1-7

That record up there, it looks bad doesn't it? Yeah, I think so too.

Unfortunately, reaching that lowly 1-7 mark will be very tough to avoid for the Raptors. Just one day after a heart-wrenching loss to the Jazz, the Raptors are back at it tonight in Indiana, looking to get their second win of the season.

The Raptors top 3 offensive players; Calderon, DeRozan and Bargnani are all coming off a game where they played 49+ minutes, and will be running seriously low on energy during tonight's matchup.

What about the rest of the team? Well, Lowry, Anderson and Fields are still out due to injury. The Raptors will be looking for a repeat performance from Kleiza, and the bench will be heavily relied upon. Expect a lot of Jon Lucas, Terrence Ross and JV.

The odds are against a win on this Tuesday evening, but you have to admit that a 2-6 record would be much more comforting.
