  • Game #42: Toronto Raptors 122 - Minnesota Timberwolves 112

    It's Saturday Night!
    We've won two in a row!!
    Freddy is back!! (I think)
    The gang is back together!!!.....





    Or, better yet..




    Speaking of 1999, there was an interesting news item that came across twitter yesterday




    I think I've said before that this Championship year has been a good time for reflection as a Raps fan.
    We have always felt lesser than. Part of that has been the unarguable fact that we are a relatively new team. We had no history.
    But now, 25 years in, we do. We have a flag that will fly forever. We have a "shot" that will forever be linked to us. The top four teams in sales are the two most storied franchises in the league, a close second one..and us. Crazy times.

    So why not take a look back with a history pop quiz!

    See if you can name these members of the millennial Raptors team of 99/00

    1) Now writing childrens' books for his grandkids ________________________
    2) Won the 1991 Slam Dunk contest _________________________________
    3) Is more famous as a father ______________________________________
    4) Now GM of an NBA team ________________________________________
    5) A favorite guest on The Jump _____________________________________
    6) A not favorite guest at MSG_______________________________________
    7) A part time member of the Raptors broadcast team ____________________
    8) Still playing (!) _________________________________________________

    Your marks will be graded on a curve.

    Now on to tonight's game.
    The Wolves are winners of only 4 of there last 10.
    3 of those "wins" were against the Cavs, Nets and Warriors
    But throw that all out the window because...




    You've already done your homework with the quiz so I'll spare you having to guess the players.

    Let's just say the match can be summed up as...




    I think we know how that's going to go

    And just in case, don't forget it's still our championship all season.

    2019/20 is the year of the Purple Reign





    Go Raps

        I'll give you a ding, ding, ding for that. Dee Brown winning the dunk contest was pretty random. BTW, until I see Lowry walk on the court with two functioning knees, I'm holding my breath on the full lineup idea. Hope so

          Assuming Fred plays (and starts), I wonder if Nurse will go with an all-bench lineup of McCaw-Davis-Powell-Rondae-Ibaka.

          If he sticks with a nine man rotation, it’ll be real frustrating if Davis is the odd man out
          The name's Bond, James Bond.

            Great game thread OP.

            Should be a fun one with KAT back to provide a bit of a challenge. Timberpups have some surprisingly strong wing defenders so need Pascal and Kyle to show out.
            It's the Spicy Show! Time to cook.

                Pascal is due for a big game.

                  To be honest, with all of the celebration, in all of the haze (purple or otherwise), I don't know if I've seen it before. But given that we're in Minnesota for the game, I thought it was appropriate. If any of the kids out there don't catch the connection, let me know.
