  • Game 75: Raptors vs Celtics, Mon Mar 28, 2022, 7:30 PM, TSN



    Starters:

    TOR:
    VanVleet
    Trent
    Anunoby
    Barnes
    Siakam

    BOS:
    Smart
    Brown
    Tatum
    G Williams
    Horford

    Team Ranks:

    TOR: 15th ORTG, 11th DRTG, 2nd OREB%, 23rd DREB%

    BOS: 10th ORTG, 1st DRTG, 13th OREB%, 18th DREB%

    Yeah, I'm going ahead and assuming Trent is back and the Raps are back to small ball. Robert Williams seems to be hurt, so I took a crack at their possible starters.

    Celtics have been ridiculous lately. As of this writing they have pulled into 1st in the East, having gone 9-1 in their last 10. Time to ruin the party.

    Raps, meanwhile, are 8-2 in their last 10 and are the 2nd hottest team in the East, having climbed to 6th and now one game back of the floundering Bulls.

    As much as I’d like to play Indy again…..are those Pacers’ stats or the guys in green? My guess is the green ones as Indy didn’t look quite like 1st in defence

    also….how ridiculous is it with nearly 90% of the season done, that we of “the no 7 footers” are second in OREB?

      A lot of must win or important games in a row.
      This to me would be a statement game, let's go!

        Celtics are on fire. Going to be tough, but a bit easier without either Horford or Williams manning the paint. Theis can still be an issue though.

          Horford and Williams will not play.

          Tatum and Brown were probable tonight. Would they play tomorrow?

            horford could have a vaccine issue.....its was for a personal problem yesterday....as a long-time celtic fan....and a person who thinks a healthy raptors team is a pikem in a series with the celtics....boston is not beating the raptors wihtout time lord in a seven game series...no....tehy will have to go wiht the slow-footed grant willaims in place of time lord....and then thad, precious and boucher wil bet the fuk out of the celtics bench....and if they try to go jaylen at teh 3...anunony will beat the fuk out of brown

              Dammit, that's twice now!

              It's BOS's stats, I just forgot to switch the team names. But hey, got us the win a couple games ago, maybe it'll do the trick this time too.

                  We need to bring that will Smith energy tonight. Smack the shit out of them, and at the end of the night, make a victory speech.

                    He was listed as questionable again.

                      I had only seen the wins but not the scores. They are not only winning but smashing really good teams, too. Most of their recent games look like they were over by the half.

                      Hopefully Toronto's defence can keep it ugly enough to stay close and close it out in the end.

                      Cavs and Bulls definitely have easier games tonight.

                        We need to protect the perimeter, Boston is living on the threes and if we force them to drive, we will reduce their effiency really well

                          Raptors started the season as one of the worst defenders allowing high 3pt% to a mildly respectable 19th place most recently LOL

                          Celtics are top 3 ….
