We made, everyone! The preseason is over, and regular season basketball returns to Toronto — in about 30 minutes! Hopefully you’re all caught up on Mitch’s preview of today’s game, and you’ve made your way through all of our player previews and are as ready to go as your Toronto Raptors!

In terms of last-minute updates, Nick Nurse confirmed pre-game that Chris Boucher is ready to go and will play (much as Boucher himself hinted earlier).

It’s going be a scene in Scotiabank Arena! And we’re thrilled to have you along with us for another season of Raptors action. Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to sound off in the comments with your thoughts and opinions on tonight’s action.

Let’s go!
