Verdict: Don’t Panic!

Let’s be real for a moment. Barring a cataclysmic catastrophe, the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to win the East. Not that the Raptors shouldn’t look to knock them off or anything, but we are still a team looking to take that next step. As such, with our record 8-6, the Raptors have played to everyone’s expectations thus far.

There is still room for improvement, as Dwane Casey still

sucks as a head coach

needs to improve his offensive sets and know when to call timeouts in the game. And while I’d rather see Lowry and DeRozan use less ISO plays (WAY less ISO plays), the offense is passible for now.

If the Raptors were under .500, we’d have more reason to panic, but for now, rest easy #WeTheNorth.
