Wolves at Raptors (In Ottawa)
6:00 pm CDT
The Wolves and Raptors meet for the 2nd time in a row tonight when they face off in Ottawa. The Wolves lost Monday's contest 112-105 when Kyle Lowry went off for 40 points. The Wolves are still looking for their first preseason win after three straight defeats that have been consistent for their terrible defensive displays.
Hopefully things will start to look better tonight, though it appears that Ricky Rubio still won't play, though he's expected to over the weekend.
Word has it that Tayshaun Prince is going to start on the wing along with Andrew Wiggins tonight as Sam Mitchell plays around with lineups. That's a somewhat surprising choice even experimentally, as it seems unlikely that Prince is going to get a ton of minutes during the regular season, but interesting given Zach LaVine's struggles so far in preseason.
At any rate, this is an early tip from the Eastern time zone, but let me suggest using the first half of this game as an appetizer for the Lynx-Fever game five (ESPN2) that begins at 7:00 pm CDT and will determine the WNBA champion.
At any rate, if you are watching the Wolves, chat about it here.
