Kyle Lowry returning to his usual abilities,
Derozan improving his 3pt% by the same amount as he improved it last year (it would bring him to a .300%)
Rudy to feel more comfortable in this system after a training camp
Val improving and being utilized correctly
and Ross improving and being utilized correctly.
I dont think I am asking for too much here. Remember last year we also started 4-19, and picked it up to play at a higher level. I saw a lot last year in 2, 5 game winning streaks (which we didnt have ONCE since I believe 2007) which showed a team playing cohesively and to their talents.
