Raptors vs Warriors Game 5
Raptors vs Warriors Game 5 (NBA Finals) The Toronto Raptors won again in game 4 with another dominant performance beating the defending champs. Kawhi Leonard was on fire shooting 11-22 from the field, 5-9 from three with 36 points. Serge Ibaka was key off the bench scoring 20 points. Warriors were even lead by Stephen Curry (27 points) and Klay Thompson (28 points) got very little support from Demarcus Cousins who only had 6 points. It looks like he returned too early and hasn’t been able to make an impact on offense nor defense. Seems like the Raptors have been able to get the shots they want on offense and the Warriors have had too many possessions where they look like they are forcing shots.

In all likelihood, Kevin Durant is playing tonight, and what a storybook ending would it be for the Warriors to win down 3-1 with KD’s return. KD won’t be 100% but if he is anywhere around 70%, he should make an impact.
With KD back, I think you have to give the edge to the Warriors -1.5. Kevin Durant is back, Klay will be healthier and it is a must win. I want to see the Raptors win this series, and I predicted them to win in 7. Raptors will still win these series in my opinion. The over is going to be my lean as well. You have to consider that the score in the 2nd half could be higher if the Warriors are down and play the foul game late in the 4th quarter.

Props went 28-15 (+8.5 units) in the Western/Eastern Conference Finals. In game 5, the props went 5-1, Brings us to 13-7 in the finals, and 41-22 (+12.5 units) overall. I really like some of the lines for the props tonight.
Draymond Green (over 8.5 assists)- With Curry, Thompson and KD in the lineup, Draymond will look to get everyone involved. Green should end up with 10-11 assists.
Danny Green (over 8 points)- With Danny back at home, I like for him to score over 8. He had 11 in game one and 8 in game 2 (both in Toronto).
Kawhi Leonard (under 31.5 points)(-115)- Kawhi will have another solid game but I think he will land right around 30 points. This line is a tad inflated.
Kevon Looney (under 8 points)(-120)- Looney wasn’t even set to play in this series with his collar bone injury. He played in game 4 and looked decent scoring 10 points in 20 minutes. A few things here, one- the Raptors weren’t expecting him to play and had no game plan for him. Two- he looked like he was in a lot of pain throughout the game and I don’t think he will get over 20 minutes in this game, which makes me comfortable with this pick. He will end up with 5-6 points.
Pascal Siakim (under 19.5 points)(-115)- Siakim had 19 points in 41 minutes last game and I believe he will fall under this tonight. I also like the under 1.5 3PM as well. If he can miss his first 3, I think he have this bet in the bag.
