Toronto Raptors vs Boston Celtics

March 26, 2014

Sportsnet One - 7:30 PM EST

Oh to be prophetic.

Prior to last night's liveblog I extolled upon the dangers of this week's slew of "lesser" opponents, arguing that the Toronto Raptors could be headed for one big "Trap Week."

Sure enough, the team played down to the level of their first opponent on said schedule, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and despite a huge second-half comeback, fell short, losing 102 to 100.

Tonight is more of the same as the Dinos are in Boston to take on the Celtics. The C's sport a lowly 23 and 47 record, but have Rajon Rondo back, have already beaten Toronto this season oh and...the Raptors haven't won IN Boston since January 23, 2008!!!!

Add on the pressure of keeping their position in the East and this is no doubt a must-win game, and one that the club will need to approach must better than last night's contest.
