Two teams going in two seemingly different directions face off in Toronto tonight. Can the Raptors get back to their winning ways, or will LeBron and company end the night in a tie for second in the Eastern Conference?
With the Raptors currently sitting with the league’s fourth best record, behind three teams that didn’t even make it past the first round last year, could this be one of those years when a dark horse ends up winning the title?
Last June, the Spurs put on one of the most incredible displays of basketball the NBA has ever seen when they thoroughly beat the reigning two-time NBA champions, the Miami Heat. A team previously derided as boring suddenly made passing and teamwork exciting and trendy.
