The Raptors will be wearing Toronto Huskies throwbacks tonight in honor of the team that played the first NBA game ever against the Knicks in 1946.

Tonight is the Wolves' 3rd shot at their 1st winning streak this season. In John Hollinger's Playoff Odds article today, he put the Wolves "best" projected finish at 36-46, with their predicted finish at 18-64. With Kevin Love's return, though, this Wolves team looks completely reenergized after stumbling through a terrible start.

The Raptors are 4-6 in their last 10 games and site at 9-13 overall, which is good enough for 2nd place in the Atlantic. After a busy offseason (the Raptors were the only team with more new players on opening day than the Wolves), the Raptors were thinking Finals. But after a mediocre start, convincing Chris Bosh that Toronto is a place he can win has likely moved to the top of Bryan Colangelo's priorities.

See Raptors HQ for our opponents' points of view.

PS: Nate here. Don't forget to check out Maynholup's fan post and drop him a line about what you want him to ask David Kahn.
