Gameday: Raptors-Wizards

Time to step up, RuPaul

Bad news: It’s gameday. Fresh off a pounding at the hands of the Hawks, the Raptors are in Washington to face a Wizards squad that beat them at the ACC Tuesday and followed it with a 104-102 home win over Milwaukee on Wednesday. For the best preview in the biz and to find out more about how the Raps have ruined our lives the past month, check in at Raptors Republic.

Washington certainly comes in to this one in better shape than they did in Toronto Tuesday, which doesn’t bode well for our boys. Then again, nothing bodes well for our boys these days. Gilbert Arenas picked up where he left off against Toronto on Wednesday with 24 and nine assists against the Bucks, carrying the load with Caron Butler and Antawn Jamison having off-nights. Don’t count on that happening again tonight against our ferocious D. If the Raps can hold these guys under 180, they might have a shot.

As for the Raptors, it’ll be interesting to see how they respond after coughing up 146 to Atlanta on Wednesday. Given the way they’ve responded to other embarrassing losses thus far, I’m not counting on much. Here it is though, CB — if there’s a time to prove you’re a leader in this league, it’s now. Even though you’re likely out the door first chance you get, it’ll go a ways in proving yourself to the next team that decides to waste its time on you.

This one gets underway at seven, and I’m sure hoping there’s another game on at the same time.
