The Toronto Raptors season has reached an inflection point. The team has been hanging around the fringes of the playoff race in the Eastern Conference, and has made a trade designed to improve results immediately. If the Raps are going to make a push for the #8 seed, they need to string together a bunch of wins, tout de suite. Wednesday night’s loss to the Boston Celtics was a severe fumble, as the Celtics are a team the Raps must elbow aside to grab the last seat on the playoff train.
