of the floor. I’m predicting a 99-90 Raptors win in Game 4.
