View from the Opposing Bench: Raptors Republic
I vaguely, vaguely remember when the Celtics lost to the Raptors back in February. It seemed like a pretty dark sign on the season at the time. Then they lost to the Pistons twice in four days and we all realized what a dark sign looked like. Ugh.
Today, the Raptors have a guy named Alan Anderson starting at small forward. Full disclosure: I am not sure I have ever heard of that person before in my life. I’m looking at this name and it’s not registering at all. I don’t know if that is a reflection on me or this terrible basketball team.
Tonight is, of course, the first of three consecutive games for Boston. Eyes should be on minutes and reduction of injury risk. Maybe we’ll see a split-squad format to tonight’s roster. Maybe we’ll see Marquis Daniels. All will be revealed…tonight…AT THE AIR CANADA CENTRE!
C’s 95, Raptors 84
