Tuesday's NBA Free Pick: Toronto Raptors +6

Tuesday's NBA Free Pick: Toronto Raptors +6

Most of the focus will be on the Raptors inability to win games and not how well this team has been playing since the return of starting point guard Kyle Lowry.

Toronto enters this game having lost four straight since the return of Lowry, but those four losses have come by a combined 15 points. Their latest defeat was a 106-111 double-overtime loss to San Antonio. In each of their last three games the Raptors have held had the lead in the 4th quarter. This team is going to continue to play extremely hard until they are able to break through with a W.

This is going to be an especially important game for Lowry, who the Rockets traded this offseason to the Raptors for a draft pick. On the other side of things, the Rockets entire organization is dealing with the death of head coach Kevin McHale's 23-year-old daughter. It's going to be extremely hard for them to come out with the focus needed to beat a hungry team like the Raptors, especially with such a big game on the road tomorrow night against Oklahoma City.

Toronto is 17-6 ATS over their last 23 games when they have lost 4 of 5 over the last two seasons and are 20-6 ATS over their last 26 road games following back-to-back losses by 6-points or less! BET THE RAPTORS!
