The Toronto Raptors are in Montreal, ready to wrap their preseason with one final game — rematch from last week against the Boston Celtics.
Last time these two teams met, we were treated to one of the most entertaining preseason games you’ll ever see, a come-from-behind overtime thriller in which the very depths of the Raptors’ rotation (and Khem Birch) flipped a 19-point deficit into a win.
The Raptors haven’t exactly been lighting things up since — they’ve lost two in a row heading into tonight. With roster cuts coming as soon as tomorrow, the guys at the end of the roster know what’s at stake tonight.
And those guys should get plenty of chances to play. With Chris Boucher already on the shelf with a hamstring issue, the Raptors have also decided to reset Gary Trent Jr. and Pascal Siakam. Precious Achiuwa will start, as will Montrealer Khem Birch.
