If you have been following my plays the past few weeks, you would already know that since the Raptors acquired Rudy Gay from Memphis, I have been riding TO pretty hard. They won six of their first eight games with Gay in the lineup, and I cashed in on most of those victories. Lately I took a few tough losses with the Raps, and I stayed away from last night’s game versus the Pacers.
Much like the game versus the Grizzlies a week earlier, the Pacers totally shut down the Raptors, and Toronto wasn’t able to get anything going offensively. Making matters worse, Rudy Gay struggled through a back injury, eventually bowing out in the third quarter and lying on the sidelines receiving treatment. If Gay is able to play Saturday, he certainly won’t be at 100%.
The Bucks are clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot, and they are playing like a team that wants to go to the playoffs. Milwaukee has won back to back road games against two tough teams, Dallas and Houston. They have had a couple of rest days since winning on a buzzer beater in Houston, and they can put the Raptors playoff hopes to bed on Saturday night.
The Raptors come limping in playing their second game in as many nights, and their third game in four nights. With their star player ailing, they might not have a lot of fight left in them. Be sure to check back each day for more of Jesse’s expert basketball picks w/analysis at Accuwager.com
