Hey! It's the last pretend game of the year. Shane Larkin (Jose Calderon is resting), Iman Shumpert, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Smith, and Samuel Dalembert will start. That (with Calderon) may be the opening night starting lineup.
I expect something vaguely resembling a real game. The last one was, and the Raptors are a similarly tough opponent. And, having watched these teams play at the CENTRE BELL, I expect a big, rowdy crowd. Should be fun!
Tip-off is at 7:30 on MSG. This is your game thread. This is Raptors HQ. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the thread. There will be a new thread shortly after the final buzzer, and Jonathan will once again have a recap up for you later on. Enjoy!
