Ok so Friday didn't exactly work out as planned.

The Toronto Raptors, missing Jose Calderon, Andrea Bargnani, Jerryd Bayless, Leandro Barbosa, Vince Carter...you get the idea.

Yes, that club, devoid of scoring and to a large extent, NBA talent, was supposed to get crushed by the Boston Celtics, the same Celtics who had just beaten the Miami Heat and a bevy of other top teams.

However that didn't happen, and miracle worker Dwane Casey coaxed his troops to an uncanny upset victory.

So as has been the case all season, who knows what happens tonight in Atlanta. The Raptors have always had a tough time against the Hawks so at face value, this looks like another loss. However the way Casey has had his D League crew humming, this could be another case like Friday, where Toronto's opponent takes them for granted early, falls behind, and then can't do enough late to get the win.

I'm hoping for the opposite of course.

With only six games left, this is no time for heroes!

GO HAWKS!
