Despite the COVID-19 pandemic and police brutality crises continuing on, Toronto Raptors basketball finally returns tomorrow night in an attempt to bring some sort of normalcy to the world. After all, this is the same squad who brought fans so much joy over the past year, despite missing a billion man-games due to injury.

To welcome back our favourite team, we created a Raptors quiz on this season prior to the suspension. Since 2020 has felt like several years compressed into one, naturally, there may be moments from this season that you’ve forgotten all about. But fear not! These multiple-choice questions should help refresh your memory and get you back into the basketball spirit.

So, here are 25 Raptors-related questions, all shuffled up. They range from easy to hard, including some based on very specific moments/events only some may remember. The answers to the quiz will be at the end of the article — you don’t need to cheat! — so keep track of your score, and make sure to let us know how you did in the comments below or on Twitter by tagging @DylanLitman, @SullySays__, and @RaptorsHQ!
