Game Thread: Toronto Raptors vs. Dallas Mavericks

The Raptors are back home, hosting Luke Dončić and the Mavericks

Dallas Mavericks v Toronto Raptors

Last night sure was a lot of fun, right? The Toronto Raptors came out a bit ragged, but then righted the ship and completely blew the doors off the Boston Celtics with defense and a helter-skelter transition game. It was exactly the type of performance we thought they were capable of.

The real question, of course, is whether they can do that consistently — and we won’t have to wait long to find out! The Raptors are playing their first back-to-back, and we’ll see if those young legs can handle a road-home B2B.

One thing we ‘re all looking out for: Seeing OG Anunoby get his offense on track. He’s missed just about every shot he’s takin through two games (7-for-35), and has looked to be pressing the issue at times.

Let’s see what he and his teammates can do against the Dallas Mavericks tonight!
