The Toronto Raptors set a new franchise record with their 49th win beating the team who’ve been their nemesis for years. Now they’ll await the Chicago vs Atlanta result for their seeding and opponent. BRING ON THE POST SEASON
While 50 wins is now out of the question, the Raptors can still break the franchise record for wins and leapfrog the Chicago Bulls for the 3rd seed in the East with a win tonight against the Charlotte Hornets, who have had the Raptors’ number lately.
Rockets soar into town having just unseeded Memphis as Southwest Division leaders and second seed in the West. It’s the last team above .500 Raptors face this season and an opportunity for them to perform well and build their confidence.
