The title to this one might be a bit misleading. After all, the Raptors, as I mentioned in my preview this morning, have been quite good since trading Rudy Gay to tonight's opponent, the Sacramento Kings. They probably don't want revenge.

And the Kings?

Well, again, as I discussed this morning, haven't had the same results as Toronto post-trade, but haven't been completely horrific either. So it's hard to say they want revenge either.

But what about Rudy?

I wonder.

Here's Mr. Gay, who likely saw himself as the hero upon arrival in Toronto nearly a year ago to the day, cast out from TO and reviled as a ball-hogging chucker, and now looking to get his career back on track. And twice the club who has dealt him has been much better in his wake.

So perhaps Rudy does indeed have this one circled on the calendar, and tonight we'll see just how hungry the former UCONN star is for revenge.
