Terrence Ross is back in the dunk contest.
DeMar DeRozan is in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge.
And Jonas Valanciunas is in the Sophomore-Rookie Game.
Add in the fact that DeMar DeRozan was already voted in as a reserve All-Star and it's been a week full of accolades for the Toronto Raptors.
Which as we saw on Wednesday night versus the Sacramento Kings, may have gone to their collective heads. The Raps slept-walked through the first three quarters before finally trying to make a game of it late in the final period. As we know, it was too little, too late, and the club suffered an unnecessary loss.
Tonight presents a similar challenge both in terms of Toronto dealing with a superior offensive team, however one they can afford to sleep on, even less than the predecessor.
