The Toronto Raptors keep piling up accomplishments.
But they realize they have more to do this season.
Greivis Vasquez scored 25 points, Kyle Lowry had 24 and the Raptors set a franchise record with their 48th win, beating the Milwaukee Bucks 110-100 on Monday night. “This is probably the best team I’ve ever been on,” Vasquez said. It may well be, but the true measure of Toronto’s success will come in their postseason performance. “We can’t just be happy,” Vasquez said. “We’ve got to continue to get better and make a run in the playoffs.”
Vasquez made an impact right away, hitting three of Toronto’s six 3-pointers in the first quarter, as the Raptors built a 32-19 lead after one.
Vasquez had two more 3-pointers in the second, getting eight points and four assists as Toronto took a 59-46 lead at halftime.
LeBron had 18 points, 18 Rebounds and 10 assists yet some of the analysts said he was tentative.
After the crushing defeat in the opening game, No one gave the Warriors a chance. Golden State’s great Coach, mark Jackson told his guys to have amnesia and they listened. Virtually a gate to wire victory. Stephen’s running mate Klay Thompson shot 8-9 from the 3 point line. The Warriors sure look like the superior team as of now.
3 of Golden State’s key players certainly are remembered for games against Maryland:
Draymond Green–Michigan State
Jarrett Jack–from Georgia Tech
Harrison Barnes —Tar Heels
Talk about a young team!!!
If the refs continue to let the Bulls commit thuggery on LeBron this could be a series. My pick–Heat in 5.
As usual Curry was fantastic.
Warriors move on to face San Antonio. Golden State has not won in San Antonio since February 14, 1997–that’s 16 years. Game 1 is Monday night.
Highlight of the 2 days of games: Charles Barkley called James Harden of Houston an old man. “The Beard” is 23.
Apparently the only obstacle is for Jackson to have the option of passing on a few east coast road trips. His price—$10 million a year

Kevin Plank on Randy Edsall: “Randy Edsall is a good, strong, decent man who is working his tail off on behalf of the University of Maryland,” Plank said. “And there are more people that want to spend their days burning things down than building it up. At least just stop rooting against him. You know, give the guy a chance.”
