The Raps actually showed up against an opponent in the first quarter for the first time in weeks, and then built a lead before coasting home to a 94-73 win. The bigger story. The victory gave the Raptors a 3-2 record on their five-game trip, the first time since 2001 that the franchise has had a winning record in a road trip that was five games or more.
