Similar to a child’s excitement prior to christmas morning, Torontoist will be tossing and turning in it’s bed tonight. The terrible sleep will be credited to the anticipation of Vince Carter‘s return to the ACC tomorrow evening. With his New Jersey Nets only a game and a half back of the Philadlelpia 76ers for the Eastern Conference’s eighth and final playoff spot, Vince’s long awaited return to Toronto could be the game that decides his team’s fate.
If the 32-46 Toronto Raptors manage to beat the Nets Friday night, then their disgraceful season will have some vindicaton, as Toronto fans will bear witness to #15 leaving in shame once again.
In case you need a reminder of why you don’t like him – here you go. After consistently giving up halfway through his recent Raptor seasons, Vince has elevated his game for the Nets playoff push. He is averaging over twenty-nine points in his past five games.
