The Toronto Raptors have won five of their last six games.
They've already won as many games this season as last, with about five weeks to go in the current season, and they lead the Atlantic Division by four games over the Brooklyn Nets.
However the club can't afford to rest on its laurels. The Chicago Bulls upset the Miami Heat in overtime earlier today, and continue to breathe down the necks of the Dinos. A loss to the Timberwolves tonight would draw the Bulls even with the Raptors, so yes, Toronto can't afford to look at any game, no matter the opponent's record, as a cake walk.
That of course means that tonight against an always dangerous Minnesota team, Toronto continues to need to bring its A game. Luckily, the Raptors haven't looked past an opponent in a few weeks, so I'm fully expecting the Dinos to bring it this evening.
