The #Raptors905 (I think I’m supposed to use a hashtag) announced their regular season schedule. Here’s an excerpt from the release:
The 50-game schedule will be comprised of 24 home games, 24 road contests and two games as part of the 12th annual NBA D-League Showcase. The Santa Cruz Warriors will host the Showcase for the second consecutive season. The 19-game schedule will run over five days from January 6-10.
Raptors 905 will play 22-of-24 home games at Hershey Centre in Mississauga, Ontario. The team will also play two games at Air Canada Centre on Friday, December 11 versus Maine and Monday, March 14 against Fort Wayne. Both games will precede a Raptors home game.
November and December combined feature 12 of 18 games at home. Conversely, the team will be on the road for 15 of 19 contests in January and February. The club will end the season with eight of its final 11 games at home.
For tickets, you have to email [email protected], and he’ll meet you in a dark alley near Church/Queen, where you’ll have to hand him some money and he’ll slip you the tickets in your back pocket. No receipt will be provided and remember that this transaction never happened.
