When you bring in new coaches and dedicate the team philosophies to defense....well, yes. You expect change.

I think the Raptors actually have become better defensively (flaming inc), but they've lacked consistency.
We can put up great defensive efforts when motivated, like in the second quarter of the Bulls game or for most of the Cavs game.

We either start out or end up flat footed - and it's not just on defense it's on both ends of the floor. I think that just points to the effort/mental toughness that have plagued the Raptors for many a season.
