New York Knicks vs Toronto Raptors

April 13, 2014

TSN - 3:30 PM EST

Despite the fact that the Toronto Raptors are playing the Detroit Pistons this afternoon, this is an interesting game for me.

For one, I'm curious to see how the team responds after a not-so-hot display of basketball on Friday night against the New York Knicks.

Two, I'm wondering who plays and who sits.

The Dinos have wrapped up the Atlantic Division title, so on one hand don't have as much to play for. But on another, seeding is still very much open in the East so winning this game, as well a the final two on the schedule, could go a long way in determining who Toronto ends up playing in the first round of the Dance.

As well, the Pistons seem secure with the eighth-worst record in the league, which would allow them to keep their lottery pick, so perhaps they decide to rest a bunch of their top guys as well.

Regardless of who plays for either team, here's to Toronto putting on a top-notch defensive display, something they haven't done for an entire game in quite some time.

GO RAPS!
