Jan 4th vs Orlando, Total TEAM effort period. Plays were executed to its fullest. Best game of the year so far and again if this isn't the game we turn things around, I dont know what can.

Best win of the season....and we did it without JO and Jose.

What a way to start of the year!

Those two players are the reason why the Toronto Raptors don't push the ball and run the floor.

I'm cautiously optimistic but we have Milwaukee, Washington and Memphis coming up next.. So we SHOULD take all 3 games. I hope.

But look at us without JO. Our interior defense is much much worse. Howard was just having his way today.

Same here. Too afraid to have my heart broken OKC style.

If there was ever going to be a turning point in the season this is it.

We just upset two of the better teams in the NBA and now we have 3 in a row against teams that we should handle easily.

Turning this into 5 in a row is a must now.

We just need to curb our expectations. It was a good win for sure but we're not going to get 13-16 from AP every night.

don't sleep on the next three games PLEASE raps
Milwaukee, Washington and Memphis are all teams that have a lot of talent

regarding today's matinee, raps did the right thing to get two quick fouls on dwight early in the 1st, because he was 14-19 for 39 pts in 36 mins, had he played 40+ minutes, he would have been a huge problem
triano did a great job with the game plan attacking early and often and then going outside for jumpers
go inside out, not outside in FINALLY raptors

Triano was a big part in this win as well. He made the right adjustments whenever Orlando began to pull away with a lead or when the raps were making big mistakes. The raps actually came of a timeout and did something good.

I really hope this trend continues when we have O'Neal and Jose back.

When they come back we go back to a half court team ..... no more runnning Jose prefers to slow everything down and set up and O'Neal, well we already know what his deal is .......

Milwaukee, Washington and Memphis all scare me. They are all talented and young. If there is one thing I've learned about watching the Raptors this season is that nothing is ever a sure thing.

Memphis is no joke for sure, they have the kind of burst scoring ability that can beat anyone if Rudy and OJ get hot. For some reason this game scare me the most.

Charlie V has a bad habit of lighting us up, but i suspect we will take at least one of the Bucks games.

Washington just beat the Cavs, but I still feel pretty confident.
