    Demar, JJ, and our starting front-court were really the reasons we were able to stay so close in this game whenever they kept trying to make runs. They may not have scored, or anything, but they brought really good energy, especially on both ends.

      SVG takes notice

      What can I say, I am a sucker for external validation:


      You can hear the Raptors say a lot has changed over and over again, but some external validation is nice on occasion.

      The story has been well told by now. Casey has moved the Raptors from a truly awful defensive team to a middle-of-the-pack defensive team. They have hung with some good teams despite the prolonged absence of Andrea Bargnani.

      It is just at some point, you would like to see the hard work pay off, the losing lessons, pay off. In the last month, the Raptors have lost games to playoff-bound teams by two, three, three and now four points.

        As you say, nice validation. Two years ago, I couldn't watch. Last year, I was at least entertained many nights. This year I see a team truly in transition. Next year I believe they could get the 8th spot.

          I love this team's culture. It's really turned into something exciting for the future. The only lacking thing now is our talent. The players are doing their jobs, the coaching staff is doing their job (Love it when all the coaches are screaming, moving, showing gestures, out of their seats, love it), now it's down to what BC does. No more quick fixes, no more short cuts.

          It's time for a good build, and with an off-season to work with the coaching staff, full training camp, good draft position, Valanciunas coming in, hope for healthy bodies i.e Bargnani, we can be a good balanced team that could hit the 6-8 spots.

            I definitely agree that the foundation has been set.

            Prior to Casey's hiring, I was hoping Lawrence Frank would get the gig here. But in hindsight, I'm very impressed with Casey's knowledge, attitude, and approach to the game.

              Casey: "But again, we started at ground zero". Hmmm. Take a bow Triano.
