Amazing what a little addition by subtraction does for the Toronto Raptors. Remove Andrea Bargnani from the mix and they start winning. Last night the Raps won a road game as they beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 113-99. Holy crap, that is three wins in a row. Is this a sign of things to come or is this the classic Raptors tease that fans know all too well? Tonight they could easily make it four in a row as they take on the Detroit Pistons, who are pretty much as bad as the Raptors are. The downside of all this is, it is making Bargnani’s value drop as he clearly is not valuable to the team winning. General Managers everywhere will be using this angle as they try and steal the Italian shooter for less than dirt. So does the winning streak mean anything to the overall landscape of the NBA? Nope, not a bit. It will be chalked up to an easy stretch in the schedule.. But wins are wins. Maybe it is all an early Christmas present for the fans. Sports Interaction still has the Raptors listed at the bottom of the futures odds right there with Washington and those same Cavs they beat last night. Hey I guess it could be a lot worse. You could be a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers where they were expected to win it all and currently look like dog ****. addthis_url = 'http%3A%2F%2Fcuzoogle.com%2F2012%2F12%2F19%2Fanother-win-the-raptors-are-on-fire%2F'; addthis_title = 'Another+Win+-+The+Raptors+Are+On+Fire'; addthis_pub = '';
