Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia 76ers
January 7, 2012
TSN2 - 8:00 PM EST

Let's pretend last night's game didn't happen ok?

It was simply a "lock-out loss" right?

We'll see tonight as the Raps take on the 4 and 2 Philadelphia 76ers.

Philly's looked good so far this year, their only losses coming to Portland and Utah as they started their season on a west coast road trip. Players like Jrue Holiday and Andre Iguodala have been their usual impact selves, but the real surprise has been Spencer Hawes. Hawes is shooting a ridiculous 65 per cent from the field, grabbing 12 rebounds a match, and is sporting one of the league's best PER's at 25.15!

Add in guys like Lou Williams, Thad Young and Evan Turner, and perhaps an appearance by Old Man Brand, and there's no question that the Raps are in for a real tough test tonight, especially coming off of last night's loss.

So again, we'll see how this one transpires...
