The Raps sank to a new low against the Houston Rockets as they are now 2-4 without the services of the franchise Chris Bosh. Utter embarrassment may just be an understatement for how the Raptors did or did not play. Individuals came out to play for the Raptors and out the window went the concept of playing with a team. Marcus Banks stepped in for the injured Jose Calderon who showed up to play with grit but unfortunately the team was dropping like flies as Turk did not return. The backcourt of the Rockets combined for 56 points and even Reggie the pitbull couldn't stop the runs by the Rockets!

The OKC Thunder a young athletic squad who will not be afraid to pounce on you when you are not looking. The catalyst along with his teammate Jeff Green combined for 49 of the Thunder point total. The small market team also had their head coach Scott Brooks rewarded as the coach of the month leading his team to a 9-2 mark in the month of February. The Raptors struggled for a 5th straight night without the franchise and saw Jose Calderon go down with an elbow contusion. No time to dwell they face Houston on the 2nd night of a back to back where they are 5-9.

Leave it to Lebron to go on fire against the Raps and even to get none other then Antwan Jamison going! He had a stellar game despite being out of the flow for the first three he was finding his form! Leave it to the Raptors to find their groove late but it wasn't enough as the Cavs lead by their assistants prevailed!

The Blazers depleted bench stepped up tremendously outscoring the Raptors bench 35-24. Most importantly the stat you are all looking forward to hearing about the Raptors for the first time in 20 games were help below 100 points and now sit at 19-1. Give it up to the vet Juan Howard who still has some hopes at the ripe old age of 37 as he looks on to the next one! The Raptors got some production from the fan favourite Reggie Evans who inches closer to game form each and every day!

Wizards came into this game with a new look line up and their confidence at an all-time high winners of two straight. Josh Howard was explosive scoring 12 in the 1st half and trickling down after that (so much for playoff hopes). The Raptors buckled down when it counted the most and executed their defensive and offensive sequences with ease. Now, the test gets difficult facing teams with winning records!

The Nets came out as expected lacking a quick first step that allowed the Raptors to own them in each statistical category. Rasho 'The Pro' Nesteravic came in and devoured the home team finishing with 16 points 7 rebounds and 4 assists. The rookie showed us that he hasn't hit the rookie wall as DeRozan was packing it in from the paint with his put backs along with some nifty dunks! (He was robbed I tell you). Shout out to a one day break out player in the league Brook Lopez for his outstanding performance with the Nets!

Feeling the ill-effects of getting back to work the first day back from the break were those Toronto Raptors. The Memphis Grizzles who could be deemed as one of the surprise teams in the west weren't going to let the Raptors stand in their way. Zach Randolph & Rudy Gay couldn't be stopped driving to the paint while Chris Bosh's double-double efforts couldn't solidify the victory! Don't fault the passion of Amir Johnson for the Raptors whose efforts off the bench provided those key energy buckets!

Time to soak have some fun! The Raptors trampled the Sixers despite their sudden spurt in the 4th quarter! Il Mago wasn't convinced they were going to soar to the top with him standing in their way along with the fan favourite Reggie Evans making his debut as a Raptor in the regular season! Jose Calderon was also providing us the knowledge of his impressive 6th sense that marveled our minds.

The mask man Hedo Turkoglu comes alive vs. the Sacramento Kings. The dismal 3-22 road record of the Kings doesn't justify their athletic ability with the leading contender of rookie for rookie of the year co-existing with Kevin Martin. Well, the Raptors had no problem executing their fire power with a monster 6-7 performance from Antoine Wright and Sonny Weems putting on a transition dunk-a-thon. Raptors grab their 7th straight home victory and they play one more time before heading into the all-star break!

The Raptors make home court a scary place to play for their opponents. The New Jersey Nets sure did give them a run for their money from the opening tip but the worst team in the league knew they were going to get disappointed sooner rather then later! The temptation to tank the entire season has already occurred for this team! They have talent but they are on their way to becoming the worst team in the win/loss column in league history!

Pacers call for revenge succeeds maybe because of the substitute Lester Canner in place of the absence Jim O'Brian who allowed his team to have alittle fun. They sure did get lose as seven players scored in double figures. It did result in a wasted opportunity put on by the Killer Bs. Let's just say mom was right there are always days like this.

Pacers gave them a scare the last time these two teams met come back from 23 down to win. Well, on this night the Raptors played so subpar defense but prevailed through their offensive arsenal. Jose Calderon shone from his bench production and Jarrett Jack couldn't help but smile undoing the funk the Raptors got themselves into late.
