It was a game that meant nothing. Both the Raptors and Bucks were locked into their seeding and the lineups showed. Both teams rested the majority of their regular starters and it looked more like a pre-season game than game 82 on the NBA schedule.
For the Raptors, it’s nice to hear into a play-in game against the Bulls on a win. The game allowed Gary Trent and some others to get a run in. The Bucks will have to sit back and wait, not knowing if they will play the Heat, Hawks, Bulls or Raptors in the first round. The question is, will it matter.
Fluent Finale: What happens next for the Raptors is the question. Will Nurse be the head coach next year. Reports are win, loss or draw he will be replaced. Rumoured destination is Houston, who didn’t pick up Coach Silas’ option year. More to come on that.
Now you’re more fluent!
