    Talking Points
    • Toronto will play 10 of its next 12 games on the road (Nov. 3-22).

    • The Raptors have started the season 3-0 for just the third time in team history and the first time since 2008-09.

    Toronto has never began a season with four straight victories.

    • Tuesday marks the 20th anniversary of first game played by the Raptors. Toronto hosted the New Jersey Nets on Nov. 3, 1995 at SkyDome. The Raptors defeated the Nets, 94-79, behind 30 points from Alvin Robertson.

    • With Sunday’s victory over Milwaukee, Dwane Casey earned his franchise-record 157th win as head coach of the Raptors passing Sam Mitchell (156).

    • Toronto has improved its overall record in four consecutive seasons (2011-15) under Casey, marking the first time this has happened in team history.

    • Miami’s Erik Spoelstra (2008), Indiana’s Frank Vogel (2011) and Casey (2011) are the longest tenured coaches in the Eastern Conference.

    Dwane Casey has coached 50 different players during his Toronto tenure. DeMar DeRozan is the only player that has played continuously for Casey since his first season in 2011-12.

    • Kyle Lowry recorded his 1,500th assist as a member of the Raptors Oct. 28 vs. Indiana. He is the fifth player in team history to reach 1,500 assists with the club - Jose Calderon (3,770), Alvin Williams (1,791), Damon Stoudamire (1,761) and Vince Carter (1,553).

    After three games Toronto has a +38 (149-to-111) rebounding differential. The Raptors have out rebounded their opponent by double figures in every game this season. Jonas Valanciunas leads the team with 33 total rebounds, including a career-high 14 defensive rebounds in the season-opener Oct. 28 vs. Indiana.

        Breaking down their defense won't be too difficult if the ball movement is even half of what it was last game.

          Sounds a lot better than "Pheonix Suns North" or whatever it was.

                Parons is still going to get locked up by Carroll

                  Beatable game, but don't fall asleep on Zaza and Deron Williams. They can frustrate and do damage in under-the-radar fashion.

                    Because Bryan Colangelo did not know what the fuck he was doing and Masai kept trading for better players

                      I don't think our notorious PG problem will be continuing this season. Kyle seems a lot more energized and we finally have a great defensive PG off the bench. Also.. Zaza? If Greg Monroe couldn't do damage on us inside...

                        Zaza and D-Will are the least of our worries. We should be focused on Dirk, especially with Scola and Patman guarding him.

                            The Joey streak continues!

                            Matchups:
                            Lowry >> Deron
                            Derozan > hobbled Matthews
                            Carroll > recovering Parsons
                            Scola <<< Dirk
                            Val >> Zaza Petunia
                            Our bench >> their bench
                            Casey <<<<< Carlisle

                            So Vegas has us 1.5 point favorites.

                              This is a game the Raptors got to win, because a day after they are facing OKC and it will be a much tougher match.
