Arrow Paul Jones: Where's the improvement?

Quote:
The losses are starting to mount for the Raptors and it's not the record that is the concern.

There are still 64 games left and the season is just a month old.

The issue in this corner is the phrase I am not hearing consistently coming from the team and that's the phrase: "we're getting better."

As I reflect back to the 2006-07 season, the best one in Bryan Colangelo's tenure as the general manager in Toronto, when that team was absorbing losses early in the season thanks to a schedule just as difficult as the current agenda that the 2009-10 Raptors are enduring, they were always able to use that one phrase.

Folks may not have believed what they were hearing, but as it turned out, in the end, all connected with the team were correct in their assessment.

Coincidentally, that team had the exact same record as the current squad and was 7-14 at the quarter pole.

That could be the exact same posting for this team as we approach the first turn, if they don't find a way to win one of its next three games. But with that team you always heard, "we're getting better."

Over the last three games, it has been the team's strength, its offense, that has let it down. The defense, we'll get to that in a minute, but in each of the last three losses the games have been close at halftime (down six to Charlotte, up one over Boston and down one to Phoenix).

that's why i'd like to think that these last few offensive showings have been flukes. It's pretty much the only thing that keeping any hope i have hanging by a thread.
