The team’s second season in the league will begin on Nov. 18 with a home game against the expansion Greensboro Swarm. Unlike their first go-round, the 905 won’t be left on the road for literally a month at a time, or at home for a similarly long stretch, though they do start the season with a season-long six in a row in Mississauga. They don’t have a road-trip longer than five games and only draw eight back-to-backs in the 48-game slate.
Here are some other notes, per a team release:
|Games by Month|
|November: 5 (5 home, 0 road)||December: 12 (7 home, 5 road)|
|January: 10 (5 home, 5 road)||February: 8 (4 home, 4 road)|
|March: 13 (3 home, 10 road)|
|Games by Day|
|Sunday: 3 (1 home, 2 road)||Monday: 3 (3 home, 0 road)|
|Tuesday: 7 (5 home, 2 road)||Wednesday: 7 (3 home, 4 road)|
|Thursday: 8 (6 home, 2 road)||Friday: 10 (2 home, 8 road)|
|Saturday: 10 (4 home, 6 road)|
The team will also play two afternoon games at the ACC once again this year, on Dec. 20 and March 13. Those were a lot of fun last year.
Not noted on the schedule is the D-League Showcase, an annual January event that will be coming to Mississauga this year. There are no D-League games schedule from Jan 16-24, so expect the showcase to be in that stretch.Follow @raptorsrepublic
