Joe D'Amico's NBA Slam Dunk Winner
Indiana vs. Toronto,

Score: 90 - 88
Point Spread: -2/-110 Indiana
Today's winner is Indiana over Toronto. This is my Slam Dunk Play.
Indiana is a solid team. They dismissed Orlando quickly in the post-season LY, then gave Miami a tough run as the Pacers won 2 of the first 3 against the Heat. Miami went on to win the final 3 games in the series, but not after Indiana earned their respect. The Pacers will be without start Forward, Danny Granger due to a knee injury. However, the rest of the starters have been playing together for quite a while forming a symmetry that few squads in the league possess. They have owned the Raptors over the years, taking 7 of the L8(SU) including all 3 meetings from a season ago. The Raptors are at best a mediocre team. They tried to bolster the unit by acquiring Jonas Valanciunas. The Lithuanian comes in at 6'11". But Indiana has a big, strong frontcourt that will slow down Valanciunas and contain an ailing Bargnani (flu). The favorite is 10-4 ATS the L14 in this series. Take Indiana. Thank you.
