Injury report

Toronto: Jose Calderon probably won’t play tonight, while Andrea Bargnani and Jerryd Bayless are out for the season.

New Jersey: Deron Williams, Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries… you get the idea.

This game is going to be virtually unwatchable, which gives me a good excuse to not actually watch it. I don’t know if Joseph is going to watch it, but he’s getting his wisdom teeth out early tomorrow morning so I’m pretty sure there won’t be a recap for this game.

All you really need to know is that these teams are tied in the standings so they will be tanking as hard as they possibly can tonight. Joseph wrote a solid post earlier today about how tonight’s games will affect lottery positioning, so you should read that.

If you’re devoted or masochistic enough to actually watch this game, I’d love to hear from you in the comments so I can find out exactly how terribad this game turned out to be.

  1. I feel this is the most important game for the raptors since the Bosh era. The sad part is that we desperately need a loss as opposed to desperately needing a win versus the Bulls to get us in the playoffs.

  2. Raptors just can’t compete tonight… with the Nets epic level of tanking. 27 points? I haven’t seen tanking this obvious since the Oden-Durant draft.

  3. What a complete waste of a season, everyone regresses and we likely miss out on any impact players through the draft.

    A complete disaster.

  4. It is hard to have any positive thoughts for this team going forward.

  5. I hope the Nets are a washout in Brooklyn. That was a hideous boxscore. Alabi got 19 boards! At least ED got some burn, right?
