    This Houston team is wild, so unlike any other team in the league. They’re just playing five guys on the perimeter, barely using any screens
    Insane, their tallest starter was 6'6" and the tallest guy to play so far is Robert Covington.

    How does AD not have a billion points? That man is a 7 footer who still wants to be a point guard. He could be even better than he is if he played his size.

    Once isn't enough for JClaw. He needs to destroy the Pacers again

    Damn, the Stanley Johnson and Dewan Hernandez erasure lol

    Also, I have no idea how this game will go. Pacers will surely be fired up, but I can see our guys also being super amped after the comeback
    If we can get to 15 wins I’ll include them. Unless there’s a Paul Watson break out game.

    Game #52: Toronto Raptors 115 - Indiana Pacers 106



    Serge Does Art

    Although this is even better





    Or maybe this was the best part




    Well that was something.
    Indy up 11 WITH THE BALL with under 3 minutes to go
    2:58 Domantas Sabonis defensive rebound 116 - 105

    And then insanity.
    Like, this kind of insanity


    But extended for 3 amazing minutes.
    And the guy who did that was on the losing end of the floor

    One other thing to note from this game
    I was mini ranting in a thread the other day about how awesome Kyle is.
    Nothing too remarkable about this sequence
    4:32 Victor Oladipo bad pass (Terence Davis steals) 75 - 64
    4:27 Myles Turner blocks Terence Davis 's 5-foot two point shot 75 - 64
    4:24 Myles Turner defensive rebound 75 - 64
    4:23 Jeremy Lamb misses two point shot 75 - 64
    4:23 Kyle Lowry defensive rebound 75 - 64
    4:16 Terence Davis makes 25-foot three point jumper (Kyle Lowry assists) 75 - 67
    4:14 Pacers Full timeout 75 - 67
    But watching it live, you saw Terrence make a great play with the steal but then cough the ball up (generously noted as a block by Turner).
    As soon as Kyle got the ball back, he was laser focussed on getting the ball back to Terrence and setting him up for an open 3. Which he nailed.
    Sure Kyle gets an assist but it means so much more than that.
    Build that man a statue.
    End of rant.

    Anyways, despite me getting ready to find one of those "guys playing violin as the titanic went down" gifs, the championship calibre Raps pulled it off and here we are in uncharted territory.




    For however long you've followed this team, you've never been here.
    As it was prophesied, 12 games in a row
    **checks alex wong's twitter feed**...no prediction on game 13 yet.

    But here we are at game 13, a place we have never been before.
    Wasn't sure where to go with this one.

    Could have gone with The Baker's Dozen




    Might have gone with the Bar Mitzvah theme



    Could have been inspired by what we must have looked like to the Pacers over the last 3 minutes
    After all, the game is on a Friday




    But this was the best 13 I could come up with



    Although, I guess technically, I could have gone with



    In either case, that's a pretty impressive thirteen.
    The Feb 6th trade deadline has come and gone.
    Nobody in, nobody out.
    This is the team we brought to the dance,
    this is the one we're going to win with.

    Speaking of 13, here's a little math question for you

    We all know Raptors + Kawhi = Championship (and thus Raptors = Championship - Kawhi...however that's not the point I'm making)
    But what does Raptors + Kawhi - Kawhi = ?
    In theory, it should equal "Raptors"
    But do you ever remember a Raptors team that was 5th in the entire league in clutch scoring?
    Not a Raptor team without Kawhi. But here we are. The new and improved Raptors
    5th in the league in clutch scoring.
    Oh...and who's that one below us in 6th?

    1 Oklahoma City Thunder 34 22 12 4.1 67.6 32.4 47.3 15.8 21.2 3.5 31.5 17.9 31.5 24.1 75.9 53.8 46.2 31.0 69.0
    2 Denver Nuggets 31 21 10 3.9 69.8 30.2 46.7 13.2 23.0 4.2 30.3 13.6 33.4 50.7 49.3 86.4 13.6 59.6 40.4
    3 Philadelphia 76ers 32 19 13 3.1 61.1 38.9 44.4 10.9 21.3 5.9 34.3 11.3 33.5 49.1 50.9 82.4 17.6 57.1 42.9
    3 Utah Jazz 29 19 10 3.5 60.1 39.9 42.9 4.5 27.1 8.6 30.1 13.5 38.3 40.4 59.6 66.7 33.3 48.1 51.9
    5 Toronto Raptors 27 17 10 3.6 57.8 42.2 40.5 4.0 30.4 10.9 29.1 11.3 36.4 48.0 52.0 72.0 28.0 56.0 44.0
    6 LA Clippers 24 16 8 3.6 57.0 43.0 39.6 5.4 33.8 10.8 26.6 9.9 34.2 34.1 65.9 84.0 16.0 52.2 47.8
    (move all the stats one column over)

    Anyways, that's enough for now
    No need to introduce the Pacers
    I think we all remember them well.

    Instead, let's just sit back and remember the last three weeks of record breaking Raptors basketball. May it keep on growin'.
