3 and 1 without Rudy Gay, that's a great record. With the win against the Bulls last night the Raptors look like they could be a playoff contender, championship team , no not yet. We are playing like a contender now. Rudy Gay was the cancer on our team and now the weight is gone. We pass the ball more and we look better as a core. Demar is taking better shots, Lowry had a great game and we look better. Even our defense looks better. Besides allowing a couple points in the paint and some bad transition defense, our defense is better. Patrick Patterson is coming off the bench hot and Salmons has potential to good. With Terrence Ross looking like a all-star and Demar shooting great, we are better. It seems like were playing a faster paced game also. It spreads the floor and gives Lowry time to shoot like he did last night. A much improved Raptors team who could get on a late role soon.
