Ok so things didn't exactly go as planned last night did they?

The Raptors played without a doubt their worst game of the season, and got crushed by the Detroit Pistons in the D.

Now they turn around, minus Jose Calderon to boot, and have to face a Milwaukee Bucks club that's making a push for the East's final playoff spot. Milwaukee is no Oklahoma City, and maybe no Detroit for that matter considering the way the PIstons have been playing, but it should be a good test of the Raps' mental mettle nonetheless.

The key question for me tonight is how Toronto's two go-to players, DeMar DeRozan and Andrea Bargnani play in the face of adversity, especially given the quick turnaround. There's no question they, and ah, the entire team, need to play a whole lot better tonight, or this one could get ugly in a hurry.
