NBA Lockout Day 76



November 21, 1999. An early regular season encounter between the Toronto Raptors and Los Angeles Lakers. A vintage Vince Carter and Shaquille O'Neal showdown. It's no coincidence that I would post an entire game that had Glen Rice pouring in 29 points considering he's in the news again. A lot of former Orlando Magic men on that court.

That was a Raptors franchise on the rise at the time, with Tracy McGrady and Doug Christie providing some solid support on both ends of the court. Very nice mix of youth of veterans. No Kobe for this one, which is a big reason why the Lakers would lose this home game. Derek Fisher hair alert! This is the season O'Neal and his team finally broke through to begin their championship dynasty.
