Calderon's cable woes

Still waiting for some answers from TSN, Rogers or Raptors' parent company MLSEL regarding all those games winding up on TSN2, a channel few in the Greater Toronto Area have access to?

You can get in line with Jose Calderon.

Seems the Raptors point guard, who remained in Toronto to rehab his strained hamstring while his teammates were playing in Milwaukee and Washington earlier this week, was in the same boat.

Calderon had no problem seeing the Milwaukee game, which was telecasted on Raptors TV on Monday night, but had some issues Wednesday when it came to the game in Washington, which was only available on TSN2.

Knowing he didn't have that channel in his cable package, Calderon had his wife call his local cable provider and ask that it be added -- only to be told that was impossible.

Instead, he bundled up and headed to the Air Canada Centre where he was able to see it on the stadium's expanded cable setup.

The Washington game was the seventh game this year that most of the GTA has not been able to watch. Rogers and TSN have been unable to come to an agreement that would see TSN2 available on Rogers cable. Another 18 of the remaining 46 Raptors regular-season games will be carried on TSN2.

Canada Basketball night

The Raptors will hold their fourth Canada Basketball Night during tonight's game against Memphis at the Air Canada Centre. The first 5,000 fans entering the game at Gate 1 will receive a free giveaway. Collection boxes also will be set up to help raise funds for youth through the Canadian Basketball Foundation.

A handful of Canadian Basketball Hall of Fame members also will be on hand including, of course, Raptors head coach Jay Triano.
