Inside the Purple Room GM 80-81: The banner was unveiled and the crowd went wild. The Raptors though didn’t jump for joy but rather took a moment to embrace how far they have come and moved on. There is always that tendency to play down to the level of your competition because you’ve already clinched a playoff spot and can cruise past the lesser teams.

They are young and a learning as a team to persevere and it has paid off.
