The Raptors are on a seven game winning streak at the ACC, and the only team they have lost to at home in the past 12 games is the Boston Celtics. This is huge because being able to take advantage at home is key. Hedo Turkoglu, Jose Calderon, and DeMar DeRozan have returned from their injury and are playing like they never left.

With the Raptors rolling into the break, the question remains: can they keep this up? In one word, yes. The Raptors have the build of a good team, and with Reggie Evans returning from injury our team should only get better.

Record: 2-1

Performance on a scale of 1-10: 7

Positives

The Raptors played pretty decent throughout the week with everybody returning from injury, moving the ball, hustling.

Negatives

The Raptors lost to a lowly Indiana team and let the Nets stay in it until the fourth quarter. If they want to be an elite team, they can’t keep losing to teams at the bottom of their conference.

Overall, going 2-1 isn’t bad, and hopefully they can win their only game coming up on Wednesday against the 76ers. DeMar Derozan is going to be fun to watch in the dunk in, and I’m looking forward to all-star weekend.

I’m not going to do a report for this week because the Raptors only have one game to play. I’m also sorry for releasing this week’s report a day late, I was just too sad from the Super Bowl to do anything.

GO RAPS!
