The Toronto Raptors begin their 20th anniversary season on Wednesday and, for the first time in recent memory, kick off a year with optimism.
Playoff expectations are at an all-time high as the team hopes to improve on its first-round showing last season and potentially move into the upper echelon of the Eastern Conference — and, perhaps, win the championship.
With last year’s core returning and a bolstered second unit, Toronto appears to be poised for a solid run.
The team takes on the Atlanta Hawks at the Air Canada Centre at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
