The Raptors are a much improved team. They have gotten healthy of late and they added Rudy Gay to their roster via a big trade about a month ago.
They currently sit in the ninth spot in the East - with a 23-33 record; one spot out of a playoff position. The Bucks sit in the eighth spot, with a record of 26-28. If the season ended today, the eighth team would have a record under 500. See standings here.
It is a shame we were so short handed for so many games to start this season. Since John Wall has returned to the lineup, we have been playing at better than a 500 pace.
We have 28 games left to play this season. The team is very focused on playing hard and being productive for the rest of the season. The players and staff are very focused on discipline, defense and playing team ball where everyone in the rotation contributes.
We had a productive weekend. Two big wins over the Nuggets and the Rockets. Watch the game tonight on CSN.
