Raptors Report Week 10: Toronto Ends Week Beating a Contender

January 3rd, 2010 by Sachin Arora Leave a reply »
The Raptors had another good week, improving to 17-18. They have had many off days which has helped them quite a bit and have looked fresh out of the gate and have been keeping themselves in games.

This is the Raptors we have all been waiting for and things are only going to keep improving. 

Record: 2-1

Performance on a scale of 1-10: 7

Positives: The strong defensive play of the Raptors is continuing and it seems like they can actually compete if they want to. Chris Bosh is becoming a physically monster. I would like to point out particularly in the game against the Spurs when Bosh stopped superstar Tim Duncan, then posted Duncan up for the score.

Negatives: Intensity on the road has been a huge problem, as the Raptors can't seem to play well on the road. Hedo Turkoglu is injured, and there is still no status on Reggie Evans.

The Raptors lost to a beaten up Boston team, who didn't have Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, or Rajon Rondo. That's a game that they have to win, but they came out of the gate playing soft and taking jumpers despite the fact that they knew the Celtics were lacking inside presence.
