Raptors Pre-Season Tips Off

The Raptors play for the first time on their home court tonight as they finish up their back-to-back with the 76ers. The two teams battled it out last night in London, Ontatio, as the 76ers beat the Raptors 108-97. Andrea Bargnani was the high scorer for the Raptors, putting up 22 points. Last night gave Raptor fans the opportunity to see seven new Raptor players make their debut, the most hyped up being DeMar DeRozan. DeRozan put up 9 points on 3-7 shooting, to go along with 3 assists and 4 rebounds.

The big story of last nights game was the "poor performance" of Jose Calderon, as he comitted 4 turnovers, and his poor defense was yet again exposed. But quite frankly, is this really big news? It's the first pre-season game, and it's the first time Jose has played competitively since April.

Antoine Wright, Hedo Turkoglu, and Chris Bosh weren't with the team.
