Toronto in turmoil
Wednesday, January 10, 2018
Coming of a back to backroad trip and no Kyle Lowry due to a back injury the Raptors locker-room is in turmoil at the moment.
Serge Ibaka went toe to toe with ex Raptor, James Johnson as both players were ejected in the third quarter when they exchanged punches during a dead-ball situation. Now with Ibaka doing this expect a suspension to happen.
Demar DeRozan and Goran Dragic exchanged words after the final buzzer. With Demar pushing Goran in the neck area. We could possibly see DeRozan face a possible suspension also for this mishap.
Thursday night marks the biggest test for these Toronto Raptors as they face LeBron James and company in the Air Canada Centre. It looks like they most likely will be shorthanded without Ibaka, DeRozan and Lowry.
Trouble times in such a key week ahead playing the cream of the crop teams.
Demar still was able to score 25 points in the affair and did not slow down by scoring a go ahead bucket with 3.1 seconds left as Miami snuck a win out.
Toronto guard Kyle Lowry is day-to-day on a return from a bone bruise on o his tailbone, expect to hopefully see a return on Saturday night if all goes good.
Quick side note, Delon Wright played well as he started in Lowry's place, registering 13 points, seven rebounds and four assists.
