Toronto Raptors vs Boston Celtics

January 15, 2014

Sportsnet One - 7:30 PM EST

The terms "must-win," and "easy match-up" get thrown around a lot regarding upcoming games on a team's schedule.

Tonight's contest versus the Boston Celtics would likely be an example of both.

If you haven't heard the news from earlier today, the Celtics traded their starting point guard, Jordan Crawford, as well as MarShon Brooks, to the Golden State Warriors as part of a three-team deal.

That leaves an already struggling Celtics squad (they've lost nine straight) with even less options this evening versus Toronto, in what should be a dominant Raptors' win. While I'm a big fan of this scrappy Boston squad, as my compatriot Zach Salzmann noted in his preview earlier today, the Celts just don't currently have the talent to get the job done so no excuses, this needs to be a Dinos win.
