OTHER PERSPECTIVES
: Raptors Republic

PREVIOUSLY, THE TORONTO RAPTORS...were without both Andrea Bargnani and Jose Calderon in their 95-117 loss at Milwaukee Wednesday night. Following their utter defensive capitulation in their 146-115 loss in Atlanta on December 2nd, the Raptors responded with three successive good defensive performances to win @Washington, @Chicago, and at home against Minnesota.

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.
