I didn’t actually get to see any of today’s intra-squad scrimmage and I can assure you that virtually nothing that happened in said game mattered, but nonetheless, here’s a boxscore from the exhibition contest for those interested:
— Toronto Raptors (@Raptors) October 5, 2013
Everything looks pretty standard for an early October scrimmage, but yes, that is a 6-for-25 shooting line you see from Rudy Gay (improved vision!). You’ll also notice that Team Black took this one in a cake walk, that DeMar DeRozan shot 3-of-4 from behind the arc, and that Tyler Hansbrough didn’t take part (left hamstring strain).
The Raptors open their pre-season schedule in Boston on Monday night (7:30 p.m. ET tip), which should give us something a little more tangible to discuss.
On a final note, Vegas has pegged Toronto’s win total over/under at 36.5, so if you believe this roster can just go 37-45, lay a little on that.
I’ll post my game-by-game and overall season prediction in a few weeks as usual, but barring a major injury or Masai Ujiri stripping this team down, 37 wins seems attainable.
