Raptors FINAL: Real Madrid 95 - Toronto Raptors 102

First game of the pre-season, might as well fire up a thread.




Notes
- Out: Jonas Valanciunas
- Out: Kyle Lowry (precautionary: lower leg)



Real Madrid, players to watch:

Nikola Mirotic: leading scorer (20.0 ppg) and rebounder (6.5 rpg) for Real Madrid

Rudy Fernandez: provided many highlights during his time in the NBA. Very streaky offensive player.

Sergio Lull: Some may remember him from the Spain-USA Olympics Finals. He turned some heads with his strong play that game.

How serious is Lowry's injury? Anything to be concerned about or just a one time thing?

I don't think so.

Lowry has been held out of the last couple of practices due to a leg injury.

"I'd much rather he be 100 per cent than be sore, then pull something or whatever," Casey said.
Valanciunas, Lowry to miss exhibition opener - sportsnet.ca

But looks like no Lowry for sure.

I mentioned this in the Halifax training camp thread, but when I got to meet him after the game he said it was nothing serious at all, and just didn't want to go out and potentially make it worse before the season starts.

Gotta say, Lowry better be healthy this season or we're fucked.

Very disapointing start to pre-season. So essentially, tonight we'll be watching the same team as last season aside from Fields and Ross (a bench player)? Yippy

all of us Raptor fans miss basketball so are eager as hell to dive into it head first asap. But calm your balls Jeff, Casey can't afford to risk their health. Im very excited to finally see Raps playing again no matter with JV and Lowry or without them

I still want to see Fields and Ross but i'm anxious to watch Lowry. Oh well, the fact that i can watch a game is great imo.
