- How does he measure the Raptors against the top four teams in the Eastern Conference right now: “They’re better than us. I think hands down, they’re better than us. I think that gives us something to work for. We need to work, yeah. Plain and simple. Atlanta’s beaten us pretty handily. Boston has, we split with Cleveland and we’ve only beat Orlando once. Against those teams, we’re going to have to make sure that we work on those things I just talked about, playing against physical teams.”
- Does he think the team can get to that level:”We can definitely get there. It just takes hard work. It takes all of us. It takes a collective effort from everybody. Everybody has to be on the same page. We have to limit our mistakes and we have to play better defence.”

Spot on. Let's see some continued improvement, including CB4, on defence.
