Celtics, Raptors Square Off Tonight In A Matchup Of Eastern Conference Favorites

posted in: Celtics 0

Tonight the Celtics will host the Raptors as two of the Eastern Conference preseason favorites clash.  The Raptors stand on top of the conference at 12-3 and have looked strong in incorporating star forward Kawhi Leonard seamlessly.  The Celtics are still finding their way at 8-6 as they try to find cohesion on probably the deepest roster in the NBA.  In particular the starting five has struggled as Gordon Hayward continues to ease his way back from injury and young wings Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown have had trouble with growing pains amidst a desire to take on an expanded role in a talent laden group.  The Celts are coming off a home thrashing of the Bulls on Wednesday night and hopefully they can ride that high into this game which will undoubtedly be a more difficult challenge.  The Raptors won the first matchup of the year between the squads so expect the green to be out for revenge.
