Game Day Thread: Raptors vs. 76ers -Alan Anderson is the Answer


April 4, 2012

Sportsnet - 7:00 PM EST

So last night didn't work out so well.

Not only did the Toronto Raptors barely beat the Charlotte Bobcats but...yeah, they beat the Bobcats. Now, Toronto suddenly has the seventh-worst winning percentage in the league and another win would drop them potentially as high as ninth-worst.

That's not good when you're talking ping pong balls and Anthony Davis.

So bring on the Philadelphia 76ers tonight. Philly on paper looks to be a sure loss the only problem is the 76ers haven't exactly been dominant of late. They've lost seven of their last 11 and have now dropped into seventh place in the East. They may get Andre Iguodala back tonight, which should help their fortunes, but let's just say it's not as if Toronto is playing OKC tonight. Even with Philly having won the last three matches against the Dinos, this Raptors' team has been surprisingly (and in some ways, frustratingly) resilient and even with Alan Anderson getting the starting nod for James Johnson, I've got a bad feeling this one's going to come down to the wire.

Just in case though...

Go 76ers!
