The Raptors were leading 26-20 after the 1st quarter, but followed that up with possibly the worst quarter in Toronto Raptors history. Philadelphia tightened things defensively and shot lights out in the 2nd quarter, outscoring Toronto 32-7 in that span!On this night the injury bug continued for the Raptors, as Alan Anderson suffered a sprained left ankle in the third quarter on a drive to the basket. He now joins Kyle Lowry (ankle) and Landry fields (hand/wrist) with injuries that will sideline these players for the foreseeable future. Kyle Lowry was ruled out of last night's game after the afternoon shootaround, erring on the side of caution. Landry Fields will visit another specialist early this week for his hand/wrist injury to be re-evaluated.On a positive note, the Toronto Raptors wore their special 'Canadian Forces Collection' jerseys in support of the Military Families Fund, on the eve of Remembrance Day in Canada, and Veterans Day in the United States.The Toronto Raptors are now 1-5 on the season and other than their 105-86 home win vs. the Minnesota Timberwolves on Nov. 4th, key lapses during the games have either cost the the Raptors the win or have caused them to expend too much energy playing catch up for long stretches in the game.Let's review:
