Raptors vs 76ers coverage
Injury Update: Andre Iguodala is out tonight which makes it the fourth game he will miss this season. The same starting lineup used last night will more than likely be used tonight.
Make no mistake about it, these are two bad teams. The Raptors are still recovering from the departure of Chris Bosh (be 'Like a Bosh') and bring out former #1 overall draft pick Andrea Bargnani as their "star" player, I guess. Playing the Raptors is always nice because it gives me a great excuse to post my ode to Reginald Evans.
In the starting lineup yet again, I'd like to see Evan Turner be as aggressive as he was last night, except shooting a better percentage. Playing a complete game is also on my wish list for the youngins Turner and Jrue Holiday. Last night they both had encouraging first quarters, only to disappear as the game moved along into the second half. Overall, the development of these two remains to be the most important outcome of these games (or a loss if you're already on the #missionBJ train/bus/rickshaw).
Game starts at 7:00 PM fellow members of SAMCRO. Hope to chat with you in this here Game Thrizzy.
Cuddle up with John Stamos, grab the new issue of Good Housekeeping, and watch our boys take on the (veloci)Raptors...
