New York Times NBA reporter Scott Cacciola tweeted about the Toronto Raptors' two-game skid after writing a piece about their good start. Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey offered a theory:

Morey's Wikipedia link suggests the Raptors have regressed toward the mean or, in other words, are an average team.

After an 11-5 start to the season, Toronto dropped games to the New York Knicks and Indiana Pacers.

Of course, Morey could speak from a high place because the Rockets lead the Western Conference with a 14-4 record. However, it's never a good idea to use Wikipedia.
