    Reggie Miller was never as athletic than Ross. I think Ross is more than a scorer than a shooter.
    +1 I agree. I see a more talented, less egotistical J.R. Smith/Nick Young with defense. I don't know that overall player that turns into.

    Ed Davis was fantastic! He's been underrated so it seems! The guy's jump-shot looked really solid, and man, defensively he made Aldridge shoot jump-shot, after jump-shot.

    I was very pleased with the point guards, they were looking to get guys involved, they ran the offense smoothly, and the defense was pretty good, even for Jose's standards.

    Derozan, Fields, & Ross. Someone please give them a glass of milk, and some chocolate chip cookies. Impressive is all I have to say. Ross was dishin' and swishin' baby! Derozan was so patient offensively, his jump-shot was on point, and the defense was fantastic, getting in those passing lanes! Fields came in, rebounded the ball, played solid defense, and got his O.

    Overall, great game, and I hope they sustain this play. Obviously, they won't be blowing teams out, but running an un-selfish offense, locking down the paint, running shooters off the line, and communicating, it'll be hard to beat the Raptors!

    P.S, we are only a couple games out of the 8th seed. Boston and Brooklyn still trying to find themselves, and a team could choke down the stretch. Pray we sustain our play, and teams get some beatings!

    Actually, I think it is just the opposite. All these wins without Bargs has now put pressure on BC to trade him for anything.

    I agree with Puffer.

    Actually, if anything, it has increased the pressure to trade him in my opinion.
    It has proven that Casey's system works far better without having a massive Black-hole in the middle of it.

    Hilarious. Not going to lie though .. the refs not making those crazy calls they were at the beginning of the season have played a big role in the winning streak. Haha

    This is just bad though.

    Haven't seen this mentioned and I'm not sure what it's worth but did everyone else know that TRoss is from Portland? I knew he played college ball out west but I didn't know he was born there. Playing for the hometown cameras. I think that speaks well that he could rise up when there was some amped up internal pressure. Once again...let's come up with a better nickname than TRoss

    I would like to call him The Tornado. He comes out of nowhere and wreaks havoc.

    Surprised no ones talked about Amir. 17 points 7 rebounds and 4 assists just as impressive as everyone else.
    Also I like the TDot Flight nickname.

    What I meant is that it's taken the pressure of him to trade Bargs as soon as possible (as in time frame), but I agree with you and puffer that the pressure to trade the player is probably at an even higher point now that the teams success without Bargs has put him in more of a spotlight.

    i'm glad to see the improvement in amir

    you can see a huge window of respectability opening up for him..

    getting rid of that haircut was a career changing move

    when Amir plays well he plays really well. when he doesn't have a good game he's invisible.

    Batum with the compliment of the year:

    Nic Batum talked about how different this Raptors team looks than the one the Blazers dominated in December: "This is a different team. This is not the same team that I saw two weeks ago. It's crazy when I watched the video this morning and then watched the game tonight, this is a new team. This is not the same team. They played good. Give credit to their coaching staff and them."
