Game Thread: Toronto Raptors at Utah Jazz

The Raptors are shorthanded once again, making their current road trip — stopping in Utah tonight — that much tougher.

The Toronto Raptors continue their road trip in Utah tonight in just a few minutes, and all you need to know is that the Raps will be without their Gobert stopper, OG Anunoby.

Anunoby, who “banged a hip” in practice yesterday, will be out “a while,” according to Nick Nurse; please join me in issuing an exasperated “well that’s fucking great” and pondering how the heck the Raptors are going to win a game without their best defender and one of the focal points of their offense out of the lineup.

Welp, the games must go on, and Khem Birch will start for Anunoby tonight. Here are the rest of the game details:
