Timberwolves at Raptors: Preseason Game Thread #2

Our Pups head north of the border tonight to take on the Toronto Raptors

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

The Wolves should have everyone except Chase Budinger available for tonight's monumental tilt against the Raps in Toronto, as they look to rebound from Monday night's season crippling loss to CSKA Moscow.  Tonight's game is against yet another team from outside the United States, one of the types of teams the Wolves have trouble with, the other being teams from inside the United States.

Dante Cunningham is back from his flu or whatever it was that kept him out on Monday night, and JJ Barea is back from his personal leave. I suspect we will see both of them, as well as Gorgui Dieng and Chris Johnson, as Rick Adelman is trying to get everyone playing time without playing the entire roster in any one game.

He's also talked about not playing some of the starters in back to backs in the pre-season,and with a game tomorrow night in scenic Sioux Falls, SD, it's possible he sits someone tonight.  We'll see. Or actually, we won't:

The game tips shortly after 6:00 pm Central, with no local TV coverage.  It is being televised by NBA TV Canada, however, if you are a resident of our neighbors to the north.

Our blogging buddies for the evening are at Raptors HQ.

No pics, no gifs, and no links to illegal streams.  Be excellent.
