Meanwhile, the Raptors will be looking to build on their current seven-game win streak after making light work of the Heat in a 101-81 rout on Friday. DeMar DeRozan had a great game of 33 points on 12 of 25 shooting while Kyle Lowry added 15 points and Terrence Ross had 13 as the Raptors took full advantage of a Heat team missing key players in Goran Dragic and Hassan Whiteside. With the easy win, Toronto improves to 28-15 on the season and 14-6 at home.
In ATS trends, the Clippers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games and 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games overall, while the Raptors are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five home games.
Head to head, the Clippers are 6-15 ATS in the last 21 meetings and 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings in Toronto.
The Clippers have been playing great to win without Griffin on the court, but this could be a task too tough as the Raptors have been on fire and are always tough to beat at the Air Canada Center. Take the Raptors to pull away late and keep their winning streak alive.
