Toronto Raptors Announce the First Half Schedule of Their Season
No one knows where the Toronto Raptors will finish their season, but one thing is for sure.
Tampa Bay is now Raptors country.
Move over Tom Brady because the 2019 NBA champions are coming through, set to kick off their 2020-21 regular season down in sunny Florida. On Friday, the team released its first half schedule and will kick off its season yet again against the New Orleans Pelicans, but this time at their new home, the Amalie Arena on December 23rd.
Come along for the journey. #WeTheNorth
