It's not likely that they'll sit in this spot all season, but I'll take whatever small victories we get along the way.

They're also 6th in points allowed per game at 91.5

It's going to be a tough stretch to keep that up though. Over the next 9 days, the team only has 2 days off, including Toronto's set of back-to-back-to-back games (every team has 1 such run this season).

today - vs NJ
tomorrow - @ Phi
Sunday - off day
Monday - vs Min
Tuesday - @ Wsh
Wednesday - vs Sac
Thursday - off day
Friday - vs Ind
Saturday (14th) - @ Chi
Luckily, during that stretch we face very weak teams in NJ, Min, Wsh, Sac, with a winnable game against the Sixers.

But, then we finish off with two very tough matchups in the Pacers and Bulls.

Looks like I'm heading down to the game tonight...of the cheap sections (ie the $24/26/34 ones up high), which are the best? Or should I make the leap to the $70 baseline seats that are 12 rows up behind the basket?

Buy the cheap tix and then try to move down .

There seems to be lots of empty seats this year .

It turns out if you go to raptors.com/ticketpass and just type in "yorkalumni" and set up an account you get some pretty sweet deals.

I ended up 17 rows up in the corner for $59 which I figure is pretty solid (although the aforementioned moving down idea probably would have been a solid one too as long as the ushers aren't total *****es like at Jays games).

Minnesota isn't great by any stretch, but they're better than people give them credit for.

NJ is brutal right now though, No D-Will, no Lopez, no Humphries tonight it appears.

We need Kleiza back. Rasual is so useless.

I'm not sure Kleiza will be much better when he returns. He was never terribly athletic in the first place, and having microfracture surgery can only make things worse

Nice move Andrea. Had the space to take a shot but took it right to them.

Matt Devlin is so delayed it's not even funny. Calls things a full few seconds after they happen.

If he returns to form, he is much better than Rasual since he can post, rebound, defend and create something offensively. Rasual can't do much other than play some decent defense.

Of course I am assuming he returns to form.

Getting killed on the glass.

If we start rebounding, this should be an easy win.

I'd rather have Gary Forbes start over Rasual.

Davis is having a solid game.

EDIT: Bargnani is getting killed on the glass. Get some rebounds please.

only 2 points for DeMar on 1-6 shooting too.

Bargs still getting killed on the glass. I guess that's something even Casey can't get him to do.

except that he's had 7 boards in 3 of the 6 games so far. Not great totals by any means, but Casey has in fact generated an improvement in Bargnani's rebounding effort.

New Jersey is just a particularly strong rebounding team.

Jose's horrible defense and Bargnani's terrible rebounding have killed us this game.
