Raptors vs Wolves - Gameday Preview: Raps Look for Preseason Revenge

The Raptors' preseason play continues tonight in Minnesota versus the Timberwolves. Again.

John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Spo

Remember that time the Toronto Raptors played the Minnesota Timberwolves in preseason and lost?

Remember how Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic combined for 29 points and 17 rebounds, and bullied the Dinos around?

Remember how the Raps allowed the Wolves to shoot nearly 50 per cent from the field?

Oh yeah, that was four days ago.  That was awesome.

A little homage to the Chris Farley show above but yes, it's Raps and Wolves again tonight in preseason play, this time from Minny.  Unfortunately, this one doesn't look like it's going to be viewable via NBA TV Canada or Raps TV or whatever the hell they're calling it now so I'll be hunting for a stream most likely.

Or, checking box scores in the morning.

In any event, nothing much to see here so I won't spend too long previewing this matchup.  Three quick keys would be limiting turnovers, getting a more cohesive effort from the starters, and obviously MORE ACY, while on Minny's side, they'll be looking to move to 3 and 0 in preseason NBA play.  (Ok, 3 and 1.  They DID lose to Moscow in their very first game but who's counting.)
