    Interested in the Gasol/KAT match up. KAT's been great this season (I have him on the 3rd all-nba team).

    Wiggins had a good game against OKC the other night. He always turns it up against the Raptors. Hopefully we see Kawhi cover him. It's fun when Kawhi is defending the opposing team's go to perimeter scorer.

    Last time we played was all the way back in October. That's when they had Jimmy. Kawhi put up 35 that game. Wiggins did not play then.

    Really want the win here. Let's go get it!

    tried...could only "like" the original post once. It's not going to be an easy won. Was surprised to see that the Wolves are 25-15 at home which is pretty strong. And Wiggins tends to remember he's good when he plays us. Organizationally, Minny might want to lose to stay ahead of the Lakers in the ping pong race. Unfortunately the Pellies (who are playing Golden State) have even more incentive to lose with the chance to go from 9th worst to 6th. The 18-19 regular season was a great ride. Let's go out with a win.

    Absolute must-win game.

    We can't allow the Warriors to finish with a better record than us. No way can we beat them in the finals w/o homecourt advantage.

    It would have been much simpler if GSW had lost last night, ugh.

    Please win tomorrow

    Game 82: Raptors @ T-Wolves, Apr 9th, 8PM EST, TSN

    This is it. Game 82. Like every Raptor fan on earth I've been longing for the playoffs for a long time, but I gotta say, this feels a bit bittersweet. I enjoyed the regular season this year. It got me through cold winter nights in January, you know, random Wednesday evenings in the vast Canadian Prairie with a beer, some wings, and my 4 year old asking about Spicy P. It gave me something to read about, write about, and talk about in between games.

    It was great to see the team grow. A team that gradually morphed into something so different from last year, learned to play together, developed chemistry and camaraderie through the ups and downs of the regular season. It was another 55+ win season, which now have become so common we kind of brush it aside, but it still something that only 3 out of 30 teams will have managed this year, when it's all said and done.

    It was fun, and there's one more to go. Ironically, this one has more meaning for us then for Minnesota. They've been out of playoff contention for a while, so their guys will be playing mostly to just end the season on W. Raps on the other hand, could clinch finals home-court with a W, and although some people think it's pretentious to think about that right now, getting out of the east is a real possibility this year, and if the opportunity to get home court advantage in the finals exists, we should not ignore it.

    Kyle Lowry
    Danny Green
    Kawhi Leonard
    Pascal Siakam
    Marc Gasol

    Tyus Jones
    Josh Okogie
    Andrew Wiggins
    Dario Saric
    Karl Anthony-Towns

    Play it safe but get the W!!
