Raptors arrive in Orlando, bring the fire

Shawn Marion throws it down

Looks like the Garnett-less Celtics aren’t in as deep as I thought they were — As long as the Raptors keep going into Dwight Howard’s house and stealing important games from the Magic, that is. Somehow, that’s what happened last night after Rashard Lewis missed a potential game-tying three (with no one within 200 feet of him) and Toronto responded by making one of four free throws to seal the deal.

The win extends Toronto’s streak to a season-high five, and even with the playoffs out of reach, it bodes well for next season. Shawn Marion had another fine game, scoring 17 and adding 15 boards and six assists, and it’s suddenly looking as though he might actually be a nice fit on the team next season. Then again, when you win five straight, it makes Jay Triano look like he’d be a good fit for the head coach position next year, and that’s probably not for the best.

Chris Bosh also put together a strong game, scoring 24 points and adding 12 rebounds, while Jose Calderon scored 21 and had eight assists. For the Pops enthusiasts out there, the big man only saw five minutes of action and missed both his shots, but you’ll be glad to know (according to his Facebook) he’s starting his own blog and is looking for a title. I’ll keep the updates rolling on that…
