4. Raptors stay winning

This Toronto Raptors season is all about putting the past behind the team. Every record, superstition and streak has been broken and Game 6 is no exception.

If the Raptors don’t lead heading into the second half of a playoff road game, they don’t win. At least that’s what history tells us.

They were 0-23; now they are 1-23. Previous Raptors teams were either too shallow, too young or just simply too bad to win on the road.

Fortunately this team is the best the franchise has ever seen. Streaks that mattered in the past doesn’t apply to this year’s Raptors.

The factoids are fun but watching the Raptors squash them is where the true bliss comes from. With every passing tidbit about how bad the Raptors were, they almost go out of their way do expunge it with their play.

Every passing triumph shows that this year’s Raptors might be something seriously special.
