Video: Celtics vs Raptors Gameday Preview - Raptors Looking to Clinch Playoff Spot Tonight

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The HQ's Kayla Grey discusses tonight's match-up with the Boston Celtics in her gameday preview.

This could be it.

The Toronto Raptors could be locked into a playoff spot for the first time in 15 years with a win tonight over the Boston Celtics.

Ok, not 15 years.

But for us fans, it sure feels like it doesn't it?

The reality is that it's been a mere six seasons since Toronto's last playoff appearance, but on some levels, there doesn't seem to be that much difference between six years and fifteen.

The Dinos are coming off a win over these same Celtics on Wednesday night, and while it wasn't a pretty one, the club got the job done in the end.  Terrence Ross had 24 points, Kyle Lowry scored 23 and DeMar DeRozan added 20 for the Raptors, who have won 17 of their last 23 home games.

The HQ's Kayla Grey is back with her latest video preview, as she talks about the keys to getting a W tonight:
