Raptors roll in a rather humdrum affair

I thought Nick might have stayed a bit too long with the all-backup, no-point guard, run-around-like-you-know-what-you’re-doing-even-if-you-don’t group a bit too long in the first half when he rode ‘em for about 11minutes.
But in their second stint they didn’t go as long but went as crazy to start the fourth quarter, extending the lead rather than just holding it.
There was one play that perfectly summed up their effort:
Someone – and I think it was OG – tips the ball away from LeBron, it’s like a jail break to the other end, McCaw hammers a layup off the rim that misses but there’s like six hands at the rim to tip it in, a bucket I think they gave to Norm.
Now, I don’t think that group can survive playing at length against good teams but, man, it’s provides some energy when it’s going flat out, doesn’t it?
