This slide show will be a part of a series taking a look at the Raptors division and their opponents, along with the advantages or disadvantages each teams possess. Besides looking at the players, benches, and scheduling differences, the always underrated intangibles will also be analyzed.
Toronto Raptors certainly have re-made the roster and hopefully the third time will be the charm for Canada’s only respectable sports franchise. However, the Road to an Atlantic Division title will have to go through Boston. The question remains if the Raptors can outlast the former Champs
The Boston Celtics won the NBA Championship in 2008 however it’s the '09-'10 season and things have changed with some strong additions in Marquis Daniels and Rasheed Wallace, the Celtics have attempted to remake their roster slightly still focusing on extending the small window of opportunity surrounding the ‘Big Three.’
The Raptors and Celtics will meet on Nov. 27 in Boston for their first match up, followed by games on Jan. 2 (in Boston), January 10th (in Toronto) and Apr. 7 (in Toronto).
I predict the Raptors will go 2-2 against the Celtics this year. Let’s look at how these teams match up.
