Raptors 905 Home Opener Tonight in Mississauga

Published November 18, 2016 at 5:09 pm


The countdown to the NBA D-League regular season is nearly over! Tonight the Raptors 905 will take to the Hershey Centre in Mississauga for their season opener against the Greensboro Swarm.

The 905 will showcase some of Toronto’s up and coming stars like centre Bruno Caboclo (Brazil) and guard Fred Van Vleet (Rockford, Ill.), who were assigned to the 905 late Wednesday.

Tip-off is at 7:30 p.m. against the newly created Swarm, an affiliate of the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets. The team was officially dubbed the Swarm in July and recently revealed their mascot on Nov. 6.

The home opener will be a chance to watch a brand new team and to see how the 905 will improve on their inaugural 23-27 record.

The game will be broadcasted on YouTube and Facebook Live, so you can check it out at home if you can’t make it to the Hershey Centre.
