The Toronto Raptors have a great backcourt rotation with Lowry, DeRozan, Vasquez and Lou Williams. The decision to bring Terrence Ross off the bench was a smart one, as he is not quite ready to be a starter on a playoff team. The biggest issue for the Raptors is their frontcourt. Jonas Valanciunas is a good player, but is too inconsistent to be relied upon day in and day out.
I agree with Jeb that they should have tried to grab a post presence before the deadline, but since they weren’t able to do so, they are going to have to rely very heavily on their backcourt to close out the season. I expect the Raptors to finish with the 4 seed, but they will still be a serious threat in the playoffs.
