5 Things People Are Talking About After the New-Look Raptors Debut
John E. Sokolowski-US PRESSWIRE

There is a lot to talk about after the Raptors home opener against the Indiana Pacers.

It was a very entertaining game from a neutral standpoint, coming down to a few plays down the stretch. That is how close the Raptors came to a major upset of the Indiana Pacers. In the end, David West lead the Pacers down the stretch and George Hill hit the final blow that sealed the deal.

The Pacers escaped the Air Canada Centre with a 90-88 win to start the season.

The Raptors were being talked about before this game even got started for the contract extension they came to with DeMar DeRozan. He will be a very well paid man for the next four seasons and will remain with the Raptors. As for his night on the floor, it wasn’t that great, as he missed his first five shots and only had 10 points on the night.

Kyle Lowry was as advertised for the Raptors and rookie Jonas Valanciunas was only the second Raptor to record a double-double in his debut. There were lots of talking points from the first game of the season for the Raptors. Here are the five that will likely dominate the conversation.
