Rumour has it the Raptors took on the Grizzlies tonight. There was no T.V of this one but we did see some eye witness accounts that a game was played. Andrea Bargnani on his birthday was the Raptors high scorer with 21 and was an efficient 6-12 from the field. The Raptors did fall behind in this one early and based on the NBA game companion Jerryd Bayless was a big reason why.
Raptors would rally from a 36-24 scoreline not in their favour to eventually win 120-106. The Raptors had 6 players in double figures none of which were named DeMar DeRoazan as he had just 6 in twenty one minutes. It hard to honestly give much thoughts on any of this.
The one thing the boxscore does tell us it this was far from the Grizzlies best line-up. No Rudy Gay, Marc Gasol, Zach Randoplh or Micheal Conley in this game for the Grizzlies. Sometimes in the pre-season it is as much about who plays as to what the ultimate result is.
Whatever the case the Raptors for what it's worth have shown the ability to score in this pre-season and they have a 6-1 record and were just 3 points shy of being 7-0. Still a lot of things to be concerned about I would imagine for Dwane Casey and staff as they have 5 days to prepare for Pacers.
