kicking himself for being so emotionally invested in the Roller-coaster Raptors

This was definitely the best game for Wright in a Raptors uni, bar none. We saw both the good and the bad with Julian today - his surprising passing skills (I never knew he had any) and the fact that he brought energy. And, of course, a blown open layup and a whopping 0-2 performance for 0 points.

Julian can be energy in a bottle, but he's a guy you put out for 5-15 minutes a night, not consistently 20+.

Who was the best Raptor tonight in terms of +/- ? Kleiza was with a +16.

We won tonight's game with grit and hustle, no question, but you definitely need guys to put the ball in the hole as well of hustle guys.


Honestly though, all of this Julian Wright bullshit is a distraction for me - the real story of the night was Ed Davis. Just a rook, he's starting to show that skillset that had many people calling him a lock for a top-10 pick and a steal where we got him.
