The Raptors were the beneficiaries of of two offensive turnovers for the Celtics in the last 30 seconds and they couldn't erase their 1-point deficit. DeRozan missed a mid-range jumper to win it at the buzzer. Lowry and Miles were both on fire from deep and Ibaka/Jonas did a great job on the pick n pop with Horford, but the Celtics just had too many guys step up when it mattered most. Rozier drew a 4-point play to end the first half when the Raptors were starting to pull away, and then he hit another 3 at the 3rd quarter buzzer when the Raptors had fought back from 8 down. At the end of the day though, this was Brad Stevens out-coaching Dwayne Casey.

Encore was Nogueira remotely useful? My cousin said he's average in his own end but brutal in ball movement during the Raptors attack

He's a solid defender and a good rim protector, but he's virtually useless in the offensive zone. He's a decent passer, but he doesn't really have any type of offensive game besides easy put backs. When he's paired up with Ibaka, that's a pretty lethal post defending combo. He did a great job on Horford, who I don't believe took a single outside shot. I think he's useful, but I don't think he will get a whole lot better to be honest. Might be a good energy guy.

3rd in the East right now at 15-7. Boston and Cleveland ahead of them and both have gone on long win streaks which Toronto hasn't yet. Perhaps they are in the midst of one now hopefully. Have won 4 in a row, and should be favoured in most if not all of there next 10 games.

tied with Cleveland (with a better W%)...1 game behind Boston.

9-1 in their last 10.


only Warriors, Boston, and Houston have been better.

The Raps are really exceeding expectations this year. Instead of a decline, their new style of play and improvement from their young players has this looking like the best Raptors team ever.

I have to give the organization credit for drafting late and developing some very solid talent.
