The Toronto Raptors welcomed the Detroit Pistons to town last night, and though Toronto came away with a 96-91 win, it wasn’t pretty. There were turnovers, misses, poorly-handled traps, lackadaisical defense… this one had… well, not much. I mean, there weren’t any fights or technicals handed out, and no one’s getting fined for anything… so, victory?
It’s January basketball. Catch the excitement!
- It was You Can Play night at the ACC. Really proud of the team and organization for embracing leadership in this area. This got me choked up:

- Kyle Lowry started slow but settled in by the end, knocking down two key triples down the stretch. Hopefully the broken butt saga is over.
- There aren’t many people that can make Jonas Valanciunas and Jakob Poeltl look small. Boban Marjanovic is one of those people.
