The Toronto Raptors are at home tonight to take on the Memphis Grizzlies. Although it's a preseason game, there will be some interesting story lines to watch. Rudy Gay and Ed Davis, who were involved in a three-team trade last season, will be squaring off against their former teams, while the battle between DeMar DeRozan and Tony Allen will be one to keep an eye on. The Raptors are 5-1 so far this preseason, while the Grizzlies are 4-2. Both teams have won four games in a row.
Here are some notes for tonight's game:
- Raptors forward Steve Novak is dealing with a thumb injury that has kept him out the last few games. Novak should be good to go for the season opener on October 30 against the Boston Celtics.
- Raptors guard Terrence Ross is coming off a 27 point performance in a double-overtime win over the New York Knicks on Monday. Ross will be a key factor for the Raptors this season as he will be called upon to perform off the bench.
- Grizzlies guard Jerryd Bayless is coming off a solid outing as he scored 22 points off of 8-9 shooting. Bayless, a former Raptor, filled in for Mike Conley in the starting rotation as Conley was given the night off. Conley should be back in the lineup tonight.
Tonight's game begins at 7 pm. There are still tickets available so if you want to see the Raptors in action, head on down to the Air Canada Centre.
Let's Go Raptors!
