Get ready for some late-night hoops action as the Toronto Raptors (23W-40L) swoop down to the Moda Center, ready to claw at the Portland Trail Blazers (17W-45L).

Pencil in that tipoff for 11:00PM EST, folks, and don’t forget to grab your popcorn. The over/under is set at a tantalizing 227.0, with the Raptors snarling at -1.5 and the Blazers huffing and puffing at 1.5. Both teams are itching to bounce back from recent losses – the Raptors got singed 113-120 by the Suns on 03/07/24, while the Blazers got rocket-blasted 107-123 by Houston on 03/08/24. So, buckle up, sports fans, because this game is about to get wild.
