Despite a competent first half, the Toronto Raptors were unable to sustain their offence in the third and fourth quarters against the hungry Memphis Grizzlies. Unable to overcome a 10-point deficit, the Raptors dropped their third loss in a row. And while feels like the 20th time that the Toronto Raptors have dropped a second half lead, it wasn’t nearly as close as Thursday’s OT heartbreaker against the Washington Wizards.
With Toronto’s play-in chances all but removed, Raptors fans have quickly diverted their attention towards the draft lottery and the off-season. After all, there are still a lot of things for Raptors fans to look forward too. For example, both of the Toronto Raptors’ draft picks have already proven to be successful prospects. With a higher draft pick in sight, hopes of development have never been higher.
