One year ago today was locker clean-out day for the Raptors.

They were stumbling into the ACC … fresh off their 4-1 series loss to the Orlando Magic (similar to what the Spurs are doing today - after dropping 4-1 to the Mavs last night).

The Raps were licking their wounds from another 20/20 performance by Dwight Howard (21 points, 21 rebounds, 3 blocks) and Toronto was left wondering what maybe “could have been” had they been able to close out that game on a higher note - getting out-scored 18-10 in the final 5 minutes (after trailing by only 2) to eventually lose, 102-92.

Toronto led at the half and led by as many as 7 in the game, but when all was said and done, the Raptors fell flat.

TJ Ford - 6/14 FG - 14 points, 5 assists, 4 turnovers, 5 rebounds, 2 steals
Jose Calderon - 5/10 FG - 12 points, 4 assists, 3 rebounds
Chris Bosh - 7/19 FG - 16 points, 9 rebounds
Andrea Bargnani - 2/4 FG - 4 points, 1 rebound, 2 assists (15:55 minutes)
Jason Kapono - 6/13 FG - 13 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists
Carlos Delfino - 3/11 FG - 14 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 steals, 6/6 FT

Those were some of the players that stood out for the right and wrong reasons.

A long year came to an end a year ago today.

And the year that followed was (has been) just as long.

Let’s hope Summer 2009 starts the turn-around and bigger and brighter things are to come.
