The Raps won by 16 on the road. It wasn't like they eeked out a win. Other than for the first quarter, after which they trailed by only 2, they were pretty much in control. They were the better team tonight, and, as Lowry said post-game, it was a team win.


Yeah, but they also closed within 4 or 6 before harden got into foul trouble. Come on, if miles didn't hit those 3s at the beginning of the 4th, it may have been a very close finish.

We were the better team, I agree with that, and we deserved to win. But neither team played all that well and the constant fouls and weird feel of the game make it somewhat hard to judge.

Hopefully we follow up with a good performance tonight.

It’s basketball. It’s a game of runs. Has been since Day One.

Houston never got closer than 6 points. They actually closed the gap with Harden on the bench. And it’s not like Miles was the only guy making shots. Anderson and Harden also pulled off tough shots, but again that’s basketball. These things you constantly raise or attempt to underscore (at least when it is happening in favour of the Raptors) are not new phenomena.
