    Default Best play of the Raptors 2013-2014 season

    Thoughts on that?

    I remember a play which I unfortunately can't find highlight off.

    It was a steal by a Raptor on defense who then literally threw the ball ahead (Salmons?), which was caught by Vasquez who then threw an alley-hoop to Patrick Patterson on the break.

    That play had me jumping up and down as it was representative of the Raptors season as a whole, good defense leading to an unselfish and exciting fastbreak.

    Obviously the Ross dunk over Faried and the DeRozan over Noah/Singler were great too, but more of an individual play than team basketball.
    Myself (March 2014):
    The raptors are a tremendous young team and will win a championship in the following five years.

    I liked the PP steal best. It was best team highlight of year.

    Best individual highlight, imo, was Ross over Faried.

    True, the Patterson was uberly dramatic after the defender flew buy biting on the pump fake.

    As good as the Ross play was, unfortunately it didn't lead to a victory made it that much harder to accept defeat.

    Not an actual play, but seeing how happy DeMar and Lowry were after a Hawks win in January was probably my favourite moment.

    The bench reaction from the Ross on Faried dunk (i believe) was pretty awesome as well.

    Lowry bounce pass on the break to vasquez who passes behind his back to amir Johnson who throws it down, pumps his jersey and leaves a guy hanging. My favorite at of the season.

    Easily the game ending play in Brooklyn with the Patterson steal and bucket. Was the most hype i got all season by far.

    Most spectacular individual highlight was the Ross dunk on Faried by a long way, but even that doesn't come close to a dramatic game winner like what happened that night in Brooklyn.

    In terms of dramatics, Patterson's steal.

    In terms of individual play, Ross' dunk over Faried.

    I vote for Ross over Faried.

    Patterson's game winner was nice, but in the end, it was just a regular season game without much long-lasting appeal.

    Ross's dunk, on the other hand, doesn't take the value of the game into account. It's timeless on its own.

    It kind of sucks that all of Ross sweet plays don't end up in wins. From the dunk to the 51 point game against the clippers and the final steal in game 7. Ugh.

    They won the game in Denver when he dunked on Faried I'm pretty sure.

    I'd have to agree that the Patterson steal + game winner would take my number 1 spot...but this would be a VERY close second:
