Boston Celtics vs Toronto Raptors

March 28, 2014

Sportsnet One - 7:00 PM EST

Everyone excited for some NBA PLAYOFF ACTION???

Well, not tonight considering the Toronto Raptors' opponent is a 23 and 48 Boston Celtics squad, but a win over the C's tonight puts the Dinos in a position we haven't seen in quite some time.

The NBA playoffs.

Yes, with a win over the Celtics this evening the Raps guarantee a spot in next month's Big Dance so it would be nice to get this W and move on. After an upcoming match-up with the Orlando Magic, things get quite a bit trickier with matches against the Miami Heat, Houston Rockets and Indiana Pacers. So best to wrap this up now instead of dragging the narrative out.

There's also the New York Knicks angle as if they lose to the Phoenix Suns, the Dinos are in regardless of the outcome of this match vs the Celtics.

But...let's just get the W ok?
