Should do. They fixed his vision in the off season.

If we keep playing like this we will have the division on lock. Nets lose Lopez and have old broken down players, Philly going ultimate tank mode, Boston will be getting back into tank mode as they have lost their last 4-5 games, and the Knicks, well they are just a mess and play like shit every game. Raptors will be 4th in the East at the end of the season. I'm calling it right now.

I agree. I absolutely shit on him when the trade was made, but I have to give the guy credit, he is playing great defense for us and has really helped out.

Even more amazing... that was OKC's first home loss of the season (13-0 before this).

And DAL was 11-2 before the game against us.


GIANT KILLERS!!!

Honestly though, I want to see us trade the entire team besides Amir and Jonas. I hope we get good value back for Derozan, because I still don't think he can fit on a winning team with his offensive arsenal and lack of defensive anything.

If the team keeps winning, I don't think MU will trade him. Even though I was against it, I'd say he might even resign him.

C'mon sour puss.. admit it.... you had to have enjoyed these last 2 games. Beating 2 WC playoff teams on the ROAD.

Crack a smile for a few days and save the tanking for 2014!

Yup. My thoughts exactly. Now, can they do the unthinkable and beat an indestructible SAS team, in SAS?

Yeah it's especially on D that he has impressed me, it's almost weird that we have a consistent, pretty good perimeter defender and plus he looks more engaged facially or maybe that's just me

They take about 10-20 minutes to get set up.

The question is do you think he can resign him? Maybe he wants out regardless

If you cant see that we're just repeating every other year in recent Raptors history than you're blinded. This isn't a +.500 team over 82 games. This isn't a playoff team. You can enjoy the wins, and it's nice to get hard fought wins like this, but in the grand scheme of things, if it's the difference between a top 3 pick and an 11th pick in a stacked draft, was this win really worth it?

I bet you were celebrating like a mad man when Uzoh had a triple double, and Big Alabi had 20 rebounds to essentially screw us out of getting a 5-7 range pick.

I'm tired of mediocrity, and as nice as these wins are, we're going to end up going through the same yearly cycle and nothing good coming out of it.

The best case scenario for you non tankers is a 1st round playoff loss, losing Lowry, and getting a mid round pick. Does that sound good to you?
