Just watched the Raptors beat a very hot (but tired) BKN Nets team.
The Raps are above .500 and look to be a legit playoff contender.
When the game was in question Derozan took over and scored 7 straight points. He looked like a superstar. Very similar to PG early last year. Demar was also commanding double teams and created easy 3P shots for Salmons and co.
Forget Lowry. Derozan is the real deal and should lead the Raps to the second round.
They are also getting calls that they would have never got last season. What he and Casey are doing is working. I think it's time to recognize our neighbors to the north as a solid contender, eh?
