"You can see why," Raptors coach Jay Triano said. "To beat a team like this, we need to have our guys playing a lot better than they did today. You can go through the list and see who didn't play well for us. When your list is that long you're not going to beat the better teams, and this is one of the best teams in the NBA right now."
What more can you say? TOR has been playing well at home lately and we come out and do exactly what a good team should do against an inferior foe- jump on them early and take them out of the game.
NOt only did we come out with fire and energy, but we held on to the lead all game and closed out in the 4th. AN EASY WIN.
We're not forced to sit here and moan about how hard it is to win without Ronnie Turiaf.
We're 9-1 in last 10 games (1 loss in DEN was close).
We've won 7 consecutive road games. BEST road team in mlb, and longest NYK streak since the '94-'95 season.
Some people didn't understand how significant the move from Duhon-Lee to Felton-STAT would be. I think they see it now. ON and OFF the court.
Fields has been terrific. Chandler and Gallo growing, playing more well-rounded games; and now former 1st round pick Williams is taking advantage of his opportunity.
Let's win the next 3 and go .500 when the schedule gets tough. DEN-BOS-MIA at home.
