The Toronto Raptors will try to make the unthinkable and beat the Oklahoma City and San Antonio on consecutive nights as they clash with the Spurs this Monday at 8:30 PM ET, at the AT&T Center.
The Raptors beat the Thunder 104-98 on Sunday with Kyle Lowry scoring 22 points.
“We got guys who are coming in here who are going to keep playing, keep trying to get it done,” guard Kyle Lowry said. “Greivis, Pat, Chuck and John, they all got that mental toughness, and that just added to what we were building.”
Toronto is 7-6 on the road this season and 4-8 at home.
The Spurs lost to the Thunder last Saturday 113-100, but the good news is they will have Kawhi Leonard back in the lineup.
“Well, I’m sure we’d like to have Kawhi, but that happens to every NBA team at some point in the season,” Popovich said. “You don’t lose just because of that. We would have loved to have had him, but they played better than we did (Saturday) for more of the game.”
“We’ll just regroup, and we’ll play better on Monday and (then) get ready for the big one on Christmas Day,” guard Tony Parker added.
The Spurs are 11 point favorites in the NBA odds, with the game total at 204 points. San Antonio is 10-1 SU in its last 11 games when playing at home against Toronto. The total has gone UNDER in 7 of San Antonio’s last 10 games when playing at home against Toronto.
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
