    Game Notes:
    To be updated when Media Notes become available.
    • The Toronto Raptors continue a seven-game homestand (Nov. 7-21) by hosting the Orlando Magic at Air Canada Centre. The Raptors enters Tuesday’s game leading the Eastern Conference after seven games for the first time in franchise history. The last time Toronto was tied for the conference lead was Nov. 12, 2004 with a 4-2 record. The Raptors’ 6-1 (.857) start is the best in franchise history, eclipsing a 4-1 (.800) start in 2004-05.
    • Toronto has an opportunity to win its first five home games for the second time in team history. The Raptors started the 2003-04 season 5-0 when playing at Air Canada Centre. Since January 1, 2014 the Raptors are 25-7 (.781) in the regular season when playing at Air Canada Centre. The franchise record for consecutive home wins in a single season is nine (Mar. 7-Apr. 4, 1999).
    • DeMar DeRozan needs 20 points to pass Andrea Bargnani (6,561) for third place on the Raptors’ all-time scoring list. DeRozan already passed Morris Peterson (6,498) for fourth on the team’s all-time points list Nov. 5 at Boston. DeRozan has averaged 16.8 points in 390 NBA games (378 starts) since being selected ninth overall by the Raptors in the 2009 NBA Draft.
    • Toronto is 6-0 this season when leading after three quarters. Dating back to the start of last season the Raptors are now 39-2 when ahead entering the fourth, including a perfect 24-0 at Air Canada Centre. Toronto has won 31 straight games when leading after three quarters.
    • The Raptors enter Tuesday’s game as the highest scoring team in the NBA averaging 107.4 points through seven games. Toronto’s best offensive start came in 2009-10 when the team averaged 109.4 points through the first seven games, while shooting .485 from the field and .429 from three-point range. The Raptors have six players averaging double-figures – DeRozan (22.7), Lowry (17.9), Valanciunas (11.3), Ross (10.7), Williams (10.4) and A. Johnson (10.3).
    • Toronto will wear its military camouflage uniforms during Tuesday’s game vs. Orlando. It’s also the first time the team will wear uniforms with sleeves. November 11th is Remembrance Day in Canada - a memorial day observed in British Commonwealth countries since the end of World War I.
    • The Raptors have won eight straight games versus Orlando. It’s the longest active winning streak against any opponent. The last time Orlando defeated Toronto was Mar. 26, 2012.

                  Random university story: A buddy of mine was too drunk to get up and walk to the bathroom, so instead, he took his empty pint glass, pissed into it while seated (he didn't spill a drop), and left the foamy liquid on the table for the bartender to clean up afterwards, without anyone of importance noticing.

                  That's what I envision you drinking. A warm, frothy, pint of urine.

                  Let's hope the Raps take care of business, lol.

                            Orlando's been playing pretty well lately, and it's really easy to look ahead to that big game Thursday against the Bulls.
                            That is a normal collar. Move on, find a new slant.
