And so it begins.

The Rudy Gay era that is.

Regardless of how you feel about Bryan Colangelo's latest acquisition, there's no denying the anticipation for tonight's match-up, pitting a very good LA Clippers club against a Raptors-club that introduced its newest member only hours ago.

But wait, there's more!

Not only is Rudy Gay in tow, but rookie Jonas Valanciunas makes his return from injury after missing the last few weeks of action. Both Big Val and Gay will come off the bench with Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Landry Fields, Amir Johnson and Aaron Gray getting the start.

And wait, there's even more!

Andrea Bargnani shot around today and is likely to return soon too, but for tonight, he'll be again watching in his suit.

What all of these changes and returns add up to, no one knows, but there's no question tonight should prove to be interesting, even minus Chris Paul and Matt Barnes.

We've already broke this one down today with some help from ClipsNation, so let's get at it!

GO RAPS!!
