Last time these two teams faced off we thought Lowry/Fields/Anderson's injuries were no big deal, and not showing up for a quarter was just a 'one time thing' for the Raptors.
Ohh those were the days.
Despite the injuries and their three quarter style of basketball, the Raptors have managed two wins since that last match up, and are sitting at a not-so-bad 3-7 . Considering just last week they were 1-6, I'm delighted with that 3-7 record.
The schedule has been very hard on the Raptors thus far, and it doesn't get much easier from here. This is the start of a tough stretch where 10 of the next 12 games will be played south of the border.
