Starting 5: Preview of Raptors and Pacer With Mike Wells Pacers Beat Reporter

We had a chance to catch up with Mike Wells the beat reporter for many year for the Indy Star about the opening night match-up with Pacers coming to town. They have made it out and are on route to Toronto for the game tomorrow. Something some might have been concerned about with all the bad weather. Thoughts and prayers go out to all those people impacted by hurricane Sandy on the east coast of the U.S.

We chat about Roy Hibbert the short lived Raptor part of the trade with the Pacers that involved J.O and T.J Ford among others. The young and rising star in Paul George that will likely match up with DeMar DeRozan. In addition the future of Danny Granger and his thoughts on this match-up tomorrow night from the Pacers point of view.

Really want to thank Mike who came through for us despite having his flight moved up. We hope to chat with him in the future and have a longer discussion in the future. We are closing in on the home opener and it is exciting. Make no mistake though the Pacers are not coming here expecting to lose. Also Mike in his blog does not have the Raptors making the post-season. He has that in his blog linked above did not get a chance to talk with him about that as he had to catch a flight.

Also, as mentioned, the Starting 5 is now brought to you by the good folks at St Louis Wings, 3 locations to catch all Raptors games home and away. We loved them long before they were a sponsor for us. You can catch the game with full sound up for all 82 Raptors games at 3 great locations to serve you on 595 Bay St (Atrium) , 528 Young St (At College St)  and Fairview Mall location. A great place with friendly staff and give you that feeling of being at the game. So, if you can't get a seat for tomorrow's home opener you might want to head on over there for a good time and good food. We are having are 5th anniversary Party there on November the 23rd at the Bay St Location. Hope to see you come out that night for some fun and join us to watch the Raptors take on the Pistons on the road.
