   It's a blessing and a curse, the Raptors' depth. The fact is, all 15 guys on the Raptors' roster would easily land a rotation spot on almost any other team in the league.

   From MVP-candidates Kyle Lowry and Kawhi Leonard, all the way down to two-way player Jor...

   The Raptors took down the Washington Wizards, 117-113, in what was a close contest from start to finish. Here are my takeaways from the four-point victory:

   KD to Golden State. Lebron to Miami. Boogie Cousins to Golden State.
