Raptors Review: After Twenty Games

Toronto coach Dwane Casey, seen here estimating how many games the Raptors will win this season.

Record: 6-14 (2-8 over the past 10)

High point: Bargnani’s return. My goodness, the Raptors missed Bargnani. Winless without him, he came back to score 36 points against Phoenix, giving the Raps their first win against the Suns since about 1943. He helped them win again the next night…then left the game late with an injury. Awesome.

Low point: Jamaal Magloire airballing a free throw with the game on the line.

Stuff I’ve Noticed:

–          Technically, in terms of a player’s value to a team, Bargnani might be the league’s MVP.

–          Without Bargnani, the Raptors’ playbook goes something like this: Calderon dribbles up the court, looks around for a bit, sees zero passing options, pulls up for a jumper.

–          Sometimes Barbosa gets a little carried away.

Memorable Quote:
“Coming from the last three years winning 50 and 60 games a year and a championship, it’s tough.”
 – Coach Casey reflects on what it’s like to move from Dallas to Toronto, Jan. 20
