We’ve got a light Thursday night in the NBA, which is somewhat refreshing after a busy week. The big matchup on the slate is off the national broadcast schedule on TNT. We’ve got a rematch of last season’s Eastern Conference second-round matchup between the Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors. Both teams have underperformed by their standards so far this season. The Celtics have really been floundering having lost five of their past seven games, while the Raptors are trending in the other direction, winners of five of the past six. With not many injuries to follow, we may have a quiet night on the lineup front. Let’s take a look.
