    20. Toronto Raptors : -2.9

    The Raptors have been encouraged by their record and excellent play since the middle of December, encouraged enough to take the idea of trading Chris Bosh completely off the table.

    Toronto doesn't risk a whole lot by keeping Bosh and playing out the season as a middle seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. They get that benefit, the solid opportunity to sign him to an extension, plus they could also do a sign-and-trade or have approximately $9M in cap space if he walks.

    Pretty sure he's wrong about the cap space if Bosh walks. I had a numbe in my mind that was less than the MLE and of course by being under cap by any amount means the MLE and the BAE are off limits.

    8 (7) Raptors 28-23 Since that 146-115 humbling in Atlanta on Dec. 2 and the team meeting that followed, Toronto is 21-10. Which almost -- almost -- atones for the 130 points allowed to Indy after we moved the Raps all the way to No. 7.

    11 Raptors 14 (+3) 11/20 (28-23) With seven wins in eight games, the Raptors have seized hold of the No. 5 spot in the East. Moving up won't be easy, though, unless the Celtics, Magic or Hawks collapse.

    TEAM (LAST WEEK) REC. BREAKDOWN
    11 Toronto (13) 28-23 Pace: 95.8 (10), Off: 109.1 (2), Def: 109.5 (30)
    Their defense provided a November flashback in a 130-115 loss in Indiana, but the Raptors have won seven of their last eight, shooting 51 percent in that stretch. With the teams behind them faltering, they have a strong hold on that fifth spot in the East.

    10 Darn those home-and-homes: Streak ends at Indiana, but Toronto's climb up the standings continues nonetheless. ... Rumors now have Chris Bosh and LeBron teaming, but where?

    I think the American media would have a mental breakdown if James ended up in Toronto. LOL

    11 Toronto Raptors (28-23)
    Chris Bosh gets the headlines, but you can't overlook Andrea Bargnani's impact this season. The Raptors' fourth-year center is averaging career highs in points (17.7), rebounds (6.2), field-goal percentage (47.8) and minutes (34.4).

    Bargnani is starting to get a little love. The Raef LaFrentz comparisons are officially shattered.
