  • Raptors Power Rankings

    12 It's funny that the Chris Bosh trade rumors got out of control with the Raptors playing their best ball of the season. Before Sunday's loss to the Celtics, they had won eight of their last nine, and they're still within a half game of the Heat for fifth in the East.

    14 Toronto Raptors
    Last Week: 15

    Toronto Raptors (19-19)
    The Raptors have been a better team with Jarrett Jack in the starting lineup (9-7) than Jose Calderon (9-13). Jack, one of the league's foremost iron men, who has appeared in 206 straight games, is averaging 12.9 points and 5.9 assists while shooting 51.8 percent (71-for-137) as a starter.

    15 (15) Raptors 19-19 Jim from Chicago wrote in to ask why we haven't been trotting out our trusty Leastern Conference references. And he certainly has a point when the Raps needed an 8-2 surge just to give the East six .500 teams.

    17 Until Monday's collapse in Indy, the Raps hadn't lost to anyone besides the Celtics since mid-December.

    The general consensus seems to be that the Dinos are a middle of the pack team right now.

              16 Raptors (21-20) Toronto's early season defense was nonexistent. But since giving up 146 to the Hawks on Dec. 2, the Raps have become at least average on that end -- and gone 14-7.

                I have a feeling the next power rankings will see the Raps dip a few notches-and deservedly so.

                  18 Raptors 16 (-2) 14/20 (23-22) After failing in the clutch so many times this season, Turkoglu finally came through against the Lakers. Even more surprising, Kobe missed the last-second shot in Toronto.

                  They beat the Lakers and they drop two places? Give me a break.

                    Marc Stein has Raptors at 12 this week. Not sure they're better than OKC or Bobcats.

                      12 (13) Raptors 23-22 Catch that quote from Canada's foremost free agent-to-be? "I haven't been this encouraged in a while," Bosh says. And that was before Hedo's clutch drive and FTs pulled out that one-point win Sunday over the Lakers.

                        ESPN Weekly Power Ranking... Raps #7!!

                        In this morning's (Feb/10) power ranking by Marc Stein the Raptors are #7!
                        Ahead of such "elite" teams as... Dallas, Boston, Phoenix & San Antonio.

                          Their season record would have me scratching my head at their ranking there had I not known their record in the past 17 games, 12-5.

                            The Raps went 10-5 in January and beat some pretty good teams.

                            Entering February, the Raps have ten games scheduled and I expect them go to 8-2, which could see them crack the top-5 in everyone's power rankings by the end of the month.

                              As much as I love that the raps are ranked 7th on espn...

                              I think that ranking system is flawed!

                              Why do teams with better records than others get ranked lower?

                              It's silly really ranking teams on how hot they are at the moment.
