Post Grange: Raptors begin to deliver some D

Not to get all too Maple Leafs, where any success suggests a parade route is in the works and any loss a moral victory, but the Raptors have to be encouraged by last nightís game, even if they continued their winless ways against Nashís Suns.

Some Things 3.10:

1. Since the back-to-back debacles in San Antonio and Dallas when it appeared the Raptors given up even the idea of playing defence the Raptors have now played three straight games with long stretches of defensive success. Last night might have been their best defensive effort of the season. The Suns had to work for the looks they did get and apart from their opening little flurry engineered by Nash they had to work for it the entire game.

2. Iím getting the sense that the Raptors are going to make a waiver claim on Pops Mensah-Bonsu who was released last week by the Houston Rockets. With Reggie Evans still struggling to have his foot heal, the talk around the arena yesterday was of the wistful variety: wouldnít it be nice to have an energizing; rebounding game-changer off the bench. The release of Quincy Douby opened up the roster spot; Pops deal isnít guaranteed. Donít be shocked if the Raptors pick him up.

Grange noticed something? lol

Good point on the Pops deal - if it isn't guaranteed, the odds of him getting picked up increase. Not sure where he'd get any minutes though? Or Why he would get any minutes.
