So while I was catching up on this week’s The Walking Dead, another group of Zombies were getting hacked up once again. I am referring to my beloved Toronto Raptors. This season is all about piling up the losses and getting a top pick. It is about teaching a new culture and turning the tide for the long term.

But as a fan, they are very much like The Walking Dead. Their outcome is sealed, there is no good news coming this season and I just wish we could jump into the future and enjoy some winning again.

Anyways, no TSN2, so no game for me.

I will turn to the talented words of Raptors Republic for a breakdown of last night’s loss to Orlando.

Switching to the game, the Raptors had a tall task taking on the Magic on the second night of a back to back. Amir was given the night off, and with Bargnani continuing his sideline modelling career the Raptors were forced to go at Dwight Howard undermanned. While I expected Toronto to come out a little sluggish after a hard fought win last night, they surprized with focus and aggression right from the tip. Aaron Gray was tasked with holding his own against Dwight Howard, and he answered the call commendably. He used his wide frame and high motor to bother Howard on both ends of the floor, but was hampered with foul trouble due to some questionable officiating (a theme for the game).

I think I am about ready to switch off the NBA and start fresh next year. Just not feeling it.
