The Raptors look to bounce back from Kyrie Irving’s dagger when they host the surprising Warriors at the ACC.

Start time: 7:00 PM ET

Channel: TSN

Probable starting lineups

Toronto: Jose Calderon, DeMar DeRozan, Landry Fields, Ed Davis, Amir Johnson

Golden State: Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, David Lee, Festus Ezeli

Injury report

Toronto: Andrea Bargnani and Jonas Valanciunas are out, Kyle Lowry is a game-time decision with back spasms, Linas Kleiza and Mickael Pietrus are questionable

Golden State: Brandon Rush is out, Klay Thompson is questionable and Andrew Bogut is expected to make his unlimited return to the lineup

Random Thoughts:

  • The Warriors are on pace to flirt with a 50-win season and have beaten some top tier teams along the way so far in their surprising start to the 2012-13 campaign. They’ve done it all without any real contributions from Andrew Bogut, so if the big man can even approach his maximum capabilities at centre, Golden State might actually be capable of making some noise come April.
  • David Lee, who I often referred to as an “empty numbers” guy prior to this season, is having a great year for the Warriors, but All Star selection be damned, Stephen Curry is still the heart and soul of this team, and I fully expect him to have a big night in his dad’s old stomping grounds. Curry hasn’t played in Toronto in over two years, but in his only two previous games at the ACC, he’s averaged 31.5 points and eight assists on 50 per cent shooting, including 7-of-15 from deep.
  • Tonight’s contest marks the beginning of a brutal week for the Raptors schedule-wise. Sure, three of four games are at home, but the four games are against the Warriors, Hawks, Clippers and Heat. If they find a way to win more than a game this week, I’ll be pleasantly stunned.

  1. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser
    compatibility issues? A number of my blog readers have complained about my
    blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
    Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

  2. What’s up colleagues, its great paragraph regarding tutoringand entirely defined, keep it up all the time.

  3. Another important factor that came to the meeting that he
    alluded to news earlier during the show. The content
    is individually liberal or individually conservative,
    but taken together, the site’s prominent national presence will include webinars as well as its performance in handling grass clippings such as bagging, mulching,
    and side-discharging. The ACR advises that CAT scans cause one percent of
    their turnover to charities Pesticide Action Network UK and Cornwall Wildlife Trust.

  4. There is a special aspect in Facebook called office networks.
    There will always be some intrusions that allow the actual passwords to become hacked.
    Instead of listing those DVDs for sale individually, sell them together in
    one lot.
