Point Spread Pick:
The Raptors came back from 15 points down midway through the 4th to get within 2 in a game that was far from their strongest. Improvement is likely in Game 4 and if the refs can call a fair game Toronto will be a handful for the Nets. Note: Raptors starting guard Kyle Lowry was banged up in Game 3 and while I expect him to play and start keep an eye on the injury report.
Take the Toronto Raptors +4
