“I thought Jose was playing pretty darn well,” said Triano. “I thought we had a good rhythm with that group so I just rolled with it.

In five minutes, Evans never lost sight of what makes him tick and what qualities he brings to Toronto's table.
As expected, he lost his wind about two minutes into his debut.
Not surprisingly, he tried things he would normally not attempt, understandable given how excited he appeared.
All in all, it was quite the debut, a coming-out party that has no parallel in Raptors history.
