View from the Opposing Bench: Raptors Republic
Apologies for the delay folks, but to give us some credit, the C’s took the first quarter off for this one as well. Heyo! With the heavy minutes logged last night, along with a 3am arrival in Toronto, Boston is short on energy against a Toronto squad hell-bent on revenge after a flogging last week in Boston. The good news is the Raptors still have just as little talent healthy as they did last Wednesday, making this game entirely winnable despite being of the back-to-back variety. With the little margin of error Boston has created for themselves, they have to push hard here to avoid following into another swoon with two dates against Chicago looming next week.
Celtics 82, Raptors 80
