Utah Jazz vs Toronto Raptors NBA Basketball Betting and Free Sports Picks

The Toronto Raptors will try to keep the pressure on the first-place Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference standings when they open a three-game homestand Friday night against the Utah Jazz.

The Raptors (32-14) are 1 1/2 games behind the Celtics (35-14) and take a 17-3 record at the Air Canada Centre -- the second-best home record in the NBA behind the San Antonio Spurs' 20-3 mark -- into the homestand.

The Raptors came off a three-day break Wednesday to defeat the Atlanta Hawks 108-93 at Philips Arena and are 6-4 in their past 10 games.

They used the days off for some practice after losing to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday.

The Jazz (20-28) are 6-19 on the road after they rallied to defeat the Detroit Pistons 98-95 in overtime on Wednesday to go 4-6 in their past 10. The Jazz were coming off a loss to the Hawks on Monday.

The Raptors already have a win over the Jazz, a 109-100 verdict on Nov. 3 in Salt Lake City, and are going for a season sweep of Utah for the fourth time in the past five seasons.

Toronto has not lost the season series to Utah since 2012-13.

As the Raptors press to gain home-court advantage through the conference finals, coach Dwane Casey still has concerns, particularly with the way the team has performed late in close games.

In games in which the difference in the score is five points or fewer with five minutes or fewer remaining, the Raptors have gone from sixth and 10th in field-goal percentage and points-per-game during clutch time last season to 21st and 17th in those categories this season.

Meanwhile, there have been reports of tension with the Jazz as trade rumors abound and the team has struggled since posting a 13-11 record after winning their sixth straight game on Dec. 4. Jazz guard/forward Joe Ingles suggests that the reports are exaggerated.
