Toronto Raptors vs Portland Trail Blazers Prediction,Preview– 11-13-2019
Toronto Raptors vs. Portland Trailblazers
Where: Moda Center, Portland, OR
When: Wednesday, November 13, 10:05 PM. ET.
The Portland Trailblazers will be trying to bounce back from their loss to the Sacramento Kings when they take on the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.
Raptors Going For Eight win in Last Nine Contests Against The Blazers
Toronto is coming off a back-to-back against the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers and will be dealing with a little fatigue playing in their third game in four nights. Fortunately for them, the Trailblazers haven’t played well on the defensive end, which gives the raptors a good chance of escaping with the win.
The Raptors are averaging 112.5 points per game, but they were held to 88 points by the Clippers in their last game and will be hoping for a better offensive performance on Wednesday.
Pascal Siakam led the Raptors in the loss with 16 points, 10 rebounds, and six assists. Norman Powell finished with 15 points and four rebounds, while Fred VanVleet added 15 points and four rebounds.
The Raptors are a good defensive team, holding opponents to 106.7 points, which is ninth in the league. Even though they didn’t have Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka, they were able to hold the Clippers to 98 points in the loss. They will give themselves a chance to win this game if they can hold the Trailblazers under 100 points.
Trailblazers Going For Second Win In Seven Games
The Trailblazers managed to snap their four-game losing streak when they beat the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday, but they failed to take the momentum into their last game, losing to the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday. They will be trying to bounce back from the loss and pick up a win over the short-handed Raptors, which will give them their second win in their last seven games.
Portland has played well offensively this season, averaging 114.1 points per game, which is eighth in the league. But, they were held to 99 points by the Kings and will need to play significantly better to get past the Raptors.
Damian Lillard once again led the way for the Trailblazers, finishing the game with 27 points, four rebounds, and five assists. C.J. McCollum finished with 24 points and five rebounds, while Hassan Whiteside added 17 points and seven rebounds.
Portland’s biggest problem has been on the defensive end, with the team giving up 114.6 points per game. They gave up 107 points to the Kings in their last game and will need another decent defensive effort to get the win.

Toronto Raptors Live Stream On Youpit Network
The Toronto Raptors are a Canadian professional basketball team based in Toronto, Ontario. The Raptors compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member club of the league’s Eastern Conference Atlantic Division. They play their home games at the Scotiabank Arena, which they share with the Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League (NHL). The team was founded in 1995 as part of the NBA’s expansion into Canada, along with the Vancouver Grizzlies. Since the 2001–02 season, the Raptors have been the only Canadian-based team in the league, as the Grizzlies relocated from Vancouver, British Columbia to Memphis, Tennessee.
Like most expansion teams, the Raptors struggled in their early years, but after the acquisition of Vince Carter through a draft day trade in 1998, the team set league-attendance records and made the NBA playoffs in 2000, 2001, and 2002. Carter was instrumental in leading the team to their first playoff series win in 2001, where they advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals. During the 2002–03 and 2003–04 seasons, they failed to make significant progress, and Carter was traded in 2004 to the New Jersey Nets.
After Carter left, Chris Bosh emerged as the team leader. For the 2006–07 season, Bryan Colangelo was appointed as general manager, and through a combination of Bosh, 2006 first overall draft pick Andrea Bargnani, and a revamp of the roster, the Raptors qualified for their first playoff berth in five years, capturing the Atlantic Division title. In the 2007–08 season, they also advanced to the playoffs, but failed to reach the post-season in each of the next five seasons. Colangelo overhauled the team’s roster for the 2009–10 season in a bid to persuade pending free agent Bosh to stay, but Bosh departed to sign with the Miami Heat in July 2010, ushering in yet another era of rebuilding for the Raptors.
Masai Ujiri replaced Colangelo in 2013, and helped herald a new era of success, led by a backcourt duo of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry. The Raptors returned to the playoffs the following year and became a consistent playoff team in every year of Ujiri’s tenure. Under Ujiri, the team also won five Division titles and registered their most successful regular season in 2018. However, the team’s failure to reach the NBA Finals prompted Ujiri to fire head coach Dwane Casey after the 2018 playoffs concluded, and conduct the high-profile trade of DeRozan for Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green later that summer, as well as acquiring Marc Gasol before the trade deadline. In the 2019 playoffs, the Raptors won their first Eastern Conference title and advanced to their first NBA Finals, where they won their first NBA championship.
