"Finding Their Footing"
Toronto Raptors Review/preview
Join us for another edition of the South of the 6ix Podcast for a Raptors Review and Preview.
- The Toronto Raptors are riding a 4 game winning streak after claiming victories over Atlanta, Indiana, Charlotte, and Phoenix. The team, as a whole, is starting to establish their footing and becoming a much more cohesive unit, playing to their potential, and starting to become that familiar force in the Eastern Conference. Moreover, Kyle Lowry is on an absolute tear and is shooting the ball better and much more reliably than he did to start the season.
- However, there are some issues that need addressing. Specifically, issues surrounding the brunt of all Raptors angst - Jonas Valanciunas - and where he fits in with the team. His slot as the starting center may be in jeopardy as Jakob Poeltl is starting to break out and is making a legitimate case to eat into the minutes that were otherwise reserved for JV. Also, although they are starting to disappear, the 3rd quarter is still an uncomfortable topic that ought to be addressed. Lastly, there were rumors regarding the Raptors being interested in a possible trade deal for DeAndre Jordan. What would it take to acquire him and - if it means sacrificing essential pieces for the future - are we interested?
- To help examine these and other topics, host Adam Corsair has guest Jordan Kligman of HashTageBasketball.com and the NEW Hashtag Raptors Podcast. Both get deep into the conversation and thoroughly examine the aforementioned issues and other topics as well. Plus, we preview and offer our predictions for this week's game.
