Outside of opening night, this is the game I have been most excited for this season thus far.
I rarely get a chance to watch Love and have never watched Rubio outside of highlights and international play. They have a lot of young talent and seeing what Adelman does with them will be very interesting. I have said since the CP3 trade that the Minny pick might not be such a prize - I'm sure it will still be lottery but I would be shocked if it was top 8.
This will be another gut check test for Toronto after losing to NJ. I have been doing my best to wipe PHI from my memory - to no avail. It is time for guys like DD, ED, and Barbo to bring it.
I have had a theory of Bargnani just boxing out his man and not letting him get the ball while another teammate gets the ball is enough to condone for his mediocre (yet improved) rebound numbers this year. Matching up with Kevin Love will be a great way to test this theory and I hope Casey sticks Bargnani on Love.
