Well it was just a few weeks ago when I was commenting on their being signs of a bright future in Toronto. A few big road wins and a few tough games against good teams and the Raps were giving us reason to watch.
Then last night they lose to the Washington Wizards in overtime. Back to reality.
The much improved defense was no where to be found last night as the Wizards put up 111 points. John Wall had 31 to lead all scorers.
The Raptors did make it close, as they sent the game into extra time, but there was no joy in mudville on this night.
I did not see much of the game but just from fan reaction, it was not a pretty one. Those are the games you need to win, even if you are not at your best. The Wizards are a bad team, plain and simple.
After watching them put up a decent fight against the Heat on Sunday, I was expecting them to handle the Wiz.
Maybe it was playing back-to-back, who knows. The next game is against the Bucks and the Raptors never play well against the Bucks. Oh well, it was not like I was expecting them to win a lot.
