Blake swings by the podcast to lay down the knowledge, break some knees, and take some names.
The Raptors finish the week 1-3 which included an unlikely victory in Miami followed by deflating defeat at home to the Kings, but hey, at least James Johnson’s getting playing time.

It’s been a week of moral victories and deflating defeats, or so they say. We challenge all assumptions as the Raptors continue their homestand. From Kyle Lowry’s brilliance to James Johnson’s absence, from Bebe’s buckets to Ross’s headband, it’s all covered on an hour plus Raptors Weekly.
