Toronto trailed by 16 points but rallied to beat the Knicks, 106-104, on Thursday night. It was the Raptors' fourth straight win and they were behind by at least 10 points in each game. They're the first NBA team to win four consecutive games despite trailing by 10 or more points in each game since the Suns did that in November 2002

Wow - I had no idea they are setting that kind of a standard. The funny thing is that it never felt like they were going to lose any of those games when they got down early. The worst I felt was when LA got a lead late off of some lucky bounces.

The resilience that was acquired through the first part of the season might be paying some dividends now. Orlando went through a similar development a couple years back, and it helped them through two postseasons. Knowing how to win tough games is big.

This can't continue to be a pattern. And if we did this in the playoffs we'd be done in 4 games.

Raptors should start off better, if they dont they are going to be wildhorse tired before the season is even over
Gotta get some easy ones to cut our players some slack

I agree that it is not ideal for them to continue this pattern, but some extra experience in grinding out close games is not a bad thing come playoff time.

Its such a contrast from earlier this year and last year when they would get down early, make a run to get back in the game and come up short night after night. Feels good to consistently being on the winning end of some close games.

I said it last night when NY was up 5 with less then 2 minutes left, previous teams and this team earlier in the season would have folded like a cheap tent.

Its nice to see them be the ones who comeback instead of the ones blowing a Double digit lead. Their defensive instensity has been picking up later in the games and the comebacks are a direct result of some good D. Also the team is really clicking rite now.

It's nice to see this but I'd rahter have the lead and build around that, rather then wasting energy trying to come back cuz seriously this ain't gonna happen everytime

I felt like that during both of these last 2 games... and it's definitely a great feeling.

Our bench is so strong now too that they REALLY give other teams some problems when they come in.
