This could very well be the Raptors’ last summer league game, and, as a result, the rest of the HQ staff would very much like for them to lose.
This creates a clear heroes vs. villains situation for the Raptors’ upcoming knockout round game against the Hornets. The villains are absolutely not the Summer League Hornets, as the Hornets feature cool players like Miles Bridges, Malik Monk and Willy Hernangomez. No, the villains are my jerk-head colleagues.
My colleagues would root for rad dudes like Giddy Potts, Chris Boucher and Rawle Alkins to fail all so that they won’t have to dedicate half-an-hour of their day to writing a 700 word game recap. Truly shameful.
The villains will unfortunately begin with the upper-hand. OG Anunoby will not be available tonight, as the Raptors will take the precaution of resting him.
OG Anunoby is sitting out for rest today. Alfonzo McKinnie draws back in as a starter.— Blake Murphy (@BlakeMurphyODC) July 14, 2018
Here’s the full preview, written by the utterly despicable Joel Stephens, now let’s hope the Raps can stick it to those nerds.
