Raptors 2012-13 schedule
The Raptors, with three rookies and other new faces, will kick off season No. 18 on Halloween at the ACC against the Indiana Pacers and will play in Brooklyn for the first time on Nov. 3 against the Nets at the new Barclays Center.
The Sunday matinees are back after there was only one last season. This time, Toronto will play eight such contests and there even are a couple of Saturday night home dates, the first time that has happened since 2000-01, possibly because of an expected NHL lockout.
Home fans will get a chance to see star-laden Oklahoma City for the first time in two seasons on Jan. 6, while Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant and Co. come to town with the Lakers on Jan. 20.
