So far, the Toronto Raptors have played 8 games and have a disappointing 2-6 record and currently sit 12th in the Eastern Conference. The last time we talked about the Toronto Raptors was there next game at the 76ers. They played another game against Utah Jazz where they lost 140-333 in TRIPLE OT. The last time that the Toronto Raptors played TRIPLE OT was in 2001 in February. Then they played the Pacers where they won 74-72 and won even when they scored only 5 points in the 4th quarter and they were very close to losing.
That's where Derozan had 37 points, 8 rebounds in 60 minutes. Insane right?
So far, Anderson, Kleiza, Lowry and Fields are dealing with various injuries. Lowry is expected to miss 1-2 weeks as he is dealing with a bruised cuboid in his ankle. At the same time, he has been patient and frustrated as has he wants to return on the court and play with this teammates. Alan Anderson is out for 3-6 weeks with a partially torn plantar fascia and Landry Feilds is out for a awhile as he had surgery on a nercie in his left elbow. Many people thought he was just flat out horrible, however Fields has said that he felt twitches whenever he took a shot even during preseason. He should have diagnosed that problem then, right? Linas Kleiza is dealing with a sore ankle and could be suited up for today's game.
Dwayne Casey feels that this is an opportunity for other players to step up and I agree with him as the Raptors want to see whether or not they can do there job they were told to do
Raptors vs. Celtics Preview
The Toronto Raptors who are 2-6 on the season, play away versing the Boston Celtics today in a afternoon game at 12:30PM. If you live in Toronto, you can catch the game on Sportsnet or on radio at FAN590. It's going to be interesting to watch Valanciunas toughness and grit as a rookie go against Kevin Garnett who seems to pick on rookies. Point guard Rajon Rondo is questionable for today's game as he is dealing with a sprained ankle and Toronto's Linas Kleiza is dealing with a sore ankle. It's going to be a tough and difficult game because the Raptors have a lost 8 straight at the TD Centre in Boston and Raptors start a stretch of 4 games in 5 nights. They will be facing the Orlando Magic on Sunday at 1PM. Who will win the game? I think it will be Boston 87-7
Please stay turn early next week as I will make a new post on the Raptors should acquire and why with all their recent struggles. This blog talked about the latest news on the Raptors, provided an injury report and also a preview for tonight's game.
